A Validation of the Emotional Intelligence Inventory.
Tapia, Martha; Marsh, George E., II
This study examined the concurrent validity of the Emotional Intelligence Inventory (M. Tapia, 2001) and the Emotional Intelligence Scale (N. Schutte and others, 1998). The responses to the inventories of 234 college students, 84 males and 250 females, were analyzed. Correlations between the total score on the two scales were significant. Correlations between each subscale of the Emotional Intelligence Inventory and the Emotional Intelligence Scale were significant. Correlations were calculated across gender, and all correlations were significant. These results indicate that the Emotional Intelligence Inventory and the Emotional Intelligence Scale have concurrent validity across gender and by gender. (Contains 2 tables and 11 references.)
