The results of psychometric testing of the new method for measuring emotional intelligence as an ability – a test of emotional intelligence (TEI-method), based on the model of emotional intelligence by J.Mayer, P.Salovey and D.Caruso and psychoevolutionary theory of emotions of R.Plutchik are presented. When developing the TEI-method, the problems arising from the adaptation and standardization of the MSCEIT methodology were taken into account. Compared to the MSCEIT methodology, the TEI methodology is one more section. This section (9a, b) is aimed at measuring abilities in the field of emotional intelligence along two branches at once: identification of emotions and understanding of emotions, which allows assessing the understanding of the dynamics of changes in emotional states in an interaction situation. In sections relating to the identification of emotions ("Faces" and "Images") were created their own, original stimulus material. The changes made to the methodology eliminate the problems that have arisen in the process of adaptation and standardization of the Russian-language version of the MSCEIT prototype methodology. 1007 people aged 20 to 72 years took part in the testing of the TEI-method. Indicators of normal distribution, structural and theoretical validity, and reliability are described. The factor analysis, both exploratory and confirmator, allows us to say that the theoretical structure of the TEI methodology, which distinguishes 4 branches of emotional intelligence, corresponds to the theoretical model on the basis of which the test was built. At the same time, however, the domain of strategic intelligence is described worse by using factor models compared to the domain of experienced emotional intelligence. The results of the psychometric testing of the TEI methodology allow us to conclude that the validity and reliability of the TEI methodology as a psycho-diagnostic tool permit us to measure the current level of development of emotional intelligence.

Keywords: emotional intelligence, emotions, ability, test, structural validity, reliability, psychometric testing
