Abstract

Introduction. The aim of this study is two fold: a) to compare the emotional intelligence characteristics between G&T and non-G&T students in two geographies (Spain and England), using two samples (English and Spanish); and b) to study the differences by gender. Method. The total sample was 474 students: 202 G&T English and Spanish and 272 non-G&T English and Spanish (aged 6 to 12 years old). The instrument used was the EQ-i:YV (Emotional Intelligence Inventory: Young Version, Bar-On & Parker, 2000). Results and conclusions. The results indicated differences between the perception of emotional intelligence of Spanish G&T and English G&T students. As for geography, gender and the existence of G&T or not, we found that the English non-G&T girls obtained higher scores than the other groups in the stress management dimension. In addition, we found gender interaction for the interpersonal dimension. Results indicated that girls obtained higher scores than boys.
