Thomas Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire (TEIQue)

Will your new IT recruit need to manage others or build relationships as a fundamental part of their role? If so, the Thomas Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire (TEIQue) is an excellent tool to use when hiring. This personality assessment gives you an insight into the candidate’s ability to interact with others and manage themselves on an emotional level.  

How Does This Assessment Work?

The Thomas TEIQue takes around 20 minutes for the candidate to complete. During this time, they will be shown 153 individual statements. For example, the statement could be ‘I am able to recognise when somebody is upset”. They will then have to select how much they agree or disagree with this particular statement. 

There are no right or wrong answers. When the candidate has completed the Thomas TEIQue assessment, you will be provided with a report which looks at their emotional intelligence across 15 facets, split into 5 different categories.
