Most of the social, psychological and emotional problems are related to unrelieved stress. If there is stress beyond the optimal level it can hamper the functioning of the individual. Identifying unrelieved stress and being aware of its effect on our lives is not sufficient for reducing its harmful effects. Just as there are many sources of stress, there are many possibilities for its management. The present study was undertaken to find out the correlation of stress and emotional intelligence among college going girls. A sample of 300 students was taken from a college of Jaipur city. They were administered Stress scale by Puri et al. and Mangal Emotional Intelligence Inventory. The total score of emotional intelligence is negatively significantly correlated with all the factors of stress as well as overall stress score. People who are emotionally intelligent are in control of their emotions and their behavior. Hence the level of stress would be naturally less in people with high emotional intelligence.

Abstract


Most of the social, psychological and emotional problems are related to unrelieved stress. If there is stress beyond the optimal level it can hamper the functioning of the individual. Identifying unrelieved stress and being aware of its effect on our lives is not sufficient for reducing its harmful effects. Just as there are many sources of stress, there are many possibilities for its management. The present study was undertaken to find out the correlation of stress and emotional intelligence among college going girls. A sample of 300 students was taken from a college of Jaipur city. They were administered Stress scale by Puri et al. and Mangal Emotional Intelligence Inventory. The total score of emotional intelligence is negatively significantly correlated with all the factors of stress as well as overall stress score. People who are emotionally intelligent are in control of their emotions and their behavior. Hence the level of stress would be naturally less in people with high emotional intelligence.
