How to test your Intelligence, IQ or EQ?
The Emotional Intelligence Appraisal is a test that measures your
emotional intelligence (EQ) using Daniel Goleman's benchmark model. It's
easy to use and score, and it shows you how to improve your EQ with
practical strategies based upon your unique profile.
Emotional intelligence is the ability to manage emotions and relationships. It is critical to success in work and personal life. In fact, studies show that EQ predicts job performance 2 to 1 over intelligence and job experience.
Use the Emotional Intelligence Appraisal to measure your EQ in the four critical skills from Daniel Goleman's model. The test measures Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, and Relationship Management. The test is ideal for personal use, or for training in the workplace. The Emotional Intelligence Appraisal is used by Fortune 500 corporations worldwide in training and leadership development programs
Building on nearly eighty years of scientific work, The Handbook of
Emotional Intelligence is the first definitive resource that brings
together a stellar panel of academics, researchers, and practitioners, in
the field. Sweeping in scope, the text presents information on the most
important conceptual models, reviews and evaluates the most valid and
reliable methods for assessing emotional intelligence, and offers specific
guidelines for applying the principles of Emotional Intelligence in a
variety of settings.
The Handbook of Emotional Intelligence is a
must read for anyone who is serious about emotional intelligence. Through
this book, Bar-On and Parker have brought together a world-class collection
of academics, psychologists and researchers. Before the Handbook was
written, researchers and practitioners who wanted to get to the bottom of
emotional intelligence needed to look up thousands of sources to even start
their research. Bar-On and Parker have completed a sterling effort - the
chapters include hundreds of research studies and the links are made between
many different strands of research on intelligence and emotion and they are
brought together in a 'tome' of useful information. This book is not a light
piece of bedtime reading. It is a text book which should be on the shelf of
anyone who wants to hear direct from the key researchers who have helped to
create the field of Emotional Intelligence, so well popularized by Daniel
Goleman in his book 'Emotional Intelligence'.

Successful Intelligence: How Practical and Creative Intelligence
Determine Success in Life
If Sternberg is right, IQ tests measure only "inert intelligence," academic knowledge that does not necessarily lead to goal-directed action or real-world problem-solving.
Professor of psychology and education at Yale, he argues that a different type of brain power, "successful intelligence," determines one's ability to cope in career and in life. "Successfully intelligent" people capitalize on their strengths and correct or compensate for their weaknesses; self-motivating and flexible in their work style, they create their own opportunities, actively seek out role models, recognize and accurately define problems and know when to persevere.
Of particular interest is Sternberg's contention that successful intelligence can be nurtured and developed in our schools by providing students with curricula that will challenge their creative and practical capabilities, not just their analytical skills. Although successful intelligence, as defined here, eventually comes to sound like a catch-all category for positive mental habits, this insightful, savvy guide will help readers avoid self-sabotage and translate thought into action.

IQ and Human Intelligence
The study and measurement of human intelligence is one of the most controversial subjects in psychology.
For much of its history, the focus has been on differences between people, what it means for one individual to be more intelligent than the other, and how such differences might have arisen. With the emphasis on these issues, the efforts to understand the general nature of intelligence have been obscured.
The author provides clear, comprehensive, and extremely readable introduction to this difficult subject.
In addition to a discussion of the traditional topics raised by IQ tests, this book attempts to bring the theory and data of cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience to bear on some of these other, equally important scientific questions.
