BAYRAKTAR, O., ŞENCAN, H., & FİDAN, Y. (2018). IMPACT OF THE TRAIT- BASED EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE ON SELF-ESTEEM FACTOR ACCORDING TO GENDER FACTOR. Business & Management Studies: An International Journal, 6(2), 361–389. https://doi.org/10.15295/bmij.v6i2.251


Goal. In the research, it was tried to determine the effect of the trait-based emotional intelligence scores on self-esteem evaluations, and it was attempted to determine how this effect evolved according to the gender factor. Method. In the study 175 students were partisipte and 171 questionnary were analyzed. To measure emotional intelligence, NHS Emotional Intelligence Scale was used and The Rosenberg Self-Esteem scale was used to measure self-esteem. Correlations, regression analysis, t-test and ANCOVA methods were used to determine the relationship and / or effect between two conceptual structures. Findings. As a result of the research, it was understood that emotional intelligence had no effect on the self-esteem.  Because the relations of concepts were not statistically significant (R2 = 0.00). Effect also did not occur at the female and male levels of the variable gender factor. Results. The argument that emotional intelligence, which is the basic hypothesis of the research, is effective on self-esteem scores has not been proved statistically. In the hierarchical regression analysis, which is based on the level of the gender factor, there was no relationship or effect.
