|Title:||A meta-analytic investigation of the relationship between emotional intelligence and health||Contributor(s):||Schutte, Nicola (author) ; Malouff, John Michael (author); Thorsteinsson, Einar Baldvin (author) ; Bhullar, Navjot (author) ; Rooke, Sally Erin (author)||Publication Date:||2007||DOI:||10.1016/j.paid.2006.09.003||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/3222||Abstract:||A meta-analysis of 44 effect sizes based on the responses of 7898 participants found that higher emotional intelligence was associated with better health. Emotional intelligence had a weighted average association of r = .29 with mental health, r = .31 with psychosomatic health, and r = .22 with physical health. Emotional intelligence measured as a trait was more strongly associated with mental health than emotional intelligence measured as an ability. Comparison of three measures of perceived trait emotional intelligence, the EQ-i (Bar-On, 2000), the Assessing Emotions Scale (Schutte et al., 1998), and the Trait Meta Mood Scale (Salovey, Mayer, Goldman, Turvey, & Palfai, 1995), showed that the EQ-i had a significantly stronger association with mental health than the other measures. The findings provide a basis for research aimed at determining the causal relationship between trait emotional intelligence and health.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Personality and Individual Differences, 42(6), p. 921-933||Publisher:||Elsevier||Place of Publication:||London, UK||ISSN:||0191-8869||Field of Research (FOR):||170109 Personality, Abilities and Assessment||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||920408 Health Status (e.g. Indicators of Well-Being)||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 558
