Abstract

This study is aimed to investigate the influence of Intellectual Quotient (IQ), Emotional Quotient (EQ), and Emotional Quotient (SQ) against the Adversity Quotient (AQ) of polytechnic students. This integration is expected to further strengthen the National Education Philosophy (NEP) model which has so far emphasized the development of students from physical aspects, emotionally, spiritually and intellectually only.A total of 1,845 respondents from five polytechnics in Malaysia were involved in this study. Multistage stratified proportional cluster sampling technique was applied. The findings of the multiple regression model analysis showed that the combination of EQ and SQ have contributed about 32.5% (r = 0.571) change in the variance of AQ scores. It clearly proved that only EQ and SQ were the predictors of polytechnic students’ AQ. IQ was not contributed as a predictor for AQ. AQ was also seen as a highly potential intelligence to be integrated into the NEP.The replication of the original concept of AQ from work organization to polytechnic field education has been proven to be successful and showed a consistency in the findings.
