The Effect of Emotional Intelligence on Subjective Well-being among Swedes (English)
Abstract [sv]

De senaste årtiondena har forskning visat att det finns flera fördelar med att ha en välutvecklad emotionell intelligens. Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka vilken effekt den emotionella intelligensen har på människors subjektiva välbefinnande med samtidig kontroll för effekten av personlighet. Syftet var också att studera om den emotionella intelligensen kan påverka sambandet mellan personlighet och subjektivt välbefinnande. I en tvärsnittsstudie samlades data in via en enkät som mätte deltagarnas emotionella intelligens, personlighet samt subjektiva välbefinnande via delkomponenterna livstillfredsställelse och lycka. Totalt deltog 275 svenska respondenter i åldrarna 18-70 år. Resultatet visade att emotionell intelligens positivt förutspådde både subjektivt välbefinnande samt delkomponenterna livstillfredsställelse och lycka. Dessutom var den emotionella intelligensen en starkare prediktor än personlighet för det subjektiva välbefinnandet. Däremot modererade inte emotionell intelligens sambandet mellan respektive personlighetsdrag och subjektivt välbefinnande. Slutsatsen för studien är att en hög grad av emotionell intelligens förutspår ett högt subjektivt välbefinnande och ett lyckligt liv.

Abstract [en]

A well-developed emotional intelligence has shown to have many benefits. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of emotional intelligence on subjective well-being, while controlling for the effect of personality. The study also examined whether the association between personality and subjective well-being changes depending on the level of emotional intelligence. In a survey with a cross-sectional design, trait emotional intelligence, personality and subjective well-being, measured by its two components lifesatisfaction and happiness, were measured. 275 Swedish respondents in the age range of 18-70 years participated in the study. The results showed that emotional intelligence was a strong positive predictor of subjective well-being as well as for life satisfaction and happiness. Moreover, emotional intelligence was a stronger predictor of subjective well-being than personality was. However, emotional intelligence did not moderate the association between personality traits and subjective well-being. The conclusion is that a high level of emotional intelligence predicts high subjective well-being and a happy life.
