Emotional intelligence (EI) refers to the ability to perceive, understand, manage and express one's own emotions, as well as the ability to perceive, understand and influence the emotions of others in a constructive manner. It's a skill set vital for navigating social interactions, stress management, effective communication, empathy and making informed decisions based on emotional awareness.

Recognized as pivotal for personal and professional success, Emotional Intelligence (EI) impacts various facets of life, from relationships to leadership effectiveness and overall well-being. Those with high emotional intelligence are adept at handling stress, collaborating with others and navigating social intricacies, leading to better outcomes in personal and professional spheres.

The Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i) is a self-report tool designed to gauge emotional and social intelligence in individuals. It aims to provide insights into how individuals perceive, understand, and manage their own emotions, as well as how they perceive, understand and interact with others' emotions. The set of questions provided aims to assess your emotional self-awareness—a critical aspect of your emotional intelligence.
