Study of Social Intelligence of Liberal Studies and Engineering Students
Social Intelligence is the aptness to get along well with others. It includes cognizance of situations and the social dynamics that govern them along with a grip of interactive approach and strategies that can help a person achieve his objectives in dealing with others. As social technologies are growing and organizations are becoming convinced of their power, social intelligence is taking on a broader role: informing competitive strategy. Furthermore, facets of social intelligence have been found to be related with enhanced social problem-solving skills, experienced leadership, and interpersonal expertise. Social intelligence can also serve as a foundation for, and help facilitate in the leadership effectiveness and success. This research aims to study the social intelligence of students in various dimensions and also to find out significant difference if any in their intelligence with respect to their gender and course. The social intelligence scale developed by Dr N.K. Chadha and Usha Ganeshan will be used to measure the social intelligence of 130 university students. This study focuses to understand a framework for conceptualizing the role of social intelligence and social skills in efficient leadership and management in an organisation with respect to gender and the course an individual has undertaken through the test findings and ongoing research.
