Abstract

Objective: The original Emotional Intelligence Scale of Fukunishi utilized 65 items, measuring three basic dimensions: Intrapersonal, Interpersonal and Situational. Subsequently, using a sample of 170 US psychiatric outpatients, it was factor reduced from 65 to 34 items that showed excellent internal consistency both overall and for two of its three hypothesized factors. Method: This study examined the internal consistency of the 34-item solution in a cohort of 123 Turkish psychiatric outpatients. Results: The mean age of the sample was 34.5 years (SD=11.2). The internal consistency of the total scale was 0.91. Scores also were high for the Interpersonal dimension (0.90) and the Intrapersonal dimension (.0.84), but not for the Situational dimension (0.67). A similar lower scoring pattern for the Situational dimension has been seen both in US and Japanese outpatient populations. Discussion: These data suggest that, in a Turkish psychiatric outpatient population, this scale also appears to maintain excellent internal consistency both overall and for two of its three hypothesized factors. This inventory may be suitable to investigate suitability for psychological treatments.
