SATUF, Cibele et al. Perceived Emotional Intelligence Assessment - The Portuguese Validation of Schutte's Emotional Intelligence Scale (SEIS-P). Aval. psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.19, n.1, pp. 18-28. ISSN 1677-0471.

The aim of this study was to expand the (perceived) emotional intelligence scientific assessment domain and to validate the Schutte Emotional Intelligence Scale (SEIS) with Portuguese speaking adults. The research sample was composed of 2,380 subjects, all Portuguese speakers, with a mean age of 34.91 years. The factorial validity analysis produced four factors, similar to the international reference studies with this scale, which explained 45.56% of the total variance. In accordance with the theoretical and instrumental background, the four factors were named: Recognition of others' emotions; Recognition and communication of one's own emotions; Management of one's own emotions and Use of emotions. The adapted instrument presented valid psychometric characteristics for the assessment of perceived emotional intelligence, suggesting that the Portuguese version of the SEIS maintains the content validity and a regular structure, when compared to previously adapted and explored versions.

Keywords : emotional intelligence; Schutte; factor analysis; statistical validation; Portuguese speaker.
