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).
Format of the Thomas TEIQue
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.
Reliability & Validity
The Thomas TEIQue has been subject to rigorous scientific testing to determine its reliability and validity as a psychological assessment. It is registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) after it was audited against the technical criteria established by the European Standing Committee on Tests and Testing, part of the European Federation of Psychologists' Associations.
