The Multidimensional Emotional Intelligence Assessment (MEIA) is a next-generation assessment of Emotional Intelligence (EI) with several valuable and unique qualities that distinguish it from more traditional measures. The MEIA is the only trait-based, self-report measure of EI with distinct coverage of all 10 components of Salovey and Mayer's (1990) influential EI model. Furthermore, the methods of test construction address important shortcomings found in many popular EI assessments.

  • Minimized susceptibility to socially desirable responding and acquiescence response bias
  • Documented content validity, structural validity, and incremental validity
