B – Emotional Intelligence Glossary

Bar-On: Reuven Bar-On’s last name, which is at times spelled “BarOn” or “Bar On”. In that it is a transliteration from another language, which uses a non-Latin alphabet, the name can also be spelled “BarOn” or “Bar On” although “Bar-On” is preferred.

Bar-On conceptual and psychometric model of emotional-social intelligence: This model of emotional intelligence was developed by Reuven Bar-On and is considered to be one of the three major models of this construct according to the Encyclopedia of Applied Psychology [2004]. It stipulates that this construct is an array of interrelated emotional and social competencies, skills and facilitators that determine how well we understand and express ourselves, understand others and relate with them, and cope with daily demands, challenges and pressures. These competencies, skills and facilitators comprise 5 meta-factors and 15 sub-factors. The conceptual component of this model provides the theoretical foundation for its psychometric component, which is manifested in the various Bar-On measures of emotional-social intelligence which were designed to assess this construct.

Bar-On Emotional Quotient – 360 (EQ-360): This is a multi-rater version of the Bar-On EQ-i, which was designed to measure emotional-social intelligence based on the Bar-On model. It comprises 88 items in the form of short sentences and employs a 5-point response format. It takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and can be done online as well as in the paper-and-pencil format. This measure is used to assess individuals over 16 years of age. The EQ-360 possesses a factor structure identical to the EQ-i, which is based on the Bar-On model of emotional-social intelligence. The raters’ responses are averaged to create a total EQ score, 5 composite scale scores and 15 subscale scores.

Bar-On Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i): This is a self-report measure of emotionally and socially intelligent behavior that provides an estimate of emotional-social intelligence. The Bar-On EQ-i comprises 133 items in the form of short sentences and employs a 5-point response scale with a textual response format. It is suitable for individuals 17 years of age and older. It takes approximately 40 minutes to complete. The individual’s responses render a total EQ score as well as scores on 5 composite scales and 15 subscales that are the factorial components of the Bar-On model of emotional-social intelligence.

Bar-On Emotional Quotient Inventory Youth Version (EQ-i:YV): This is a self-report psychometric instrument designed to measure emotionally and socially intelligent behavior in children and adolescents 7 to 18 years of age. The Bar-On EQ-i:YV is based on the Bar-On conceptual model of emotional-social intelligence. This measure consists of 60 items that are distributed across the following scales: Total EQ, Intrapersonal, Interpersonal, Stress Management, Adaptability, General Mood, Positive Impression, and Inconsistency Index. Based on the large normative sample (N=9,172), 4 separate age groupings were created for males and 4 for females; these 8 different age/gender groupings are used to convert raw scores into standard scores according to the gender and age of the respondent.

Bar-On EQ-360: This is a multi-rater version of the Bar-On EQ-i, which was designed to measure emotional-social intelligence based on the Bar-On model. It comprises 88 items in the form of short sentences and employs a 5-point response format. It takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and can be done online as well as in the paper-and-pencil format. This measure is used to assess individuals over 16 years of age.

The raters’ responses are averaged to create a total EQ score, 5 composite scale scores and 15 subscale scores.

Bar-On EQ-i:YV (Bar-On Emotional Quotient Inventory: Youth Version): This is a self-report psychometric instrument designed to measure emotionally and socially intelligent behavior in children and adolescents 7 to 18 years of age. The Bar-On EQ-i:YV is based on the Bar-On conceptual model of emotional-social intelligence. This measure consists of 60 items that are distributed across the following scales: Total EQ, Intrapersonal, Interpersonal, Stress Management, Adaptability, General Mood, Positive Impression, and Inconsistency Index.

Bar-On psychometric model of emotional and social intelligence: This is the psychometric component of the model of emotional and social intelligence created by Reuven Bar-On. It is considered to be one of the three major psychometric models of emotional intelligence according to theEncyclopedia of Applied Psychology [2004]. This psychometric component was designed to assess emotional and social intelligence as conceptualized by the Bar-On model. The Bar-On EQ-iEQ-360EQ-interviewEQ-i:YV and their derivatives were developed or co-developed by Reuven Bar-On to assess emotional and social intelligence. These measures assess an array of interrelated emotional and social competencies, skills and facilitators that determine how well we understand and express ourselves, understand others and relate with them, and cope with daily demands, challenges and pressures.
