Emotional Intelligence, Gender, Area of Living and Psychological Well-being among Adolescents
The present work aimed to study the influence of emotional intelligence, gender and area of living on psychological well-being of adolescents. 132 students in 11th standard of Arts and Science stream (66 males and 66 females) from different higher secondary schools in Kolhapur District (Maharashtra) participated in the present study. The age range of adolescents was 16 to 18 years. Psychological well-being scale (PWBS) (Sisodia and Choudhary, 2012) and Emotional Intelligence test (EIT) (Sharma, 2011) were received by the participants. The data were analyzed by using one-way and two-way analysis of variance. The results reveal that adolescents with low, moderate and high emotional intelligence differ significantly on psychological well-being as well as on its dimensions. Adolescents with moderate and high emotional intelligence were better on overall psychological well-being and its dimensions than the adolescents with low emotional intelligence. There is no significant difference in psychological well-being with respect to gender and area of living, but these two main variables jointly affects psychological well-being.
