Lumina Emotion

The ability to choose our response to a situation is a powerful one - Lumina Emotion gives people that ability. Improved emotional intelligence, adaptability and resilience are just some of the benefits which organisations report.

What Is It For?

Lumina Emotion teaches us how to manage our personality effectively to suit changing contextual demands, whatever our natural qualities may be.

Lumina Emotion was created by psychologists Dr Stewart Desson and Julie Ensor (MSc) and is derived from Dr Desson's PhD research.

Lumina Emotion uses the Big5 model of personality to demonstrate that personality qualities actually underpin the majority of traditional emotional competencies. Lumina Emotion takes a holistic and balanced view, recognising that all traits can be helpful and effective in their own way. For example, both introversion and extraversion can contribute to emotional intelligence in different contexts, whereas many traditional models suggest extraversion is more important.

Lumina Emotion reveals three emotional personas - Underlying, Everyday and Overextended - and shows how socially desirable traits that are often perceived as key to emotional intelligence when overplayed can work against it. Equally, our research provides evidence that underrated traits that traditional EQ models typically do not see as driving emotional intelligence can, in fact, become sources of emotional strength. Lumina Emotion's innovative approach is fully compatible with Lumina Spark and they can be used separately or together.
