Psychometric properties of the Italian version of the Self-Report Emotional Intelligence Test (SREIT)
Emotional Intelligence is a multidimensional construct that links emotion and cognition with the aim of improving human interactions. It is related to numerous aspects of individual behavior, clinical illness, human and social interactions, working behavior and team working. The aim of this study was to investigate the psychometric properties of the Italian version of the Self-Report Emotional Intelligence (SREIT) by using a sample of 486 Italian adults. We carried out a confirmatory factor analysis and a reliability analysis. The results supported a one-dimensional factor structure of the SREIT. The validity of the SREIT was confirmed by its negative correlations with TAS-20 (Toronto Alexithymia Scale-20 items).Back
