Emotional Intelligence Scoring

Scoring Summary 

EQ scores are produced from raw scores obtained from subscales based on factorial components of emotional intelligence.  Raw scores are converted to standard scores with 100 as the mean and standard deviations set at 15 points.   An emotional intelligence score helps to predict "success" in life.  It reflects one's current coping skills, one's ability to deal with daily environmental demands, one's degree of common sense, and, ultimately, one's overall mental health.


Total EQ Scale Score:  This score gives a general indication of how emotionally and socially intelligent you are; it encapsulates how successful you are in coping with environmental demands and presents a snapshot of your emotional well being. This score provides only a general indicator and should be interpreted in light of the following EQ subscales.
