Effect of Gender and GPA on Emotional Intelligence.
Sutarso, Toto; And Others
The effect of gender and grade point average (GPA) on emotional intelligence (EQ) was studied using the Emotional Intelligence Inventory. The inventory was completed by 138 college students, and data were analyzed using a multivariate factorial model with three factors of EQ as dependent variables (compassion, self-awareness, and attunement) and two independent variables, gender and GPA. Multivariate analysis of variance was performed using the Statistical Analysis System. Data show an overall significant multivariate effect of gender on three factors of EQ. Female students had higher scores on the compassion and self-awareness factors than male counterparts. However, there was no significant gender difference on the attunement factor. There was no overall significant multivariate GPA effect on the three factors of EQ. (Contains 2 tables and 19 references.) (SLD)
