How emotionally Intelligent are you?

Emotional Intelligence (EI) is an essential part of our personality as it shows the way we interact with the others. While creating music, promoting your work online or having entrepreneurial activities, the EI is the one to guide you to success.


We found a test for you that could help you seeing your EI level and so to improve it, where the case. Here we go!

INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS


15-34 points

You need to work on your emotional intelligence. You may find that you feel overwhelmed by your emotions, especially in stressful situations; or, you may avoid conflicts because you think that you'll find it distressing.


It's likely, too, that you find it hard to calm yourself down after you've felt upset, and you may struggle to build strong working relationships.


Don't worry - there are plenty of ways that you can build emotional intelligence and related skills. Make sure you keep educating yourself towards it.


35-55 points

Your emotional intelligence level is OK. You probably have good relationship with some of your colleagues, but others may be more difficult to work with. There is space for improvement. Learning more about yourself and noticing your own progress sure is fun! Make sure you keep educating yourself towards it.


56-75 points

Great! You're an emotional intelligent person. You have very good relationships, and you probably find that people approach you for advice. However, when so many people admire your skills, it's easy to lose sight of your own needs. Researches have found that emotionally intelligent people have great potential for being good leadesrs. Realize this potential by seeking opportunities to improve even further on EI and other leadership competences.
