In a sample of military instructors (N=79) a rather high internal consistency and reliability of verbal tasks of the technique while using secondary indices that integrate estimation of choice acceptability were established. The connection between increase of the scores of emotional intelligence scales (EmIn: emotions management and control of other people emotions) and larger deviations of mean group value of outcomes acceptability was found. Diagnostic aspect of EAT is determined by the possibility to identify a level of balance in making multiple choice decisions: the usage of emotional information and coping with ambiguity.
