Keywords:Emotional Intelligence, Locus of Control, Students, Correlation
AbstractThe Emotional intelligence is characterised as the facilitator of relationship experience, language, attraction, comprehension, and control that stimulates intellectual and emotional development. Many who are more mindful of their thoughts are more likely to resolve interpersonal issues. They have more decision-making ability as well. And the locus of control which is called the confidence of an entity in the force of his or her influence over his or her own life. This concept has two dimensions, internal and external aspects of control. Students ought to be emotionally intelligent in today’s competitive environment, to be high internal locus of control and but low on externality, and to have the chances of success in academic life, and these ideal characteristics have been shown to be characteristics of students who do well in studies. The aim of this study is to explore the relationship between emotional intelligence and the locus of control among students across India. The research is exploratory in nature. To identify the independent and dependent variables and to assess their relationship with each other, the descriptive correlation survey research design was adopted. A correlation is a research design, in which the researcher uses to understand the relation between the studied variables. This study finds the correlation between emotional intelligence and locus of control among students across India. For this analysis, a nonprobability convenience random sampling method was used. The primary aim of the research was to psychologically study students across India. The sample consist of 225 students including 99 men and 126 women across India within the age range of 18-30 with an average age of 24, who were randomly selected from the population. The Emotional Intelligence Scale (Emily. A. Sterret, 2000), the Locus of Control Scale (Rotter, 1966), and a personal information form provided to the samples. The sample yield a moderate level of emotional intelligence and moderate level of locus of control. The findings of this research suggest that a close association exists between emotional intelligence and the locus of control and no gender differences in emotional intelligence. In light of the associated literature, the observations were examined.
