ABSTRACT

Schutte et. al., (1998) developed and validated a measure of emotional intelligence called as SSEIT. From a pool of 62 items, Schutte et. al., (1998) extracted 33 items which were proposed to be homogenous in nature. In simple words, uni-dimensionality has been identified in Schutte et. al., (1998)’s work. This study attempts to find the factor structure of SSEIT in the Indian sample. Using exploratory factor analysis, a four factor structure model of SSEIT is reported. A four factor model has been hypothesized, which is tested using confirmatory factor analysis. The model is found to be fit with the necessary indices falling within the acceptable limits.
