Influence of Emotional Competence on Well-being among Adolescents
An attempt has been made to study the influence of Emotional Competence on Well-being among Male and Female Adolescents. The present study was conducted on 100 Adolescents (Male n=50 & Female n=50) using Simple Random Sampling. Emotional Competence and Well-being was assessed by using Emotional Competence Scale developed by J. S. Fulton Paiva and Dr. M. Suresh Kumar (2009) and Well-being scale developed by Jagsharanbir Singh and Dr. Asha Gupta (2001). The scale of Well-being consists of five dimensions viz ; Physical, Mental, Social, Emotional and Spiritual Well-being. After analyzing the data by Simple Linear Regression, the first finding showed the Emotional Competence appeared as a significant predictor of overall Well-being among Male Adolescents. It implies that there is a significant positive correlation between Emotional Competence and Overall Well-being among Male Adolescents. The second finding indicates that Emotional competence appeared as significant factor of Mental, Social, Emotional and Spiritual Well-being but not as factor of Physical Well-being. The third finding showed that Emotional Competence also appeared as a significant predictor overall Well-being among Female Adolescents. . It implies that there is a significant positive correlation between Emotional Competence and Overall Well-being among Female Adolescents. The last finding reveals that Emotional Competence significantly influences the degree of Physical and Emotional Well-being but doesn‟t influence the degree of Mental, Social and Spiritual Well-being. Well-being is a leading issue for every Individual, if Emotional Competence leads towards better Well-being among Individuals, let them express their inner feelings without any suppression.
