Abstract

The present research is an empirical effort made to explore the relationship between age and Emotional Intelligence in Indian context. The sample-size of this study is 500. The respondents are teachers (200), Nurses (150) and the Information Technology (IT) professionals (150). The stratified random sampling method is adopted. The age of the respondents ranges from 22 to 56 (M= 31.89). The research is executed with non-clinical samples. The statistical tools adopted are: Emotional Intelligence scale (Hyde, A., Pethe, S., & Dhar, U. (2002), and the Personal Information Schedule designed by the research investigator. The participants are contacted individually by the researcher and data is obtained with the help of the selected tools. The descriptive statistics and correlations are used for the statistical analyses Results indicate that the obtained P-value 0.707 is statistically not significant. This signifies that the emotional intelligence of adults do not differ on the basis of their given age. But age is negatively correlated, and it is statistically significant with all the dimensions of emotional intelligence at the 0.01 level of significance except on managing relations. This finding supports the understanding of emotional intelligence and the development of effective strategies in counselling and psychotherapy.
