Abstract

Without Emotional Intelligence (EI), a person can have the best training, an analytical mind and endless supply of ideas but will not make a great leader. Since, the teaching profession involves teaching, nurturing and leading, it may be assumed that EI is very important in ensuring teachers' effectiveness and job satisfaction. A total of 1200 primary and secondary school teachers from 60 schools in Malaysia participated in this research. The objective of this research was to ascertain the role of Emotional Intelligence (EI) on job satisfaction and the effect of gender on the relationship between EI and job satisfaction. A set of questionnaires containing Emotional Competence Inventory (ECI) for measuring EI and Job Diagnostic Survey (JDS) for measuring job satisfaction was used. Results of this study showed a significant positive relationship between EI and job satisfaction and no effect of gender on the relationship between the two variables.
