Being Emotionally Intelligent: A Matter of Regulating Affect?
The main purpose of the present study was to investigate the extent that dimensions of emotional intelligence (EI) would explain affect intensity. It was assumed that emotionally intelligent individuals in similarity to under-aroused individuals tend to actively take action to raise baseline physical arousal. The test of EI developed by Sjöberg (2001) and the Affect Intensity Measure were administrered to 282 young adults. Results revealed that affect intensity was explained to an important extent by the dimension measuring emotional intelligence proper. This suggested that knowledge about emotions, and how to regulate them, is related to heightened reactivity to emotion-provoking stimuli, and that such knowledge consequently becomes necessary for a more efficient regulation of emotional state.
