Berry College and * University of Alabama (USA)

The Emotional Intelligence Inventory (EII) was developed to measure emotional intelligence based on the model of Salovey and Mayer. Exploratory factor analyses of the initial pool of items resulted in four factors: Empathy, Utilization of Feelings, Handling Relationships, and Self-control. The present study examined the concurrent validity of the EII and the Emotional Intelligence Scale using responses of 234 college students on both inventories. The instruments were administered concurrently to students in their classes from classes randomly selected from sections representing students from all colleges, majors, and undergraduate grade levels. Correlations between the total score of the EII and the Emotional Intelligence Scale were significant. Correlations between each subscale of the EII and the Emotional Intelligence Scale were significant. Correlations calculated across gender were significant. These results indicated that the EII and the Emotional Intelligence scale have concurrent validity across gender and by gender.

Una validación del Emotional Intelligence Inventory. El Emotional Intelligence Inventory (EII) fue desarrollado para evaluar la inteligencia emocional basada en el modelo de Salovey y Mayer. El análisis factorial exploratorio del total de los ítems iniciales reveló cuatro factores: empatía, uso de los sentimientos, manejo de las relaciones y autocontrol. El presente estudio examinó la validez concurrente del EII y de la Emotional Intelligence Scale utilizando las respuestas en ambas escalas de 234 estudiantes universitarios. Los instrumentos fueron proporcionados al mismo tiempo durante el horario de clase a estudiantes escogidos aleatoriamente que representaban a estudiantes de todos los niveles universitarios, graduados y aún no graduados. Las correlaciones obtenidas entre las puntuaciones totales del EII y de la Emotional Intelligence Scale fueron significativas. Las correlaciones obtenidas entre cada subscala del EII y la Emotional Intelligence Scale fueron significativas. Las correlaciones calculadas por sexos fueron significativas. Estos resultados indicaron que la EII y la Emotional Intelligence Scale tienen validez concurrente por y entre sexos.
