The main objective of the present study is to examine the Emotional Quotient (sensitivity, conscientiousness, empathy and adaptability) among ectomorphic and endomorphic personality women. A sample of 30 participants (15 ectomorphy personality & 15 Endomorphic personality types) was drawn randomly from the population. Emotional quotient scale by Prof. N. K. Chadha was used for data collection. Data was collected by a face to face interview method. Mean, standard deviation and‘t’ test were the statistics calculated. The results indicate that there is no significant difference between ectomorphic and endomorphic women in relation to sensitivity, conscientiousness, empathy and adaptability. Results revealed that ectomorphic women have higher sensitivity, empathy and adaptability. On the other hand, the endomorphic women have higher conscientiousness.
