How the EQ test works

The basic methodology

The basic idea of the test is to put you in everyday situations and assess how you would react. It's important to note that by the end of the test, not all the questions will be taken into account. If you answer then questions one particular way and one question in a different way then the we tend to look at the general trend rather than single outliers.

Please note that this page reveals the questions within the EQ test so it's best that you take the test first. After completing the test you may want to read this to see how we look at some of the questions.
