EmoSocio EI Model

Yet another EI Model?

Significant efforts have been allocated over the last thirty years towards the definition and measurement of the Emotional Intelligence (EI) construct. Several EI theories and models have been produced to support psychological assessment processes. However, barriers are identified for their wide adoption and exploitation by social scientists. The absence of a common structured format to represent concepts in EI models has resulted in lack of clarity and consistency, while hindering comparison, validation and extensive evaluation processes. Provision of open access to such models and measurement instruments has not been promoted so far, however, considered crucial for their wide adoption. Furthermore, the inclusion of indexes from the sociometry domain can facilitate participatory modeling by multidisciplinary scientists during the development of social and emotional training programs. To address these challenges, we propose the EmoSocio Emotional Intelligence model.

EmoSocio EI Model

EmoSocio is an open access Emotional Intelligence Model, built upon a detailed comparison and synthesis of the main constructs represented in widely-accepted EI models and enriched with sociometric indexes at an individual and group level. EmoSocio is conceptualized in a semantically-enriched format in the form of an ontology. Our ambition is to provide an open access EI model that can be used by multidisciplinary scientists to evaluate psychological assessment processes and develop interventions to assist the strengthening of interpersonal and intrapersonal competencies.

How to get EmoSocio Inventories

EmoSocio inventories are available within the EmoSociograms Tool, which uses directly the imported data to generate valuable reports at individual and group level.
