Adolescence is a period of shift from playful childhood and responsible adulthood. A teenager is torn by conflicting feelings. It is connected with a period of increased risk-taking behaviors as well as increased emotional reactivity. This is normally coincident with changes in the social and school environment, such as spending less time with parents and more with peers, as well as an increase in independence. These behavioral changes occur in the context of developmental changes that are influenced by both external environmental and internal factors that elicit and support behaviors (Jaworska & Macqueen, 2015). Emotional intelligence includes the ability to engage in sophisticated information processing about one's own and others' emotions and the ability to use this information as a guide to think and behave. That is an individual high in emotional intelligence pay attention to use, understand and manage emotions and these skills serve adaptive functions that potentially benefits themselves and others (Salovey et al., 2008). The study was conducted in Jind and Bhiwani districts of Haryana state. From which 240 adolescents from the age group of 14-16 years were selected randomly. In the study equal number of boys and girls were selected. For assessing Socio-personal variables, self-prepared interview schedule was used and for assessing emotional intelligence, Emotional intelligence scale by Hyde et al. (2002) was used. The collected data was systematically classified and tabulated as per the objectives of the study. To study data frequency, percentages, mean, standard deviation and independent sample 'z' test was used. Results showed that adolescents of Jind district were more committed, self-awarded, and emphatic, better at managing relations and are more emotionally stable than adolescents of Bhiwani district.

Abstract


Adolescence is a period of shift from playful childhood and responsible adulthood. A teenager is torn by conflicting feelings. It is connected with a period of increased risk-taking behaviors as well as increased emotional reactivity. This is normally coincident with changes in the social and school environment, such as spending less time with parents and more with peers, as well as an increase in independence. These behavioral changes occur in the context of developmental changes that are influenced by both external environmental and internal factors that elicit and support behaviors (Jaworska & Macqueen, 2015). Emotional intelligence includes the ability to engage in sophisticated information processing about one's own and others' emotions and the ability to use this information as a guide to think and behave. That is an individual high in emotional intelligence pay attention to use, understand and manage emotions and these skills serve adaptive functions that potentially benefits themselves and others (Salovey et al., 2008). The study was conducted in Jind and Bhiwani districts of Haryana state. From which 240 adolescents from the age group of 14-16 years were selected randomly. In the study equal number of boys and girls were selected. For assessing Socio-personal variables, self-prepared interview schedule was used and for assessing emotional intelligence, Emotional intelligence scale by Hyde et al. (2002) was used. The collected data was systematically classified and tabulated as per the objectives of the study. To study data frequency, percentages, mean, standard deviation and independent sample 'z' test was used. Results showed that adolescents of Jind district were more committed, self-awarded, and emphatic, better at managing relations and are more emotionally stable than adolescents of Bhiwani district.
