Abstract or Summary
  • The present study sought to identify the personality traits associated with emotional intelligence. Eighty three students (30 male, 53 female) ranging between 17 and 42 years of age completed the Mayer-Salovey-Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test (MSCEIT) and a personality inventory known as the California Q-Sort as part of a 10 week research experience class. Significant gender differences led to an examination of results separately within male and female subsamples. A principle components analysis supported a reduction of dvs from the original set of 100 Q-sort items to a manageable set personality domains within gender. Results revealed that emotionally intelligent females described themselves as not Socially Perceptive, Expressive, not Hard Workers, but Irresponsible. Emotionally intelligent men on the other hand described themselves as being Spontaneous Charmers, Tentative Reflective, Chronically Upbeat, Laid-Back Achievers, and Conceited. Direction for further assessment of emotional intelligence is discussed.
