- The objective of the present study was to investigate the predictive association between emotional intelligence and burnout in people working at managerial level. A purposive sample of 100 managers was recruited from different organizations in Karachi, Pakistan. Their ages ranged from 23 to 62 years with the mean age of 35.64 years. The measures used along with Demographic Form in the study included: (1) The Assessing Emotions Scale (Schutte, Malouff & Bhullar, 2009); (2) Burnout Questionnaire (American Public Welfare Association, 1981). Linear Regression Analysis was computed to interpret the data in statistical terminology. The analyses reveal significant predictive relationship of Perception of Emotion, Managing Own Emotions and Total Emotional Intelligence (T-EI) with burnout. However, Managing Other’s Emotions and Utilization of Emotions are found as insignificant predictors of Burn Out. These findings have implications for management level in organizations and also open avenues for future research.
