The following document is a sample COMET feedback report. This report was created using data from the COMET/EQ Emotional Competencies Test, but the COMET technology can be used to tabulate and interpret any competency test. jobEQ often creates a test specifically for a certain organization.

COMET Questionnaire - Emotional Competencies

The 50 statements you found on the Emotional Competencies questionnaire in a random order are linked to 11 categories. This report indicates your score for each category and explains what we were measuring. Research has shown that those with high emotional intelligence experienced less stress, enjoyed better health, performed better and reported a better quality of life. In other words, it's worth increasing yours. Given that this questionnaire is developed based on the book "7 Steps to Emotional Intelligence", we also indicate where to look to find additional information. Please remember that the jobEQ's primary purpose was to show what the COMET methodology is like "in practice". Therefore, this questionnaire may not be relevant to your personal situation. We recommend companies to set up their own questionnaires in function of the job requirements.

We have a standardgroup for this competence questionnaire. The standardgroup indicates how others persons answered to this questionnaire. For each competence you'll find a bar chart indicating how the reference group scored (the red zone), with your own score indicated by green. The standardgroup compares to 66% of the tested population. This means that 17% of persons will score below the reference group. These people have the lowest degree of competence. 17% will score above the reference group: these people have the highest competence. If you would score right in the middle of the red zone on the graph, your competence level is "average". Of course, the validity of the "judgement" high or low competence depends on the accuracy of the answers given.
