BUENO, José Maurício Haas et al. Emotional competences: study of the validity of a measurement instrument. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.14, n.1, pp. 153-163. ISSN 1677-0471.

This work aimed at the construction and evaluation of the psychometric properties of an Emotional Competence Inventory (ECI). The 76 items of the instrument were constructed to represent four skills related to emotional intelligence: emotional perception, the usage of emotion to facilitating thought, emotional understanding and emotional regulation. The instrument was administered to 409 Brazilian adults, predominantly female (76.5%), with a mean age of 30.2 (SD=11.5), who answered via a five-point Likert scale. An exploratory factor analysis revealed a structure with five factors: emotional perception, regulation of low potency emotions, emotional expressivity, emotional regulation in other people and regulation of high potency emotion. Furthermore, it was observed a pattern of positive and significant correlations with many aspects of quality of life. It was concluded that the instrument has favorable psychometric conditions to recommend its use in research
