BUENO, José Maurício Haas. Construction and validation of na instrument for emotional regulation assessment. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2013, vol.4, n.2, pp. 186-200. ISSN 2236-6407.

Considering the lack of an instrument for assessing emotional intelligence (EI) related skills in the Brazilian market and the relationships that emotional regulation (one of the skills related to IE) has shown with external criteria, this work proposes the construction and investigation of the psychometric properties of an instrument for emotional regulation assessment. To this end, an instrument was constructed based on Emotional Stroop task, using words and pictures as emotional stimuli and color naming as cognitive task. This instrument was administered to 207 adults, of both sexes. A factor analysis revealed two factors that were structured according to the type of emotional stimuli (pictures and words), but these factors showed a standard of neutral correlations with personality traits and abstract reasoning. These results were discussed in light of previous research and ways were appointed to continuing the development of the instrument.
