Predict, assess and develop emotional intelligence abilities.
Gain unprecedented insights about people’s real emotional intelligence abilities to help you enhance their success. The only abilities-based emotional intelligence test, the Mayer-Salovey-Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test (MSCEIT) takes a direct, unmediated measure of this fundamental capacity.
Developed by Peter Salovey, Jack Mayer and David Caruso, originators in the field of emotional intelligence, MSCEIT is like an IQ test for emotional reasoning. This makes the MSCEIT test ideal for situations where people may want to create a positive impression or ‘fake good’ and challenges them with information about themselves they rarely get from other sources.
MSCEIT is designed to assess and develop people’s ability to recognise, understand and manage emotions in themselves and others so they can use emotions more intelligently. These abilities enable people to monitor their own and others’ feelings and emotions, and use this information strategically and intelligently to communicate more effectively, increase personal resilience and achieve goals.
Practical applications for organisations
MSCEIT can make a decisive contribution to effective workforce selection and development initiatives. It increases the efficacy of leadership development and other training, accelerates coaching, renders employee recruitment and selection more efficient and reliable, and helps improve group processes. Recommended for anyone in roles involving significant levels of management, interpersonal communication, team work and customer service, MSCEIT helps achieve more effective leadership, greater productivity, higher customer satisfaction and enhanced engagement.
We integrate MSCEIT into our flagship Leading with Emotional Intelligence program to promote self-awareness in critical areas, give people accurate insights into their real emotional intelligence abilities and help them design tangible and specific strategies to improve their skills. Our unique personal development reports, coupled with in-depth debriefs with our qualified experts, give practical and personalised insights to kick-start development.
