This study analyzes the self-perception of stress management depending on the intelligence level (low, medium, and high) in a sample of 679 students (46.50% boys and 53.50% girls) aged between 12 and 18 years of age (M= 13.90; SD= 1.28). All the students were attending semi-private schools of Compulsory Secondary Education (ESO) in the community of Valencia (Spain). Stress management self-perception was assessed using the Bar-On test of Emotional intelligence (EQ-i:YV, Baron & Parker, 2000); and intelligence was assessed using the Test of Differential Attitudes (DAT-5; Bennett, Seashore & Wesman, 2000). In addition, a total of 406 parents and 103 teachers also informed about their perception of the students' stress management using the EQ-i:YV-O (Bar-On & Parker, in press). The data show statistically significant differences in the self-perception of stress management according to the participants' intellectual level.
