- This paper describes an exploratory attempt to establish construct validity of a test that measures emotional intelligence, Based on the existing literature, emotional intelligence is hypothesized as a multi-dimensional construct composed of five subconstructs. An instrument was developed to measure emotional intelligence. The processes of construct validation including a reliability check and a statistical analysis on the underlying dimension of the 47 items are explained. The findings confirm that emotional intelligence is a multi-dimensional construct that requires subtests to cover separate subdimension. The study also provided an empirical evidence to the argument that emotional intelligence is highly close to inter- and intra-personal intelligence, subsets of multiple intelligence.
