Emotional has become a rather popular concept in both management practice and literature in recent years. Whereas emotions were once considered irrelevant or inappropriate for the workplace, they are now utilised by the shrewdest managers to make decisions about people.

Emotional Intelligence allows you to understand the emotional drives of others, and also hone your communication style to individuals, thus giving you superior ‘people skills’.

However whilst many organisations consider Emotional Intelligence as one of the core competencies of high performers, the industry has so far lacked practical, scientifically based models of increasing your Emotional Intelligence.

Some organisations are using well-known methods of personality profiling , however some of these methods lack scientific validity, and others are impractical for the workplace.

In this paper we will provide you with a history of Emotional Intelligence, as well as:

  • A review of the current methods of personality profiling such as NLP, DISC, Myers-Briggs and the Keirsey Temperament sorter
  • A brief history of personality theories and behaviourism
  • The personality psychology renaissance – including genetics and the Five-Factor model

We will also introduce to you a scientifically based and practical model of human temperament that can be used to increase your EQ: The Humm-Wadsworth Model of Temperament.

The framework described in this White Paper is not based on ‘pop psychology’ or 2-4-6 or 8 box ‘personality type’ matrix approach, but on a psychological framework used by the professional industrial psychologist in assessing personality. It recognises that in any given situation, people behave according to their motivations, feelings, attitudes and drives, rather than on logic alone.

The framework gives you the tools to understand human nature so you can improve your people skills and foster more productive relationships with others.
