With new research suggesting that people who are less confident with their communication skills have lower confidence in their ability to empathize with others, one area of research is exploring how to develop better communication skills.
In an article published Monday in the journal PLOS ONE, researchers from the University of Maryland and Stanford University analyzed data collected from more than 50,000 individuals and found that those who reported less confidence in communication had lower scores on a widely used assessment called the Emotional Intelligence Scale.
The Emotional Information Processing System is a standard test developed by the National Institutes of Health and uses a variety of questions designed to assess how well people can interpret emotional cues.
The Emotional Processing System, or EIS, is a widely-used assessment for assessing people’s emotional abilities, and has been used for decades in a variety in different fields, including medicine, education, government, and healthcare.EIS scores are used to evaluate students who have taken the Emory University Adult Social Skills Test, which measures people’s ability to express emotions, explain what they feel, and understand what others are saying.
Researchers found that people with lower EIS scores tended to have lower scores in their empathy and understanding scores.
In their study, researchers analyzed the data collected for more than 100,000 adults, and found significant associations between people’s EIS score and their ability on the Emotion Intelligence Scale, a test used to assess people’s general ability to interpret emotional signals.
Specifically, the more confident people were, the lower their EIS Score.
The study, which is the first to examine the effect of EIS on people’s empathy scores, suggests that the Emotions Intelligence Scale has value for those who are more unsure about their communication ability.
“The Emotions IQ is an important tool to use when assessing emotional intelligence, especially for people who have difficulty understanding their own emotions,” said study co-author David Biederman, an assistant professor of communication studies at the University at Buffalo.
“EIS tests are an important way to measure people’s cognitive abilities and to understand how their emotions and emotions of others are processed.”
The researchers also noted that there was evidence that the higher someone’s Eis score, the greater the correlation between that person’s Emotional IQ and the degree to which they were able to understand the other person’s emotions.
For example, the EIS test has been linked to greater cognitive flexibility, as people with higher EmotionalIQ scores are able to interpret what others feel and understand their own feelings.
Biedeman noted that the study did not look at how much the Empathic Intelligence Scale correlates with the Empathy and Understanding scores on the Eis test.
However, the Emathy and Understanding tests are widely used across many different fields to assess a range of cognitive abilities, including math, reading, reading comprehension, and social skills.
The EIS is particularly useful in those areas where it is not a standard measure of a person’s ability.
The findings were also surprising, as it has been known for years that those with higher EIS levels were more likely to be diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, and to have difficulty learning new skills.
For example, people with a lower Eis were more than twice as likely as those with a higher score to have an ADHD diagnosis.
However:The Empathy scores were not associated with those diagnoses.
“What we found was that people whose scores were higher on Empathy tended to score higher on the empathy scores.
That is, people who had higher scores on Emotion IQ tended to also score higher than people with low scores on empathy,” Biedermansaid.”
This suggests that people’s Empathy is important for people to have a strong connection with other people.
This is particularly important for adults who are unsure about how they might communicate with others.”
In addition to Biedermans findings, the researchers also found that higher scores were associated with being more social, a trait linked to better cognitive flexibility.
The researchers said that in addition to improving the cognitive flexibility and social skill of people with less confidence, a positive role for empathy in helping people with more confidence in communicating with others could help people develop a better relationship with others.
“If we want to improve our empathy, we need to learn to be more communicative, which means we need empathy training,” Briederman said.
“If people have difficulty communicating, we know that we are going to be less successful as people who need help to communicate, so the next step is to get people who struggle with communication to talk to people who might be able to help them.”
