Abstract

This study analyzes the relationship of Botín Foundation's Emotional Intelligence Test for Adolescents (TIEFBA), a new ability-based measure to assess emotional intelligence (EI), with personal and scholar adjustment in Spanish adolescents. The instrument, based on the Mayer and Salovey model (1997), measures four branches of abilities while the participant is executing emotional tasks triggered by an emotion-eliciting situation. The TIEFBA was developed according to the Situational Judgment Test paradigm and it comprises eight scenes designed to evoke positive and negative emotions. A total of 1684 Spanish adolescents (48.2% males, mean age 14.37) completed the TIEFBA. Data on personality, empathy, intelligence and psychosocial adjustment were collected. The results provide evidence of instrument reliability and factorial, convergent, discriminant and some predictive validity. They further suggest that the TIEFBA is a promising new measure for assessing EI in Spanish adolescents, which will allow researchers and educators to understand better how EI affects youth as well as assess the impact of EI interventions.

Resumen

Este estudio analiza la relación del Test de Inteligencia Emocional de la Fundación Botín para Adolescentes (TIEFBA), una nueva medida de habilidad para evaluar la inteligencia emocional (IE), con el ajuste personal y escolar en adolescentes españoles. El instrumento, basado en el modelo de Mayer y Salovey (1997), evalúa las cuatro ramas mientras el participante está resolviendo tareas emocionales generadas por una situación emocional. El TIEFBA fue desarrollado de acuerdo con el paradigma del Test de Juicio Situacional y comprende ocho escenas diseñadas para evocar emociones positivas y negativas. Un total de 1684 adolescentes españoles (48.2% varones, edad media 14.37 años) completaron el TIEFBA. Se recogieron datos sobre personalidad, empatía, inteligencia y ajuste psicosocial. Los resultados proporcionan evidencia de la fiabilidad de los instrumentos y su validez factorial, convergente, discriminante y también alguna predictiva. Estos resultados sugieren que el TIEFBA es una nueva medida prometedora para evaluar la IE en los adolescentes españoles, lo que permitirá a los investigadores y educadores entender mejor cómo la IE afecta a los adolescentes, así como evaluar el impacto de las intervenciones en IE.
