Emotional Competence in Male and Female Adolescents of Jammu and Kashmir
Emotional competence is the capability of handling one’s emotions in varied situations. Goleman (1998) defined emotional competence as set of competencies that results in outstanding performance on job. The notion that intelligence brings with it success and achievement has taken a back seat after seeing many intelligent brains fading into oblivion and people with average intelligence ruling the world. Psychologists led by Goleman (1998) are championing the research into this area as to see; what is it that can guarantee success in life? The present research examined emotional competence in male and female adolescents of Jammu and Kashmir. Results revealed a significant difference in the emotional competence of male and female adolescents.
