Emotional intelligence, Self-awareness, Empathy, Self-motivation, Emotional imbalances


The purpose of the present research was a comparison of emotional intelligence in women Basketball and Handball players.  For that matter,126 players consisting of 56 women Basketball players and 70 women Handball players filled out a questionnaire which was developed by (Hyde, Pethe, & Dhar, 2002) This consists of 15 subscales for an overall assessment of emotional intelligence. The results of statistical analysis showed that the subscales of emotional intelligence and empathy were significantly higher in basketball players in comparison to handball players there was no significant difference for emotional self-awareness Considering the above findings, we can say that emotional intelligence is higher basketball player’s s than non-in handball player since they must constantly control and manage their emotions under different conditions of training and competition. Since emotional intelligence can be learned, it seems that participation in sports activities can be considered as a factor for developing this feature.
