by Nikhil K. Mehta
International Journal of Indian Culture and Business Management (IJICBM), Vol. 10, No. 1, 2015

Abstract: The achievement of modern literature of psychology can be ascribed to the back-up it has acquired, from eastern philosophies. Considering this, I revisited emotional intelligence through the realms of Vedic literature. The objectives of the study were to draw a latent structure of emotional intelligence for students. Discriminant validity was determined to ensure usefulness of the test. The findings were discussed in light of the deontological prescriptions of Srimad Bhagavad Gita. Having the consideration that emotional intelligence is a culturally sensitive construct, the study explores the same in Indian milieu.
