Emotional Intelligence

As an emotional intelligence measurement and development psychometric tool, the MSCEIT is an abilities – based test, measuring real emotional intelligence skill. The Langley Group is one of the top providers of this tool, and our MSCEIT report measures and details a person’s emotional intelligence abilities. The report also includes personal development strategies to enhance relationships, performance and leadership skills.

Emotional intelligence is now seen as a critical tool in business. The World Economic Forum report into the Future of Jobs places Emotional Intelligence in the top ten skills required in the workplace in 2020.  Two decades of scientific and business research shows the value of emotional intelligence for leaders, sales people and anyone whose job involves influencing and engaging people.

This foundational skill underpins our capacity to work well with others, manage stress and make effective decisions, and we can practice and improve our EI, increasing individual and business performance. By understanding the science behind emotional intelligence and how to accurately assess, predict and develop emotional intelligence, businesses can take a far more targeted approach to people development.

The Mayer-Salovey-Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test (MSCEIT) directly measures the fundamental capacity of emotional intelligence. The original abilities-based emotional intelligence test the MSCEIT is like an IQ test for emotional reasoning.

It assists people to gain insights into real emotional intelligence abilities to help predict and enhance success. The test was developed by Peter Salovey, Jack Mayer and David Caruso, pioneers in the field of emotional intelligence.

As a MSCEIT practitioner, you will be able to accurately assess and develop people’s emotional intelligence abilities. The accreditation programme equips you with the knowledge, experience and skill to understand, interpret and debrief the MSCEIT Profile and also gives a thorough grounding in how to apply it personally and professionally. This advanced training explores the science of emotional intelligence and provides you with a range of emotional mastery tools to further develop these abilities in yourself and others.

The International Coach Federation accredits MSCEIT Accreditation for 24 CCEUs (18.5 core competency hours and 5.5 resource development hours) toward ongoing professional development for ICF ACC-level coaches and higher.

The MSCEIT is designed to assess and develop emotional intelligence ability in four key areas:

  • Recognise their own and others’ emotions
  • Generate and use emotions in problem solving
  • Understand emotions and how emotions may change
  • Manage their own and others’ emotions.

Improving EI abilities enables people to use this information strategically and intelligently to communicate more effectively, increase personal resilience and achieve goals.

If your organisation is keen to start embracing emotional intelligence and leveraging the benefits, then a MSCEIT assessment and a debrief carried out by a qualified practitioner is a great place to start. The assessment is conducted online, takes about 40 minutes, and afterwards a one-hour debrief of the results is conducted.  The test measures emotional intelligence, and predicts leadership, interpersonal communication and performance and the results are presented in a comprehensive report

Based on scenarios typical of everyday life, the MSCEIT measures how well people perform tasks and solve emotional problems, rather than having them provide their own subjective assessment of their emotional skills.

Skills tested include the ability to:

  • identify emotions expressed in a face;
  • create feelings that can help solve problems, communicate a vision or lead people;
  • predict how someone will react emotionally; and
  • enhance decision making by integrating thought and emotion.

Such skills play a vital role in just about every organisational function, from leadership and team-building to negotiation and planning.

The test reveals a total EI score, two area scores, four branch scores and eight task scores with graphic representations and detailed explanation of score meanings. Supplementary scatter scores are also provided and a positive-negative bias score. Individual scores are analysed against normative samples based on extensive MSCEIT use at research sites around the world, so results are accurately benchmarked.


Our MSCEIT Report paints a complete picture of a person’s real emotional intelligence abilities and includes reflective activities and tangible personal development strategies.
