A study on risk taking behaviour in relation to emotional intelligence among secondary school students


Sarita Devi, Pushpawati Kochrekar

The current study investigated risk-taking behavior with relationship to emotional intelligence among secondary school students, with the notion that emotional intelligence can assist students in taking risks that contribute to intellectual advancement. The study's sample consisted of 200 pupils in senior secondary courses from the Rohtak area of Haryana. Dr. Y.K Gupta's tool and the S.K emotional intelligence questionnaire were used to assess risk-taking behavior. To test the hypothesis, product moment coefficients of correlation were determined. The study's findings indicate a positive association between emotional intelligence and risk-taking behavior in teenage boys, whereas girls refute that finding. The results also reveal that students with high emotional intelligence are high risk takers, whereas students with medium or poor emotional intelligence are low risk takers in the learning environment.
