About Bar-On Emotional Quotient Inventory Urdu
Bar-On Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i) was specifically developed to measure emotional intelligence of adults, which was based on Bar-On’s Emotional and Social Model (ESI) of Emotional Intelligence. It was found to be very reliable and valid measure of emotional intelligence. Bar-On EQ-i comprised of 125 statements and 5 subscales named Intrapersonal scale (38), Interpersonal scale (22), Stress management scale (17), Adaptability scale (23), General mood (16) and Positive impression scale (08).
Response format of EQ-i was “not true”, “rarely true”, “some times true”, “often true”, and “true of me” and score range was 1-5. 1 was given to “not true” and 5 to “true of me”. In the negative items, scoring was reversed. Positive impression scale (08 items) was used as validity measure of Bar-On EQ-i. Internal reliability coefficients are high for all of the subscales, ranging from .69 (Social Responsibility) to .86 (Self-Regard), with an overall average internal consistency of all EQ-i subscales was .76 and these results show very good reliability.
Test-retest reliability after one month was .85 and after four months .75 (Bar-On, 2004). For the convenience of sample, EQ-i was translated into Urdu in present study and results of pilot study reported satisfactory alpha reliability ( = .90) and internal consistency among subscales of EQ-i (Urdu translation) and this scale could be confidently used for current study
