MEIA-R Psychometric Summary

The MEIA-R is a personality-based assessment of emotional intelligence (EI) that measures the tendency to perceive, understand, regulate, and express emotions in the self and others. Since the original version of the MEIA was published in 2006, thousands of individuals have used the assessment to enhance their awareness and understanding of EI and develop their EI capabilities. The MEIA-W-R tailors the content of the MEIA-R to assess EI in a work setting. Download the psychometric summary today to learn more about how the MEI-R differs from the MEIA-W-R.
