The purpose of this study is to develop the emotional intelligence inventory (EII). Pretest scores were obtained from 945 subjects among general high school, industrial high school and business high school students in Taiwan. Data analysis methods, based on methodologies reviewed from relevant literature, include statistical instruments for content validity, plus exploratory factor analysis, Pearson correlation, an independent t-test and reliability analysis measures. The EII is comprised of six factors: Firstly, facilitating thought is the ability to perceive emotions for thinking, choosing, planning, solving problems, inspiring, and to increasing self maturity. Secondly, emotional management is the ability to use strategies for improving emotional intensity – diminishing negative emotion or maintaining positive emotions. Thirdly, emotional perception is the ability to identify and understand others’ emotions and the true feelings, perceiving of possible emotional status to make correct decisions. Fourthly, emotional awareness is the ability to be open to feelings, understand the truth behind those feelings, and awareness of others’ emotions. Fifth, emotional concern can praise others’ achievements actively and comfort friends’ when experiencing loss .On the other hand, sharing personal happiness and sadness with others is also included. Lastly, emotional control involves regulating personal impulse when facing interpersonal conflict and anger. The coefficients of Cronbach’s alpha were from .69 to .83 for the six factors and .89 in the EII. These factors could be explained from 53.8 % of the total variance.
