Reuven Bar-On

The Website provides information on the Bar-On model of emotional and social intelligence as well as other  conceptual and psychometric models developed by Dr. Reuven Bar-On.

Welcome to my website, which I have created in order to tell you about myself and describe my model of emotional and social intelligence as well as additional models I have developed and am currently developing. I describe how these models were created and how they can be used at home, school, work and in healthcare. One of the primary reasons for doing this is that I have come across, from time to time, inaccurate descriptions of me and my work. Additionally, I have received numerous requests for information about these models.

An additional reason for creating this website is to provide information about the Multifactor Model of Performance, which represents the next big paradigm shift in psychology in my opinion. This goes beyond the paradigm shift ushered in by emotional intelligence; and it will have greater implications for parenting and raising the next generation, education and academic performance, occupational performance and leadership, and healthcare.

This website is intended for students, researchers and practitioners who are interested in learning more about and enhancing human behavior, performance and well-being, and for those who are searching for more meaning in life.

This website contains information on a wide range of topics including:

  • Considerations regarding the conceptualization and measurement of EI
  • The theoretical foundations, background and development of the Bar-On EI model
  • Development and validation of the Bar-On EQ-i™ and derivative measures
  • What it means to be emotionally and socially intelligent according to the Bar-On model of emotional-social intelligence
  • A description of a number of additional concepts closely-associated with EI, and how they are measured and applied
  • Bar-On’s Multifactor Model of Performance: The next big paradigm shift beyond EI

Test your current level of performance with the MMP3™, and learn what to improve in order to be more successful in life!

What is the MMP3™?

The MMP3™ (Multifactor Measure of Performance – version 3.0™) is an innovative way to evaluate how well you are currently performing in various different areas. Based on this self-assessment, the self-development component of this interactive assessment-development program then provides valuable feedback together with suggestions to help you perform on an even higher level.

The MMP3™ was created by Dr. Reuven Bar-On, the person who created the EQ-i™, which has become the gold standard in measuring emotional intelligence. However, the MMP3™ is not a test of emotional intelligence and goes beyond EQ-assessment. It is, by far, Bar-On’s best innovation in performance assessment and development yet!

How does it work?

You are asked to respond to 142 brief questions, which typically takes about half an hour. Your responses are automatically scored, and a summary of the results is created and emailed to you. The summary contains an in-depth analysis that maps your strengths as well as those areas that can be enhanced in order to improve your performance.

The MMP3  is based on research that has been carried out worldwide. A number of other research projects are presently being carried out.

How much does it cost?

It costs $30 (US) to complete the MMP3 online and receive a personal summary of your results together with suggestions to enhance your performance to be more successful in what you do.

How do I begin?

Soon you will be able to test the extent to which you have found meaning in your life with the MLI™ (Meaningful Living Inventory). This is a derivative of the MMP3™ and will be available in the near future. Finding meaning in what you do impacts the degree to which you are engaged and motivated to do what you enjoy doing as well as your performance and overall well-being.


In addition to nearly 50 other publications on EI authored or co-authored by me, below are two books on emotional-social intelligence that I have co-edited:
