Emotional intelligence is one of the key components for a successful, fulfilling, and happy life. Aperson is said to be emotionally intelligent when he feels proper emotion in a proper situation and express it in a proper quantity. The present study was undertaken in Hisar district of Haryana state. Two schools of Hisar city and two Govt senior secondary schools of Kaimri from Block-I and Rawalwas from Block-II, were selected randomly. Emotional intelligence scale (EIS) developed by Hyde et al. (2001) was used to measure the emotional intelligence. A sample of 120 rural and 120 urban respondents including equal number of males and females of 14-16 year age were taken, thus to make a total sample of240 adolescents. Majority of males and females living in rural area had normal level of emotional intelligence followed by above average and below average. Similar trend was observed for urban respondents.
