EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

PERSONALIZED GUIDANCE REPORT

Emotional intelligence is the capacity to recognize our feelings and those of others, motivating ourselves and managing emotions effectively in ourselves and others. This quiz focused on four areas and twelve competencies related to them. Levels of Emotional Intelligence are measured by: 

  • Self-Awareness: recognizing our own emotions.  

  • Self-Management: effectively managing our own emotions.  

  • Social Awareness: recognizing the emotions of others. 

  • Relationship Management: applying our understanding of emotions to our dealings with others.  

The following graphic is based on your responses and reveals insights into your emotional intelligence. 

OVERVIEW

SELF-AWARENESS

Self-Awareness is the ability to be aware of our emotions.

EMOTIONAL AWARENESS

Emotional Awareness is the ability to recognize our emotions, differentiate among different ones, and understand the impact of emotions. Other people might understand and experience emotions differently than you do. Also, you might trigger emotions in others, so being sensitive to this possibility will help you communicate more effectively.

YOUR PERSONAL GUIDANCE

Your responses indicate that you are sometimes in tune with your emotions. At times you are aware of the emotion you are experiencing and can identify that emotion. Sometimes you understand that one can experience a range of emotions. You can sometimes understand why you feel a particular emotion at a given point. You may know your reactions to these emotions and realize that thoughts drive your feelings. Sometimes you use your perception of emotions to guide your actions. When interacting with others, your level of awareness helps you be in touch with your feelings sometimes but not always. Occasionally you can use this awareness to guide your interactions with others (friends, family, and colleagues), your perception of others, and your decisions. Increasing your awareness could help you predict your reactions to people or situations, which may help you respond more effectively or remove yourself from situations you are not ready to handle in personal and social settings or at Work.

SELF-MANAGEMENT

Self-Management is your ability to manage your emotions effectively. 

EMOTIONAL SELF-CONTROL

Emotional Self-control is the ability to keep emotions under control. Other people might be influenced by emotions more or less than you. Understanding other individuals' levels of self-control can help you communicate with them more effectively. 

YOUR PERSONAL GUIDANCE

Your responses indicate that you may sometimes be in control of your emotions. You are not always able to immediately realize when emotions start taking control. You can sometimes control your reactions and behavior but not always. You may, at times, find ways to calm yourself. You may sometimes focus on the thoughts running through your mind and try to change the negative thoughts to positive ones to handle your emotions better. However, you cannot always identify the reason behind your emotions and use that awareness to help you control them effectively. Your ability to control emotions can sometimes help you be objective in understanding people and perspectives, but not always, especially during an emotionally charged situation or personal emotional crisis. It can sometimes help you objectively understand perspectives to make good decisions. As you are sometimes aware that emotions can impact behavior, you may sometimes, but not always, tend to hold back before reacting during heated arguments or a stressful situation. For example, you can help cool off from a heated argument and get back to constructive discussions. Sometimes, but not always, you have an insight into the root cause of emotions, which can help you change negative thoughts to positive ones and help you handle different perspectives. By further increasing your emotional self-control, you will be able to see the person as a whole and not just in the context of the argument. In work situations, you can reevaluate positions and take appropriate steps.

ACHIEVEMENT ORIENTATION

Achievement Orientation is our desire to meet or exceed a standard of excellence. Other people might seek achievement more or less than you, and understanding other individuals' achievement orientation will help you better understand how they manage themselves.

YOUR PERSONAL GUIDANCE

Your responses indicate that challenges and goals drive you. You believe in yourself and your ability to meet and achieve your goals. You are self-motivated and take on new challenges once you accomplish a previous goal. You do not stop at what is required but go beyond to exceed your expectations of yourself. Your drive to achieve goals and conquer challenges will help you with your work but may impact your relationships. You can take calculated risks, set challenging goals and perform well at work, resulting in success, self-satisfaction, and recognition.

POSITIVE OUTLOOK

A Positive Outlook is an ability to look positively at situations, problems, stress, self, and others. Other people may have a more or less optimistic view than you. Understanding other individuals' approaches will help you understand their perspectives and communicate effectively.

YOUR PERSONAL GUIDANCE

Your responses indicate that you are sometimes positive in your approach to and interpretation of events. You often look at the bright side of things and can help others think and stay positive. You can sometimes but not always, look at life events or daily occurrences positively. You can sometimes have a positive outlook toward stressful things, which can help you interpret events and comments from friends, family, colleagues, and others in a positive light. A more optimistic approach would positively impact your relationships and work and help you better deal with your colleagues to pursue goals despite setbacks. In addition, a more positive outlook can help you stay optimistic in times of emotional turmoil and upbeat in times of uncertainty.

ADAPTABILITY 

Adaptability is openness to change and flexibility to adapt to change. Other people might be impacted by change more or less than you. Understanding other individuals' levels of adaptability and flexibility will help you understand their perspective, empathize, and learn. 

YOUR PERSONAL GUIDANCE

Your responses indicate that you are stable and reasonable amid pressure and uncertainties. You are even able to recognize the need to change. When changes are required, you willingly accept them and can rework your priorities and transition smoothly. Your adaptability helps your relationships and your work. You can support your family, friends, and colleagues amid pressure, changes and uncertainties. You can lead and help others adjust when life events throw up changes. Your ability to be flexible and accept changes allows you to adapt quickly to new expectations, new kinds of work, and people. As a result, changes do not perturb you.

SOCIAL AWARENESS 

Social Awareness is the ability to recognize emotions in others. 

EMPATHY 

Empathy is understanding others' feelings and perspectives as if they were yours. Other people may be more or less empathetic than you. Understanding other individuals' empathy levels will help you communicate and interact with them more effectively.

YOUR PERSONAL GUIDANCE

Your responses indicate that you enjoy learning about people's concerns and truly listen to them. Your empathy helps you accurately understand their feelings, perspectives, and non-verbal signals and helps them feel heard. You can understand others' perspectives and feelings even when they aren't expressed openly or in many words. Your ability to empathize is very beneficial and a great strength while interacting with loved ones and at work. You may be the go-to person for problems when others are dealing with issues and need an empathetic ear. This skill can go a long way if you become a counselor or life coach. In addition, empathy is a great skill to have as a team member, manager, and leader.

ORGANIZATIONAL AWARENESS 

Organizational Awareness is the ability to read a group's emotional dynamics and power relationships. Other people might be more or less aware of group dynamics than you. Understanding other individuals' sensitivity to emotions in a group can help you understand their perspectives and reactions, which will help you work with groups more effectively.

You try to connect to the group's emotions and understand the group's dynamics better. You are aware of the dynamics and relationships in a group, which is a great asset at work. For example, you can identify the power play among team members — and managers and team members. You use this understanding to identify networks, evaluate team dynamics, and improve your decisions and peer interactions. Your awareness helps you resolve conflicts and even manage others.

CONCLUSION
