Determine your Emotional Intelligence (EI)

Emotional intelligence (EI) is the capability of individuals to recognize their own emotions and those of others, discern between different feelings and label them appropriately, use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior, and manage and/or adjust emotions to adapt to environments or achieve one's goal(s).
This test is based on the 33-item scale taken from the paper by Schutte and colleagues (1998). It should take at most a couple of minutes to complete.
I estimate it would take you 69 steps in 3 minutes to Determine your Emotional Intelligence (EI).
Following there is a list with 33 statements. Please read each statement very carefully and select True (if you agree) or False (if you disagree). There are no right or wrong answers, or trick questions.
At the end, you'll get an EI score ranging from VERY LOW to VERY HIGH.
