The aim of the research was to check the effect of Big Five Personality Traits on Emotional Intelligence on males and females among College Students. In the study it included 100 participants (N=100) who were grouped into 50 M and 50 F according to their age range 18-22 respectively. They were asked to complete the self-report measures of NEO Five- Factor Inventory (NEO –FFI) and Schutte Self-Report Emotional Intelligence Test (SSEIT).  The findings indicated that there is no correlation between Emotional Intelligence and Neuroticism, Openness to Experience and Agreeableness but significant positive correlation is there in Extraversion and Conscientiousness among males, although in females no correlation was proved between Emotional Intelligence and Neuroticism, Openness to Experience and significant positive correlation in Extraversion, Agreeableness and Conscientiousness. The findings also reported that except Conscientiousness there is no significant difference between Neuroticism, Openness to Experience, Extraversion, Agreeableness and Emotional Intelligence among Male and Female college students. Implications and limitations of the study are also discussed.
