Abstract

This review presents accurate research results in complex adolescent literature and further clarifies that emotional intelligence is fundamental in adolescent development and has an essential role in developmental stages. 15 journals are used to review national and international publications from 2004–2018. Reviewed from gender differences, teenage boys have low levels of emotional intelligence than teenage girls. Emotions strongly affect the behavior of adolescents in developmental phases. High emotional intelligence has an impact on the process of good social interaction, the establishment of a good self-concept, the decrease of juvenile delinquency, and the enhancement of academic abilities. Adolescents who have low emotional intelligent tend to behave poorly, commit deviations and violations to themselves, such as frustration, conflicting irregularities, and exacerbating mental health. Therefore, emotional intelligence that teenagers possess can develop their social relationships, reduce their stress and frustration, increase their understanding of other people’s emotions, and prevent or reduce the behavior of delinquency. The role of this emotional intelligence can be developed in an educational or clinical setting and has implications for parents and teachers.
