Few topics in recent years have captured the imagination of psychologists and the general public like emotional intelligence (EQ) - the ability to recognize, understand, regulate and ultimately use emotions effectively. Just as traditional measures of intelligence (IQ) tap our ability to understand and use abstract information, measures of EQ capture our ability to understand and use emotions - both our own and those of other people. Measures of IQ are no longer enough: in many - if not most - situations, EQ may be just as important as (or more important than) IQ. Until now, most measures of EQ have not been readily available to the public. Here, at last, Professor Mark Davis presents EQ in a clear and accessible way, with 25 tests that have been specially developed for this book. Each measure taps a specific component of EQ in a particular way to enable you to determine your particular strengths and weaknesses. The book concludes with suggestions about the practical, concrete steps you can take to improve your own EQ.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
