The Tromsø Social Intelligence Scale (TSIS) is a self-report measure that assesses social intelligence in a multidimensional perspective, considering three principal components: cognitive (social information processing), behavioural (social skills) and emotional (social awareness). In the present paper the Italian version of the scale, adapted for both adults and adolescents, is presented. Our analyses revealed the same factorial structure of the original scale and showed a good internal reliability. Moreover, the items of the TSIS were reasonably unbiased in terms of social desirability response bias.
