Staying Purposeful During Change
In today's world, we see two forces influencing behaviors:
1. Social media algorithms dividing people and creating echo chambers.
2. Uncertainty and unrest reflecting a disintegration of society, civility, and safety.
Both forces reflect a sense that emotions are out of control. Reports of ineptitude, recklessness, and violence; an uptick in suicide rates, increasing cases of depression; and post-traumatic stress, dampen our emotional health and lead to malaise. To live a full live without shutting down our emotions to protect ourselves, we need to understand our emotions and those of others
How will this quiz help?
The questionnaire and the personalized guidance report will help you label emotions, understand their origins, comprehend them, control them, use them effectively in relationships and social settings, and make sound decisions.
What is the basis for this quiz?
In 1995, psychologist Daniel Goleman popularized the term Emotional Intelligence (EI). EI refers to a person's ability to effectively manage their emotions so that they can be expressed appropriately. According to Goleman, there are five components of emotional intelligence: self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills. Within these five components are four domains: personal competence, social competence, relationship management, and intrapersonal competencies.
Our emotional intelligence quiz is based on these four domains. The quiz will measure your competencies in each of these areas and provide insightful feedback to help you develop your EI.
Why should I take this quiz?
Most people believe they understand their emotions. However, without some understanding, combined with self-control, our emotions will control us rather than the other way around. When our emotions control us, we are more likely to misjudge or misunderstand a situation. They can grip us and block our rationality and reason, which might lead us to regret our words, decisions, or actions.
This quiz collects your responses and generates a personalized guidance report. Your report will indicate how aware you are of your emotions, how much you control them, and how well you manage your social interactions. It also provides insight into your specific leadership style.
When should I take it?
Tapping into our emotions helps us communicate, interact, and collaborate with others more effectively. Any time is a good time to understand your level of Emotional Intelligence and refresh your understanding of how you and others handle emotions. So what are you waiting for? Take the quiz and see how emotionally intelligent you really are!
