The Role of Emotional Intelligence in Coping with Stress among Youth
Abstract: Todays young people deal with Stress and pressure each day. Those who lack the skills to deal with these Stresses have a higher chance of acting out due to a lack of mental well-being. Having Emotional Intelligence skills affects both their outlook and attitude. It can also help get rid of anxiety, help them deal with mood swings and avoid depression. Adolescents who are academically brilliant may sometimes be socially and interpersonally inept. Despite possessing a high IQ, success may not automatically follow. High Emotional Intelligence will definitely help an adolescent to reduce Stress by decreasing conflict, improving relationships and understanding. This study aims to explore the link between emotional intelligence and the ability to cope with stress. Emotional Intelligence Scale by Prof. Roquiya Zainuddin and Anjum Ahmed and Stress Scale (International Stress Management Association, UK. ) was used. Results indicate that males were more Emotionally Intelligent than females. The results also point out that there is no significant difference in the level of stress experienced by males and females and that there is a positive correlation between emotional intelligence and the ability to cope with stress. The results also reveal that there is no significant difference in the Emotional Intelligence and the stress experienced across different religions.
