Would you like to know your emotional intelligence? In contrast to regular old intelligence, emotional intelligence is all about how in tune you are with your own emotions and the emotions swirling around you. Do you have good emotional control, intuition, and empathy? Or do you fly off the handle or stay immune to the emotions of the people you love?
We can have some idea of our own emotional intelligence, but ultimately, I believe we can be blind to how well we handle the our feelings. Have you ever met someone with low emotional control? Do you think that person knew that they were so bad at handling emotions? My guess is no!
I have devised these quizzes to give us all a glimpse into our emotional intelligence. Don’t worry if you don’t score exactly where you want to be. Emotional intelligence is fluid; we can always improve our emotional control and intuition.
What’s Your EQ (Emotional Intelligence Quotient)? – This is my spin on the classic emotional intelligence test. It is a long and comprehensive quiz, and it will let you know exactly where your emotional intelligence stands. I recommend checking in on this EQ quiz periodically to track your progress!
How Empathetic Are You? – Do you consider yourself an empathetic person? I think we all would say yes, but true empathy requires really putting yourself in someone else’s shoes. This quiz will let you know if you are effectively empathizing with others or not.
The Five Factor Emotional Intelligence Test – Once you determine your EQ, unless you are an emotional superstar, you probably would like to do some work on your emotional intelligence. That’s what this five factor emotional intelligence quiz is for. This quiz will show you where you’re succeeding in emotional intelligence and where you still need to do some work.
Are You An Optimist or Pessimist? – Whenever I have trouble managing my emotions, I try to remind myself that it all comes down to outlook. It’s really that simple, but also that complicated. If I can turn my frown upside down, not only does it make me happier, it increase my empathy towards others. How optimistic or pessimistic are you right now? Take this quiz to find out!
How Emotionally Mature Are You? – I’ll be honest, sometimes having emotional intelligence feels like being more grown up than I really feel like being. Do you ever feel the same way? This quiz will show you your emotional maturity level. See if you have room to improve or if you’re already emotionally “adulting.”
How Happy Are You? – When it comes down to it, it’s all about finding as much happiness as you can in life. I’m a firm believer that emotional intelligence will get you there. Do you agree? Or do you find your happiness elsewhere? Take this quiz to see how happy you really are. I’d be especially interested to hear from people who score low or medium on emotional intelligence and high on happiness.
