dc.description.abstractEmotional intelligence refers to individual differences in the ability to monitor one’s own and others’ feelings and emotions, to discriminate them and to use this information to guide one’s thinking and actions. These differences have been shown to have a significant effect on life outcomes such as mental health, social relationships and work performance. In this paper the relationship between emotional intelligence, as measured by the Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire Short Form (TEIQue-SF), and belief in personal control, as measured by the Belief in Personal Control Scale (BPCS), were examined in a sample of undergraduate psychology students (N = 94). In line with previous research emotional intelligence was found to be positively correlated with a belief in internal personal control. Gender differences were found with females scoring higher in emotional intelligence than males. Implications and future research directions are discussed.
