Abstract/Description: The purpose of this study was to contribute to the understanding of emotional intelligence as it occurs in children and adolescents by investigating the psychometric properties (i.e. validity) of the Emotional Quotient Inventory: Youth Version (EQ-i: YV). The validation of this instrument involved considering its relationship to cognitive intelligence, self-report of personality, and parent-report of behavior. A battery of tests that included a measure of intellectual functioning, an omnibus personality test, a measure of childhood behavior problems, and the EQ-i: YV was administered to a sample of 143 children ranging in age from 8 to 18 years. A small positive relationship was found to exist between Full Scale IQ and the broadband measure of emotional intelligence. Many significant relationships were obtained between the subtests of the EQ-i: YV and the omnibus personality test, suggesting a high degree of relationship. Significant correlations were evidenced among the scales of the EQ-i: YV and the measure of childhood behavior problems, but to a much lesser extent than with personality. The EQ-i: YV demonstrated the abilityt to predict significantly elevated scores on a broadband measure of emotional difficulties. Lastly, aspects of personality were found to contribute more heavily to the prediction of overall emotional intelligence than did cognitive intellectual functioning.
