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.

Mark Davis is Professor of Psychology at Eckerd College in St Petersburg, Florida. He has studied social behaviour for more than 20 years, and his articles on such topics as loneliness, social support, helping behaviour, empathy and interpersonal conflict have been widely published.From Publishers Weekly:
Ten years after Daniel Goleman's blockbuster Emotional Intelligence, Davis, a professor of psychology, offers self-administered tests for readers to evaluate their own degree of emotional intelligence, or EQ. Davis acknowledges that the tests haven't been developed with as much precision as expensive commercial instruments. The tests are divided into chapters on "recognizing emotional states," "understanding emotions," "regulating and controlling emotions" and "using emotions effectively," and are in a variety of questionnaire-based styles. At the end of the book, Davis provides a chapter on how to improve one's emotional intelligence. Although some tests won't apply to all readers (many of the scenarios and questions refer to children and spouses, for example), the book makes a concise introduction to the parameters of emotional intelligence, and its corollaries in behavior.
