An Investigation of Emotional Intelligence Skills of University Students in Different Departments In Terms Of Different Variables

BANU DİKMEN ADA, ASUDE BALABAN DAĞAL

Abstract


The research was conducted to determine whether the emotional intelligence skills of 1st grade and 4th grade university students differ according to the departments they are enrolled in. In this research, the 87-item Bar-On Emotional Quotient Inventory was used. The validity and reliability studies were re-performed by Tekin Acar [1]. In the “Intrapersonal”, “Interpersonal” and “Adaptability” sub-scales, a significant difference was found in favor of those who attend “Mathematics” and “Preschool Education” departments. When the “interpersonal” sub-scale was examined the results were in favor of “Environmental Engineering” department. When the “adaptability” sub-scale was analyzed it was seen that the results were again in favor of “Environmental Engineering” department. When the independent group t-test results were examined under gender variable, the significancy of “interpersonal” and “adaptability” sub-scales were in favor of male students.
