How does the test look like?
Participants are provided with descriptions of emotional problems, and asked to indicate which emotion is most probable in a given situation, or to suggest the most appropriate action.
What is the scoring method?
Scoring is based on the judgments of experts: professional psychotherapists, trainers, and HR specialists.
Why is the test a good measure of emotional intelligence?
The validation study showed that the TIE is a reliable and valid test, suitable for both scientific research and individual assessment. Its internal consistency measures were as high as .88. In line with theoretical model of emotional intelligence, the results of the TIE shared about 10% of common variance with a general intelligence test, and were independent of major personality dimensions.
