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
- Intuition vs. Reason
- Creative Thinking
- Mood Redirected Attention
- Motivating Emotions
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.
