So, there are arguably many ways to define emotional intelligence, but the New York Times reported last fall that people who read fiction tend to be more able to read other people's emotional state based on visual cues.
How well can you read other people's emotions? I'm curious to see what the average score on the forum will be. Amongst my Facebook friends, it seemed to land around 26. The highest possible score is 36.
Understanding Your Score
The average score for this test is in the range of 22 to 30 correct responses. If you scored above 30, you may be quite good at understanding someone’s mental state based on facial cues. If you scored below 22, you may find it difficult to understand a person’s mental state based on their appearance.
