The present study reports the extent of relationship between emotional intelligence and burnout among teacher educators working in University of Mysore and Bangalore University. A total of 400 teacher educators working in urban and rural areas were selected for the present study. They were administered Emotional Intelligence test (Mangal & Mangal, 2012) and Burn out Inventory (Misra, 2012) in one setting. The data analysis was done through Pearson’s product moment correlation and stepwise multiple regression. Results revealed that Intrapersonal awareness component of EI was significantly and negatively related to depersonalization, emotional exhaustion, friction, task avoidance and total burnout scores. Significant and negative relationships were observed between interpersonal awareness and depersonalization, emotional exhaustion, task avoidance, neglecting and total burnout scores. Intrapersonal management of EI was significantly and negatively related to depersonalization, emotional exhaustion, task avoidance, and total burnout scores. Total emotional intelligence scores were significantly and negatively related to depersonalization, emotional exhaustion, friction, task avoidance, distancing, neglecting and total burnout scores. Finally stepwise multiple regression analysis revealed that out of 4 areas of emotional intelligence, only 2 areas best predicted burnout; they are Intrapersonal Awareness and Interpersonal Awareness and predicted to an extent of 6.5%.
