Descriptive statistics of the indicators of the method

Regulatory data for the EIT methodology were collected on the basis of large Russian corporations. The study involved 1007 people aged 20 to 72 years (487 men and 520 women, average age of 35.9 years). Summary data on the sex and age of the respondents are presented in Table 2.9.

Table 2.10 presents data on average values, standard deviations, standard errors of the mean, and asymmetry of the average score for all indicators of the methodology, as well as the results of checking the distribution of points for normality by the Shapiro-Wilks criterion. The check for normality showed a significant deviation from the normal distribution on all scales, which is

Reliability assessment of the EIT methodology

The results of the reliability assessment for all primary and summary test scales using the Cronbach coefficient are given in Table 2.11.

As can be seen from Table 2.11, relatively high-reliability indicators of the EIT methodology were obtained for the sections and branches of the “Experiential Domain,” as well as for the general level of El. However, in the Strategic Domain and its branches and sections, in particular, in the Understanding Emotions branch and the Changes, Mixing, and Dynamics sections, reliability indicators were reduced. Nevertheless, the decrease in reliability for individual test terms: sections, branches, and domain, does not affect the degree of reliability of the overall indicator of the level of El.
