Emotional Intelligence is the ability to understand other people and yourself. This test examines how well you are able to understand trends in peoples personalities.
In this test you have to guess at real trends in real data.
This test consists of forty five pairs of statements that a person could make. For each pair you must decide if they are
directly related, where saying one would mean the person would probably be less likely to say the other. In practice, people who say "I love people" tend to be the same people who say "I like people".
inversely related, where saying one would mean that the person would probably not say the other. In practice, people who say "I love people" tend not to be the same people who say "I hate people".
unrelated, where saying would be no clue as to if the person would say the other
Your reponses will be compared against data from real personality tests where each statement was scored by thousands of participants on a five point scale. For example, here are the aggregate scores for the related statements "I start conversations" and "I don't mind being the center of conversations".
And here are the inversely related statements "I have a soft heart" and "I am not really interested in others".
Finally items can have no relation to each other at all, such as "I often forget to put things back in their proper place" and "I take time out for others".
All of the pairs have been chosen so if their is a relationship it is relatively strong, meaning that the average for "disagree" is at least 0.5 points different from "agree" and no level of intermediate agreement breaks the trend.
