Cognisess – Global Cognitive Empathy Study launched

The Global Cognitive Empathy Study (GCES) is a cross-cultural research project; it aims to better understand which cognitive and emotional (intelligence) skills are universal and key to things like leadership, organisational style and relationships. From the data collected we hope to shed more light than ever before, on the similarities and differences in human cognition & emotional intelligence across continents, cultures and demographics.


Based in the USA, Emotionwise is headed up by world-renowned social psychologist Professor Dacher Keltner, doctoral candidate Daniel Cordaro, and over a dozen other talented researchers from University of California, Berkeley. Emotionwise has developed the first scientifically validated expressional intelligence assessment tool backed by over two decades of facial expression and vocalization coding research.
