Self-Scoring Emotional Intelligence Tests (Self-Scoring Tests)
Self-Scoring Emotional Intelligence Tests (Self-Scoring
Ever since psychologist Daniel Goleman published his landmark book Emotional Intelligence in 1995, psychology has shifted from measuring cold intellect alone to evaluating what is known as the “Emotional Quotient.” And your EQ may be even more important than your IQ for determining success. This compilation of tests will analyze your emotional intelligence from a variety of perspectives, help you pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses, and reveal aspects of your personality you may not have realized existed. The booklet is divided into two sections, with the first part containing eight tests aimed at measuring such qualities as self-image, independence, leadership, relationships, and job satisfaction. The second section contains a key for interpreting the scores, along with insightful explanations about your emotional reactions.

What Intelligence Tests Miss: The Psychology of Rational Thought
What Intelligence Tests Miss: The Psychology of Rational
Critics of intelligence tests—writers such as Robert Sternberg, Howard Gardner, and Daniel Goleman—have argued in recent years that these tests neglect important qualities such as emotion, empathy, and interpersonal skills. However, such critiques imply that though intelligence tests may miss certain key noncognitive areas, they encompass most of what is important in the cognitive domain. In this book, Keith E. Stanovich challenges this widely held assumption. Stanovich shows that IQ tests (or their proxies, such as the SAT) are radically incomplete as measures of cognitive functioning. They fail to assess traits that most people associate with “good thinking,” skills such as judgment and decision making. Such cognitive skills are crucial to real-world behavior, affecting the way we plan, evaluate critical evidence, judge risks and probabilities, and make effective decisions. IQ tests fail to assess these skills of rational thought, even though they are measurable cognitive processes. Rational thought is just as important as intelligence, Stanovich argues, and it should be valued as highly as the abilities currently measured on intelligence tests.
