Identify people with strong emotional intelligence

Emotional intelligence is a critical skill for future-focused organisations.

According to the World Economic Forum Future of Jobs Survey 2020, Emotional Intelligence (EI) is one of the top 15 skills for 2025. And while it’s important in itself – since people with strong EI are more aware of how other people act and better able to understand why they react as they do – it also underpins other essential skills. For example, emotionally intelligent people can be more creative thinkers, by understanding how emotions are linked to cognitive processes and using them appropriately. They’re better leaders, because they can successfully recognise and deal with their own and others’ emotions, and influence and inspire their team. And they’re likely to be more resilient and tolerant of stress, because they understand their reactions and how to “bounce back” after a setback.

Improve performance in roles requiring interaction with others

Find people who can lead, work well in a team and offer excellent customer service

EI is critical for all roles that require dealing effectively with other people, such as roles requiring leadership, teamwork or customer interactions. People with higher EI are skilled at perceiving and understanding their own and others’ emotions, making them better at recognising how someone is feeling and adapting their responses accordingly. They’re also good at pre-empting other people’s reactions and generating the relevant emotions in others. They can empathise with other people and use emotions strategically to resolve conflict and reconcile differences.

Use a test that objectively measures EI as an ability

Ability-based assessments give you an accurate and reliable measure of EI

Not all EI assessments are created equal. The best assessments will present candidates with a series of tasks that reliably and scientifically assess their ability to accurately perceive emotions, and to understand the connections between emotions and situations that lead to specific emotional reactions. Research has demonstrated strong links between ability-based measures of EI and important work outcomes such as interpersonal effectiveness, collaboration and teamwork, motivation and decision-making.

Our Emotional Intelligence assessment

Measure EI with an engaging and immersive assessment

Previously, organisations who wanted to assess EI were limited in the tools they could use. While there were accurate and reliable tools available, there was little consideration of the user experience. We created Emotify with the goal of providing a valid, ability-based, psychometric assessment of EI that also offered a fun, interactive and enjoyable assessment experience for candidates.

Emotify consists of two mini-games, Matching Faces and Emotional Ties, that assess a candidate’s ability to correctly identify emotions, and understand how emotions are generated by situations and how different emotions relate to each other.

  • Measures: Emotional perception, emotional understanding
  • Predicts: How well candidates can accurately perceive and understand their own and others’ emotions
  • Format: 2 mini-games
  • Time: Approximately 20 minutes (timed)
  • Ideal for: All roles, particularly those involving interpersonal interaction
