Our Emotional Intelligence (EQ) assessment is based on a multi-dimensional view of EQ. Our EQ score is normed based on the standard bell curve, which results in 16 percent of individuals scoring “low,” 68 percent of individuals scoring “average” and 16 percent scoring “high.” Using test-retest reliability, all reliability estimates exceed the minimally acceptable level of .770, thus showing that our EQ assessments measure behavioral tendencies consistently and reliably.
