Another Emotional Intelligence Test

I recently took an Emotional Intelligence Test online. This is not the first time that I have taken one of these tests, and I could not find the test that I took last time but this one is not bad if you have 45 minutes to spare.

At the end there is a section that asks you to read faces and determine what the emotions on them most likely are. I knew this was an area that I have problems with but it was interesting to really see my own confusion. The obvious emotions like joy and anger I am able to pinpoint but the more neutral ones leave me lost.

However the situational questions that give context clues were much easier for me. I remember learning about context clues in elementary school. I use context clues in my every day life to help patch together situations and things that I don’t hear correctly due to my auditory processing problems. Sometimes I may only understand a few words in a sentence, but I can normally arrange them in a way that makes since in my mind to figure out what someone has said if I am feeling sharp.
This emotional intelligence test consists of two parts; a self-report portion and an ability portion. I scored a 61 and the test gave me the following description of my score.

You appear to have at least some basic skill when it comes to identifying, perceiving and expressing emotions in yourself and others. However, there is still a great deal of room to improve on this core ability. . . By improving your skills in this area of emotional intelligence, you will be in a better position to read others, understand how they feel, and effectively identify your own emotions. These skills form the basis of your ability to relate to others as well as your ability to understand yourself.

  1. Thanks for sharing! I always like taking these tests (even though I always score pretty similarly on them).

    I scored a whopping 33, so I’d say 61 is pretty impressive.

    My description definitely gave me a lot of “Wow, yeah that’s definitely me!” moments, though, and it was nice reading that, even if most of it was things I’m already aware of. (Here’s what it says):

    “Your results indicate that you need to work on improving the skills that can help you identify, perceive and express emotions in yourself and others. Difficulties in this area of emotional intelligence can hinder your ability to read others, to understand how they feel, and to effectively identify your own emotions. Lacking these skills could mean that you struggle to relate to others and may sometimes even question why you yourself behave the way you do.”

      1. Yeah, I don’t really like how artificial it feels to improve these things because of all the work and study needed, even though I could theoretically do it… And then there’s also my complete lack of motivation.

  2. I got the same 61 score and text results. The difficulties I had were mostly due to inexperience (not landing jobs, not having experience with coworkers, etc.). I’ve never really studied emotions class-wise, so I must have picked up much of my recognition from (quality) literature and entertainment.

  3. 64 Not too bad. Emotional perception 39, emotional thought 45, emotional understanding 36. I thought I would do better at them because I always thought I was good at emotional stuff, turns out I’m deluded and inconstant and a bit rubbish basically! Emotional management 50. 37 for ego maturity.
    Low self esteem, Not assertive and do not resolve conflicts in the most healthy manner. Those bits I knew! (flexibility limited =stubbornness…)
    I didn’t want to pay for the conclusion but I think I learnt a lot just from that.
