The period of adolescence is vital for a person's total growth, both mentally and physically. It is the state or process of growing up. The growth and development of the person are dependent on the family. Motivation, job performance, decision-making, effective management, and leadership all depend on emotional intelligence. This research examines the impact of emotional intelligence and family environment on the personality of rural adolescents. Good Mental health and wellness is significantly predicted by personality. The study was conducted in rural areas of Bhiwani district and Gurugram district of Haryana State. Each district sample constituted of randomly selected 120 adolescents including 60 males and 60 females. The results revealed that the majority of the adolescents had an average level of emotional intelligence, personality, and family environment. Emotional intelligence and personality are associated with some personal and socio-economic variables like parental education, parental occupation, ordinal position, and number of siblings, and annual family income. The comparison revealed that Talu village, adolescents' were found better in emotional intelligence and personality than Mahu village's, adolescents. Study also suggests that a positive and significant relationship exists between emotional intelligence and family environment among adolescents.

The period of adolescence is vital for a person's total growth, both mentally and physically. It is the state or process of growing up. The growth and development of the person are dependent on the family. Motivation, job performance, decision-making, effective management, and leadership all depend on emotional intelligence. This research examines the impact of emotional intelligence and family environment on the personality of rural adolescents. Good Mental health and wellness is significantly predicted by personality. The study was conducted in rural areas of Bhiwani district and Gurugram district of Haryana State. Each district sample constituted of randomly selected 120 adolescents including 60 males and 60 females. The results revealed that the majority of the adolescents had an average level of emotional intelligence, personality, and family environment. Emotional intelligence and personality are associated with some personal and socio-economic variables like parental education, parental occupation, ordinal position, and number of siblings, and annual family income. The comparison revealed that Talu village, adolescents' were found better in emotional intelligence and personality than Mahu village's, adolescents.
