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 do not drive you. You rarely set goals or challenges for yourself. You may work on a goal but are unlikely to exceed expectations. You may need to push yourself toward achieving your goals, as motivating yourself is difficult. You do not think about managing your performance and may require someone to set goals for you. Your desire to achieve goals and conquer challenges is unlikely to impact your relationships. However, increasing your level of drive could help you at work. You can achieve success, recognition, and satisfaction when you take calculated risks and set challenging goals to achieve them.

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 tend to have a bleak view of events in life. You probably expect things to go wrong and may feel stressed. When events or people upset you, you tend to think negatively and assume the worst. Most often, people around you coax you to think positively. Increasing your positive approach would benefit your personal and work relationships. Turning a stressful message into a positive one can help you avert any negative feelings or thoughts you may experience and deal effectively with others (friends, family, and colleagues). Maintaining a positive outlook allows you to pursue your goals despite uncertainty, setbacks, and obstacles. Increasing your positive approach in times of emotional turmoil will help you stay positive and calm.

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 sometimes open to change. Pressures and uncertainties sometimes perturb you. Sometimes you welcome change and transition smoothly by focusing on your priorities. You are sometimes adaptable and flexible, which helps with your relationships and work. This skill enables you to deal with pressures and stress effectively at times but not always. However, with increased adaptability, you can deal efficiently with changes, pressures, and stress at home, in your social circles, and at work. In addition, becoming more adaptable and flexible will help you welcome changes and new initiatives at work.

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.

YOUR PERSONAL GUIDANCE

Your responses indicate that you can often identify the prevailing emotion in a group. You can sometimes also decipher the power play of emotions among group members. You can sometimes but not always, identify the influencers and networks in the group. At times, you are aware of group dynamics, which can help you understand the relationships among people and work well with colleagues. For example, you can use your understanding of team dynamics to understand your colleagues, interact with them successfully, and negotiate more effectively. In addition, increased awareness can help you identify networks and help resolve conflicts and manage others.

CONCLUSION

Emotional intelligence is the capacity to recognize our feelings and those of others, motivate ourselves, and manage emotions effectively in ourselves and others. Developing competence in the areas Self Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, and Relationship Management will help you reduce stress and develop meaningful relationships with colleagues, friends, and loved ones.

RELATIONSHIP MANAGEMENT

Relationship Management involves applying your understanding of emotions when dealing with others.

INFLUENCE

Influence is the ability to persuade others. Other people may be more or less influential than you. So, understanding other individuals' influencing skills may help you better understand their interactions and influence on others.  

YOUR PERSONAL GUIDANCE

Your responses indicate that you can persuade others to agree with your viewpoints, but not consistently. You can sometimes convince others and win over them; you may sometimes realize your impact on others and inspire them. You can influence others at times but not always. Increasing your influencing skills can help you gather supporters for a social cause, a community event, a get-together of friends and family, or achieve a vision or complete a project at work. You may sometimes be able to convince others of a viewpoint you strongly hold.

COACHING AND MENTORING

Emotional intelligence relating to coaching and mentoring is the interest in helping others hone their skills and abilities. Other people might be better or worse at coaching and mentoring than you. Understanding other individuals' interests in coaching and mentoring can help you contemplate how you want to interact with the person.  

YOUR PERSONAL GUIDANCE

Your responses indicate that you are not interested in guiding others. This lack of interest could be because you do not like it or may not have found an opportunity to do it. You don't seem interested in being a guide or a mentor, and you probably have not considered it a role you would enjoy. Increasing your interest in guiding and mentoring could help you with your relationships and work. For example, you could guide your friends and family to achieve their goals. By developing this interest, you would find ways to guide or mentor others and provide support during their journey.

CONFLICT MANAGEMENT 

Conflict Management is the ability to de-escalate and resolve conflicts. Other people might manage conflicts more or less effectively than you. Understanding how others manage conflicts will help you think, analyze, and process conflicts more effectively.

YOUR PERSONAL GUIDANCE

Your responses indicate that you can sometimes decide between two equally desirable or undesirable options. Such decisions may cause stress, internal conflicts, and a sense of helplessness. You can sometimes but not always manage conflicts between friends, family, and colleagues and help others collaborate and cooperate. Understanding different perspectives can help you find solutions that are acceptable to everyone when friends, family, or colleagues disagree with each other.

INSPIRATIONAL LEADERSHIP 

Inspirational Leadership is a style that inspires and guides others. Others might be adopting a leadership style that is more or less inspirational than yours. Understanding other individuals' leadership styles can help you understand others and potentially improve your style. 

YOUR PERSONAL GUIDANCE

Your responses indicate that you prefer to explain specific tasks than inspire others to do their work. You may be wary of trusting others. Stressful situations often take a toll on you and may make you unable to perform well at work. You tend to believe that learning should happen in isolation. You don't seem to find value in motivating or influencing others. You like to be practical and task-oriented. Increasing your interest in being a leader who inspires and guides others will help you personally and at work. Motivating and influencing your loved ones, friends, family, and colleagues is fulfilling. If you can gain others' trust and influence them, you can guide them toward any goal they set for themselves or toward a common goal or vision.

TEAMWORK

Teamwork is working with others toward a shared goal. Other people may engage with teams differently than you. Understanding how others interact within a group can help you better understand the team's dynamics.

YOUR PERSONAL GUIDANCE

Your responses indicate that you are competitive and engage with teams as a strong individual rather than a team player. You do not indulge in self-disclosure to earn others' trust or otherwise. When you see intolerance or bias, you choose not to intervene. You may think that differences of opinion reflect a lack of bonding rather than an aspect to be understood and respected. You seem to be an individualist, which may not be helpful in your personal or working relationships. Your competitive spirit will not help you gain others' trust. You could be a great asset to the team and achieve goals if you do not work with a personal agenda. Others may not stand by you as you choose not to stand up for others. However, if you stand up against bias, people will support you. Developing your teamwork skills and seeking to understand their perspectives will help you gain the trust of your friends, family, colleagues, and others. You will also be able to identify emotional undercurrents, networks, and cliques, which will help you work in teams to achieve common goals and bring everyone together.
