I’ve posted before about Six Seconds, a not-for-profit organization providing emotional intelligence information, tools, and services. Back in October 2006 they offered their SEI Strengths Report at no charge (when it is usually $15), which I posted about here. Now for the month of July 2007, they are offering the SEI 360. From their site:

The SEI 360 is a new tool that measures “Emotional Performance” (EP) — the way your emotional intelligence is playing out in your daily life and relationships with others. While Six Seconds is conducting validation research on the tool (July ‘07), it is availabe for you to try at no cost (normally this type of assessment costs around $150).


Here’s the link to the site for more information and the opportunity to take the SEI 360.

Also from their site:

Emotional intelligence is the ability to recognize, understand, and manage feelings. It is the key competency for personal effectiveness, essential to communication, self-direction, problem-solving, and leadership.

Our research with the Six Seconds Emotional Intelligence Assessment shows emotional intelligence predicts over 50% of success in life and work.

The good news: Everyone can learn these skills.

The Six Seconds EQ Model is a simple process for developing and using emotional intelligence. There are three pursuits:

Know Yourself - become more aware of your own emotions and behaviors

Choose Yourself - manage your reactions to follow your best intentions

Give Yourself - ensure your daily choices are in line with your vision and purpose
