Increasing emotional ‘literacy’ can clarify vision, increase flexibility and help to build stronger relationships. The EIQ3D also addresses the critical weakness of such questionnaires – that self-report is a poor way to measure self-awareness! A unique feature of EIQ3D is the paired assessment – the ‘3D’ aspect – which allows another person to comment on an individual’s emotional intelligence.
The combination of a thorough coverage of emotional intelligence, and the ability to include more than one perspective, gives the EIQ3D a useful role in numerous areas of personal development.
