Key Words: Emotional Intelligence, Job Satisfaction and Secondary School Teachers


The term emotional intelligence was introduced in 1990 by two university professors of America Dr. Mayer and Dr. Salovey in their attempt to develop scientific measures for understanding variations in people’s aptitude in areas of emotions. Emotional Intelligence was well-defined as the ability to critically analyze emotions in four fields: to perceive emotions, to indulge it in the thinking process, to comprehend it and cope with it. Thus, it may be said the emotional intelligence is not only to comprehend one’s own emotions but others’ as well (Salovey and Mayer, 1990).
