Ability Tests

There are many ways to assess a person's ability including:

Emotional Intelligence (EI)

This is a developing field, based on the premise that success for humans (in Life, business, studies, coping with change, communication in any situation etc.) is based on factors other than our first definition of 'intelligence'. At least six other types of intelligence appear to exist including Musical and Physical - Sir Yehudi Menuhin and David Beckham could be geniuses in these terms. 'Emotional Intelligence' contains components (or competencies) important for us to function in society effectively.

Seven competencies are: Self-awareness; Motivation; Influence; Conscientiousness and integrity; Emotional resilience; Interpersonal sensitivity; and Decisiveness.

Emotional Intelligence can be developed. So this tool can help identify strengths and areas for future development. Then we can compile a focused action plan to address development needs.
