Background of E-Test
The “E” test is just one of the many used by social scientists in measuring a person’s ability to understand other people’s perspective. A group of American social scientists, led by Adam Galinsky at the Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, used the “E” test, along with other techniques to study the link between empathy and power. It was found that people who are in the position of power share a common way of writing the “E” distinguishable from that of followers.
