Sažetak
Emotional intelligence is commonly defined as the set of abilities to process emotion-laden information competently. The most comprehensive definition of emotional intelligence is one that defines EI as a four-level set of abilities, as follows: Emotional intelligence involves the ability to perceive accurately, appraise, and express emotion ; the ability to access and/or generate feelings when they facilitate thought ; the ability to understand emotions and emotional knowledge ; and the ability to regulate emotions to promote emotional and intellectual growth (Mayer & Salovey, 1997, p. 5). The aim of a series of studies were to find out the adaptive role of trait emotional intelligence, and its relationship with positive outcomes in life. Using Mayer & Salovey model of emotional intelligence emotional skills and competence questionnaire (ESCQ ; Taksic, 2001) was constructed. It is a self-reported scale that measure so-called trait emotional intelligence. Appropriate psychometric properties of ESCQ were obtained in several studies. The factor-analytic studies revealed three latent dimensions: a) perceiving and understanding emotion, b)expressing and labeling emotion, and c) managing and regulating emotion. The structure closely resembles the factor structure reported in studies using different types of scales within the same model of emotional intelligence (Mayer, Salovey & Caruso, 2001 ; 2003). Besides of ESCQ several instruments dealing with constructs as empathy, life satisfaction, social skills, quality of leadership, ego-resiliency, stress-perception, and quality of family interaction were applied. The results demonstrated that emotional intelligence has a significantly positive role in many important aspects of human functioning such as: sensitivity for others and one’ s own emotions, emotional self-concept, coping with stress, maintaining positive mood, and openness. In regards to prognostic validity of emotional intelligence and competence, the strongest observed relationship was with the quality of leadership, and life satisfaction. In conclusion it could be said that one measure of trait emotional intelligence showed significant relationship with many positive outcomes, especially with life satisfaction as main criterion for emotional intelligence. The relationship of trait emotional intelligence and life satisfaction remains significant even after controlling of effects of some personality traits and social skills.
