Emotional intelligence is described as the ability to monitor one’s own and others feelings and emotions, to discriminate among them and to use this information to guide one’s thinking and actions. Several publications have appeared on the subject of emotional intelligence. The main objective of this research is to examine whether there is any significant difference about emotional intelligence according to gender. In this study, 215 surveys were conducted. A Mann-Whitney test indicated that emotional intelligence was greater for females than males.
