The Life Skills Inventory (LSI) is designed to meet the need for a brief assessment instrument to help people identify their life skills proficiencies and deficiencies. It is based on the notion that success in developing a career, being successful in a career and life, and making effective career transitions is highly dependent on the effective use of critical life skills.

Life skills are a wide array of psycho-social and interpersonal skills, which can help people to make informed decisions, communicate effectively, and develop coping and self-management skills that may help an individual to lead a healthy life and a productive career.  Many critical life skills were found in the research that could be used to help people be more successful professionally and personally. These skills focused primarily on an ability to: communicate effectively, manage stress well, manage negative emotions such as anger, manage money, manage time, and implement effective career skills. The skills make up the scales for the Life Skills Inventory.

A person’s life skills IQ is comprised of many types of intelligence and include life skills such as:

  • Physical Intelligence Life skills related to nutritional practices; interest in regular exercise; consistent and adequate sleep; practical and safe use of substances; optimism about one’s ability to take care of health problems; relaxation; and deep breathing.

  • Emotional Intelligence Life skills related to an awareness of one’s emotions; the ability to maintain an even emotional state with appropriate emotional responses in reaction to life events; the ability to maintain control over emotional states; the ability to experience happiness and positive emotional states; and the ability to understand one’s feelings.
