Nurturing individual performance by harnessing emotional intelligence
The Emotional Judgment Inventory™ (EJI) is a robust measure of emotional intelligence that can help boost business performance in the areas of leadership, influencing, negotiation and resilience.
Emotional intelligence has strong links to positive business results. Human beings are social creatures, and our environment is inundated with factual but also emotional information. This information influences our task performance, judgments, memory and problem-solving strategies – all of which are indispensible in a work setting. Some experts argue that emotional intelligence could be more important than IQ in determining a person’s professional success.
The EJI – key features
- Builds on the most well respected model of emotional intelligence, by Salovey & Mayer
- Measures seven key aspects of emotional intelligence, showing how well respondents identify and manage their own and others’ emotions, and how well they can adapt and problem-solve using emotional information
- Includes an impression management scale that detects faking or distortion
- Offers a report for practitioners describing the instrument’s findings, proving a solid and objective basis for further interpretation
EJI – a powerful tool in management, sales, coaching and personal development
- Boosts business performance by helping key people operate at their most effective level
- Helps leaders connect with employees, to inspire, motivate, and get buy-in to a wider strategy
- Helps interpret and influence the emotions of others, enabling leaders and salespeople to be more persuasive
- Enhances individual capability by helping people manage their own and others emotions more effectively
- Builds resilience by helping employees cope with environmental demands and pressures
- Gets to grips with deep drivers of behaviour that cannot be explained by other cognitive measures, taking coaching and counselling to a new level
How do I buy the EJI?
In order to maintain rigorous standards of quality in the field of personality assessment, access to the EJI is restricted to:

You must also purchase the EJI Manual. OPP offers an EJI webinar (which includes a copy of the manual) to support the understanding and application of this tool.
The Emotional Judgment Inventory is a useful addition to my test battery. Its assessment of emotional sensitivity, management, and expression offer particularly helpful insights about leadership and sales candidates. I can closely examine important characteristics that general personality inventories only measure indirectly.”
