How Good Your Emotional Intelligence Is

Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand, use, and manage your own emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges and defuse conflict.

This test is based on the work of psychologist Daniel Goleman, whose 1995 book Emotional Intelligence was a bestseller and brought the term into the mainstream.

This test sets out hypothetical situations and gives you four ways of reacting to it, and based on your answers gives you a score out of 200.

But don't worry if it's a little below par: one of Goleman's conclusions was that emotional intelligence is a skill which can be taught and learned, so just get studying.
