ABSTRACT

The objective of the paper is to study the implications of emotional intelligence in adolescents. This is a theoretical paper, wherein patterns are drawn from the existing review of literature as well as Mayer and Salovey’s Model of Emotional Intelligence, the Bar-On Model of Emotional Intelligence, along with Goleman’s Model of Emotional Intelligence. The discussion around these theories and literature shows that higher emotional intelligence among adolescents has a positive impact on their overall development, including academics, psychological well-being, lifestyle choices, and adjustment among peers. The paper also attempts to understand emotional intelligence in adolescents in the Indian setting, and makes some suggestions to improve upon it.
