Abstract or Summary
  • study investigated the validity of the Perceiving Emotions branch of the Mayer-Salovey- Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test (MSCEIT). This was conducted through a correlational analysis with three previously validated measures of nonverbal communication proficiency; The Profile of Nonverbal Communication (PONS), the Diagnostic Analysis of Nonverbal Accuracy-2 (DANVA2), and the Affective Communication Test (ACT). The PONS and the DANVA2 correlated significantly with each other but neither correlated with the ACT. In line with this, the MSCEIT correlated significantly with the PONS and DANVA2 but did not correlate with the ACT. In general, the MSCEIT shows convergent validity that it is measuring the ability to perceive nonverbal emotional signals. The ACT is a paper-and-pencil assessment intended to predict an individual’s expressivity rather than perception. The lack of correlation between the ACT and the other three assessments brings into question whether the ACT measures individual differences in people’s ability to express nonverbal messages.
