Antecedents of Emotional Intelligence: An Empirical Study
Barbuto, John E., Jr.; Story, Joana S.
Journal of Leadership Education, v9 n1 p144-154 Win 2010
This study examined the relationships between emotional intelligence, locus of control, and mental boundaries. Three hundred and eighty-two county employees were sampled using a cross-sectional survey design. The results indicated internal locus of control and thin mental boundaries are positively related to emotional intelligence. A hierarchical regression revealed that internal locus of control and thin mental boundaries together explained 18% of the variance in emotional intelligence for this population. Implications and future research directions are discussed.
