Background & Theory

The Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire (TEIQue - pronounced TQ) was developed, and is continually updated, by K.V. Petrides, PhD at his London Psychometric Laboratory, currently based at University College London (UCL).

The TEIQue is based on K. V. Petrides' trait emotional intelligence (trait EI) theory, which views the construct as a constellation of emotional self-perceptions located at the lower levels of personality hierarchies. Trait EI provides a complete operationalisation of the affective aspects of personality, meaning that it assesses the emotional world of the individual comprehensively.

Among other psychological characteristics, the TEIQue assesses our beliefs about our emotional abilities (e.g., how good we believe we are at identifying, understanding, and managing our own and other people's emotions). These beliefs are strong predictors of a remarkable range of behaviours and achievements, many of which are vital in the workplace (job performance, job satisfaction, job stress, leadership, organisational citizenship, organisational commitment, teamwork, etc.).
