The first E.Q. test I took was geared towards someone in the workplace. It asked questions with hypothetical situations that could arise at work, then listed four choices you could make in response to the situation. I scored a 55%, which falls in the average range. The second E.Q. test I took was similar to the first one, only it was about everyday situations dealing with friends or loved ones. Again, this quiz listed the situation with four responses you could choose from. I scored a 50%, which is again average. The quizzes must have been fairly accurate, as I scored almost the same score on both. It was at times hard to be honest with my answers, as I knew what the best answer was, but I had to think what I would really do in the situation.
I need to work most on my emotional honesty. I am not confident enough at times, so I don’t speak up or voice my opinion on things. I would like to become better at just saying what I think and not have second thoughts about it. I think most of my other areas are good. I can empathize well with other people and feel for them, but I think sometimes I may misread their emotions. Conflict handling is easy for me, as I know how to deal with problems and manage time well. I probably need to work on my resilience and change, too. When I’m put down or fail at something, I usually take it more personally than I should. I am too hard on myself at times. I also don’t like change very much, so I need to try and be more open to new things. My self-control is fine, I have no problems with that. Lastly, my emotional self-awareness is good as I can recognize where my weak spots are. I just need to keep working at them.
