EQ-i 2.0®

 

Emotional intelligence is an important factor in determining one’s ability to succeed in life and directly influences one’s general psychological well-being. Emotional intelligence, which is measured using an Emotional Quotient (EQ) is concerned with understanding oneself and others, relating to people, and adapting to and coping with the immediate surroundings. Most mature models of emotional intelligence – and Bar-On’s model remains the world’s most well-used and validated – identify key broad components of emotional intelligence.

What is the EQ-i 2.0® Instrument

The EQ-i 2.0® instrument builds on the success and insights of the BarOn EQ-i® instrument by introducing an updated model of emotional intelligence. It introduces some differences that stem from changes, based on extensive feedback, to assessment items, updated norms and rigorous reliability and validity studies.

The EQ-i 2.0® Model

The EQ-i 2.0® instrument measures emotional intelligence (EI) and how it can impact people and the workplace.

The 1-5-15 factor structure the EQ-i 2.0® features is one overarching EI score (Total EI), broken down into five composite scores which, in turn, are broken down into a total of 15 subscales.

While emotional intelligence is not the sole predictor of human performance and development potential, it is proven to be a key indicator in these areas. Emotional intelligence is not a static factor – to the contrary, one’s emotional intelligence changes over time and can be developed in targeted areas.
