ABSTRACT

The present normative survey was aimed to study the differential effect of selected demographic factors on the social intelligence of secondary school teachers. The Social Intelligence Test for Teachers, developed by the investigators, was administered along with a personal data sheet on a sample of 236 teachers, selected on a stratified random basis, from Ernakulam district of Kerala. The data, thus collected, were subjected to statistical analysis(t-test and One-way ANOVA) by keeping the objectives and hypotheses in mind. The study revealed a differential effect of gender on social intelligence, wherein the male teachers excel female teachers. Educational qualification, however, was found to have no significant effect in discriminating the secondary school teachers on the basis of their social intelligence. The trained graduate and trained postgraduate teachers are alike with regard to their social intelligence. Demographic factors like the type of school management and length of service experience were found to be decisive factors in the social intelligence of secondary school teachers.
