Emotional Intelligence: The Effect of Gender, GPA, and Ethnicity.
Tapia, Martha; Marsh, George E., II
The effects of gender, grade point average (GPA), and ethnicity on emotional intelligence were examined using an inventory called the Emotional Intelligence Inventory Revised (M. Tapia and J. Burry-Stock, 1998) in this study. The inventory was completed by 319 students (162 boys, 157 girls) at a college preparatory bilingual school in Mexico City, and data were analyzed using a multivariate factorial model with 4 factors of Emotional Intelligence as dependent variables (empathy, utilization of feelings, handling relationships, and self-control). There was an overall significant main effect of gender and a significant two-way interaction of gender-GPA. The gender-GPA interaction was disordinal, and therefore the significant main effect was not further analyzed. The interaction was found to be significant for handling relationships and self-control. In handling relationships, GPA levels influenced male students. Male students in the 3.00 to 3.49 range scored lower than all other male students with GPAs greater than 2.00. In self-control, GPA levels influenced female students. Female students with a GPA of 3.5 to 4.0 scored significantly higher than all other female students with GPAs below 3.00.
