Emotional Expressivity Scale
A 17-item self-report measure of emotional expressiveness.
The self-report Emotional Expressivity Scale (EES) was developed and validated by Kring et al. (1994). The emotional expressiveness assessed via this scale is conceptualized as outward display of emotion in general, regardless of the content of emotion and the way it expressed (i.e., verbal or facial). Based on the general construct of emotional expressiveness, the EES aims to assess the extent of expressed emotions across diversified channels. The EES is a 17-item checklist rated by a 6-point Likert scale, with higher score indicating higher level of emotional expression.
