It can be difficult to come up with career change ideas, particularly if you’ve been in the same profession for a while. Whilst you may be certain your current role is no longer a good fit, figuring out what might suit you better is not always easy.

Emotional Intelligence Assessment (TEIQue)

 An emotional intelligence questionnaire is a series of questions whereby an individual rates themselves and measures their self-perception of their own emotions and personality on a certain scale.

Emotional intelligence is a psychological construct that has become exceptionally popular in both the academic and human resources literature. The ability to manage your emotions and those of others has become an increasingly important part of the modern working environment.

The psychological concept of emotional intelligence has been measured using psychometric assessments since the 1990’s. Early theories viewed emotional intelligence like a cognitive ability; something that can be learned and trained. The Thomas International, Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire (TEIQue), based on Dr. K.V. Petrides’ trait emotional intelligence theory, is a unique assessment that views emotional intelligence as a collection of personality traits.
