Summary/Abstract: Conceptualization and operationalization of social intelligence is related to discussions, which is connected to several areas of issues. In the article we present the results of an analysis of the extracted factor structure of the original MESI methodology which represents the psychometric approach to the investigation and measurement of social intelligence. The results of the research, which was carried out on the sample of 2135 respondents enabled to extract the structure factors of the MESI methodology (manipulation, empathy and social irritability). These factors explain 47% of variance. Other psychometric parameters of the MESI methodology, as well as the complete version of MESI methodology, are described in the article. The paper also presents a comparison of the preferences of the individual factors of social intelligence.
