ABSTRACT

The objective of this study was to assess the level of emotional intelligence among adolescents. A group of 1500 adolescents, aged 15 to 17 years, from private and government schools were chosen for the study. While selecting samples, equal numbers of male and female adolescents were selected using a convenient method from an equal number of private and government schools. The Inventory for emotional intelligence by Dr. S.K. Mangal and Mrs. Shubhra Mangal was used. Statistical analysis of the data was applied for statistical analysis of the data and to find out significant differences among adolescents. Statistical analysis of the scores says there is no significant difference in the emotional intelligence level of male and female adolescents studying in private schools. The same is observed for those studying in government schools. Among male adolescents, those studying in private schools have a higher level of emotional intelligence as compared with those studying in government schools. The same trend is observed for female adolescents. It is suggested that corrective measures should be taken by schools to improve the mental health of adolescents.
