Multidimensional Emotional Intelligence Assessment (MEIA)


  • Research on emotional intelligence (EI) where a comprehensive, trait-based measure of EI is needed
  • Counseling aid for guidance and career counselors who can use the results as a basis for discussion about career and further educational opportunities


The Multidimensional Emotional Intelligence Assessment (MEIA) is a 150-item, self-report, trait-based measure of emotional intelligence (EI) based on Salovey and Mayer’s (1990) multidimensional model of EI. The assessment includes 10 primary scales (listed below), and an Infrequency scale to detect non-purposeful responding.

  • Recognition of Emotion in the Self
  • Regulation of Emotion in the Self
  • Recognition of Emotion in Others
  • Regulation of Emotion in Others
  • Nonverbal Emotional Expression
  • Empathy
  • Intuition versus Reason
  • Creative Thinking
  • Mood Redirected Attention
  • Motivating Emotions

  • Inclusion of an infrequency scale to detect non-purposeful (invalid) responding
