There are many different views of social intelligence and that is one reason for the difficulty of its explanation and research. We have selected several interpersonal situations divided into two types: 'A' respondents were active, and 'B' respondents were responding to the situation. We have designed the pen-and-pencil method to measure cognitive, emotional, and conative aspects of respondents' behavior. The research sample consisted of 103 university students. Comparing social intelligence measured through solving interpersonal situations with some of interpersonal traits, self-image, and social intelligence measured by other methods confirmed some of our hypotheses.
