The test has been standardized for the population all over the world and has been proved to possess satisfactory psychometric qualities (reliability and validity).
The results of the standardization process were presented in the first international conference "Emotions & Interpersonal Skills at Work"(Salonica, June 2005) and in the 10th International Conference for Psychology, organized by the Greek Psychological Association (Ioannina, December 2005) concentrating flattering comments from both the European and the the worldwide scientific community.
The results of the standardization process are already under publication in an accredited international scientific magazine.

Statistical information of the test GalaEmo for the measurement of emotional intelligence.
The test has been standardized using a sample of 741 professional of various professional fields allover Greece and the World.
The test possesses good psychometric qualities.
More specifically, the internal consistency reliability (or alternatively known as the Kuder-Richardson formula) of the scale is:
Cronbach a = 0,8979
Guttman Split - half = 0, 8378
Equal Length Spearman Brown = 0, 8448
The reliability of the sub-scales is also satisfactory.
The mean score of the sample was = 567, 30/875 and the standard deviation SD= 47,69.
Accordingly, the mean scores and standard deviations for the subscales are as follows:
- For the subscale of Self-consciousness(Subscale 1): = 119,51/175 SD = 14,51
- For the subscale of Self-regulation[/Self-control](Subscale 2): = 109,75/175 SD = 13,11
- For the subscale of Motives of behaviour (Subscale 3): = 112,51/175 SD = 10,23
- For the subscale of Empathy (Subscale 4): = 114,03/175 SD = 11,78
- And for the subscale of Social skills (Subscale 5): = 111,51/175 SD = 12,70.
Finally, the scale has satisfactory face validity, as it has been designed according to Goleman's theory (1995) and high criterion validity (r= 0,85 ** , statistically significant at the 0,01 level) using a specific self-evaluated item as criterion.
At the moment a validity analysis is conducted using the original scale of Petrides & Furnham (2001, 2003) as a criterion.
