The total Emotional Intelligence score is at the core, or centre of the model.

The subscales are the building blocks of EI.

The composite scales are the high-level categories that contain the subscales:

  • Self perception
  • Self expression
  • Interpersonal
  • Decision making
  • Stress Management

And all of these work together to impact emotional and social functioning and overall performance, which includes well-being, or Happiness.

EQ-i 2.0® consists of 133 statements that cover a wide range of emotional and social functioning. Clients rate how true each statement is for themselves on a 5-point scale, along with scores for four validity indices. It takes approximately 30 minutes to administer and is a self-report. It is appropriate for persons aged 18 years & older.
