The Multidimensional Emotional Intelligence Assessment – Workplace (MEIA-W) is a 144-item, self-report, trait-based measure of emotional intelligence (EI) based on Salovey and Mayer’s (1990) multidimensional model of EI. The assessment includes 10 primary scales (listed below). The items are work-related versions of the original items from the Multidimensional Emotional Intelligence Assessment (MEIA).

• Recognition of Emotion in the Self
• Regulation of Emotion in the Self
• Recognition of Emotion in Others
• Regulation of Emotion in Others
• Nonverbal Emotional Expression
• Empathy
• Intuition vs. Reason
• Creative Thinking
• Mood Redirected Attention
• Motivating Emotions

Distinguishing Features

The test construction method used to develop the MEIA sets it apart from other EI measures currently available on the market. Some of these unique features include:

• Distinct coverage of all 10 facets of Salovey and Mayer’s (1990) influential model of EI
• Minimized susceptibility to socially desirable responding and acquiescence response bias
• Documented content validity, structural validity, and incremental validity
• The use of work-context items has been reported to improve validity in personality tests over more general versions administered in work settings.
