An attempt has been made to find out the effect of emotional intelligence and gender on the resilience of adolescents. This study adopted a 2 (adolescents with high emotional intelligence versus adolescents with low emotional intelligence) x 2 (boys versus girls) factorial design. A total number of two hundred forty college students (120 boys and 120 girls) of 11th and 12th grades were purposively sampled from six different urban colleges of Odisha. The groups of 120 boys and 120 girls are further categorized into high emotionally intelligent adolescents and low emotionally intelligent adolescents on the basis of the median split of their scores on emotional intelligence. The participants of all four groups (boys with high emotional intelligence, boys with low emotional intelligence, girls with high emotional intelligence, and girls with low emotional intelligence) were compared with respect to their resilience. The result revealed that students with high emotional intelligence have higher scores in resilience than students with low emotional intelligence. Again, resilience scores in girls are higher than those in boys.
