The paper deals with age and gender differences in
emotional intelligence (EI) during early adolescence and
examines relationships among different branches of EI and
measures of adaptive behavior. Three EI tests, as well as
empathy and self-esteem questionnaires were applied in a
sample of 133 higher-grade elementary school students.
Students' school grades were also collected. Low to
moderate correlations were found among EI measures.
Empathy scores significantly correlated only with the Emotion
Management Test scores. Multivariate analysis of variance
showed gender differences in the set of EI variables with girls
scoring higher on the examined branches of EI. Neither age
nor gender by age interaction effects were proved by
MANOVA. Hierarchical regression procedures proved an
incremental contribution of the Emotional Analysis Test in
explaining the variability of Emotion Management Test
scores, and a significant role of these two tests in explaining
students' school achievement.
