Book Description

29 Oct 2002 Testing
It takes more than a high Intelligence Quotient (IQ) to be successful. A high Emotional Intelligence Quotient (EQ) is now recognized to be equally important. Emotional intelligence is a group of interconnected core skills: self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy and social skills. It is for that reason that many employers recognize the importance of emotional intelligence, and increasingly recruiters seek evidence of it during the selection process through an EQ test. Emotional intelligence has also become a regular item on management development/training programmes. This volume is designed to provide readers with an understanding of emotional intelligence, together with tools for testing their own emotional competence and guidance on improving their performance. It should be useful to anyone who faces an assessment of their EQ or those who want to maximize their effectiveness and improve their chances of career success.

More About the Author

Robert Wood has been a researcher, an academic and a business psychologist. Whatever he has written he has enjoyed doing, perhaps especially the three novels comprising the Moving Deckchairs trilogy. Mackem Mayhem is an autobiography about growing up in the North East and incidentally about a stint in Jamaica. In the late Sixties and early Seventies he attended the University of Chicago, living in an apartment just down the road from where Barack Obama would grow up. Taking off in the summer was imperative but with Illinois plates marked 'Land of Lincoln' was it a good idea to take a trip down south to places like Chattanooga? Imagine the reception. Then there were the 'dry' one-horse towns where the one horse left last night and where prohibition hadn't ended, never mind the Civil War. But he and his family survived and having written the technical stuff (his first book appeared when he was 27) and his memoir and his novels and his short stories he now writes walking books.

4.0 out of 5 stars HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 27 July 2004
By Tony H
This book provides an overview of the main concepts of Emotional Intelligence, followed by a self-reportiong questionnaire, based on the 5 main components of the concept. Although this cannot be regarded as anywahere near as rigorous as the BarOn EQ-i, or the MSCEIT tests, it does provide a layperson without the British Psychological Society level B qualification access to an easy to understand instrument with which to gain a basic insight into their relative strengths and weaknesses of EI. It is not perfect by any means, but it does not profess to be so. For the very small cost involved I would recommend this book to anyone who is starting out on the road to discovering the power of Emotional Intelligence.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book 19 Jan 2005
By M. Kusar - Published on
This book delivers what it promises, it allows you to self-test your emotional intelligence. I have found it extremely difficult to be honest with myself sometimes, since it is obvious to me what the most appropriate (emotionally intelligent) action is in a given situation.

My opinion is, that your emotional intelligence can only be profiled with a lot of help from someone else, someone very close to you with the ability to predict your reactions. That, or it is just too easy too look thru the questions in this book. I was awaiting those military-psych-test type of questions that seemingly have nothing to do with anything you can think of but combined with other questions they reveal the true you... well, no such luck here, I guess.

Don't get me wrong, the book is good and I think it by all means should help you bump up your EQ, since after reading it all, you actually became aware of your, shall I say, emotional cowardness. The message that the book delivers is at first perhaps confusing, you have to control your emotions, not open your heart to just anyone, at the same time, acknowledge your emotions and, thinking of feelings of others, express them in order to retain your inner balance.

I would recommend additional literature.
