The paper relates that the BarOn Emotional Quotient Inventory is described as the most useful emotional quotient inventory available to date. The manufacturer describes this test as measuring an individual's ability to deal with everyday demands and pressures. The paper explains that the scales range from the identification of very high functioning individuals who have no difficulty with issues of compassion or empathy, to those who appear to have significant difficulty in harnessing emotional awareness and developing social skills. The paper discusses how the test appears to be clinically and statistically valid in identifying individual strengths and weaknesses.
