Background & Theory
The TEIQue is based on K. V. Petrides' trait emotional intelligence theory, from 1998. It is one of the world's best-researched and most widely applied psychometric instruments.
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 range of behaviours and achievements, which are vital in the workplace (job performance, job satisfaction, job stress, leadership, organizational citizenship, organizational commitment, teamwork).
The Thomas TEIQue is a self-report questionnaire. Individuals indicate their level of agreement on a 1-7 Likert scale (1 'disagree completely' to 7 'agree completely') with 153 unique items.
