Emotional Intelligence and Perceived Stress among Working and Non- working Young Adults
The aim of study was to find the relationship between emotional intelligence (EI) and perceived stress (PS) among working and non- working young adults. The study consisted a sample of 170 young adults, (85 working young adults and 85 non-working young adults). The tool which was used to assess emotional intelligence (EI) was Emotional Intelligence Self-Assessment Tool (Emily A Sterrett,2000) and for perceived stress (PS), Perceived Stress Scale (Sheldon C, Tom K and Robin Mermelstein,1983). The results indicated that there is no significant relationship between emotional intelligence and perceived stress. The findings of the study also showed that emotional intelligence high for working young adults and perceived stress is high for non-working young adults.
