Abstract

Relationships exist in all aspects of life whether work, family or friendship related. With the use of The Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire – Short Form (TEIQue-SF) comprised of four factors (well-being, self-control, emotionality and sociability) and the Relationship Assessment Scale (RRS) the association between trait emotional intelligence (TEI) and romantic relationship satisfaction (RRS) was evaluated across Young-Adults (18 - 28) and Middle-Age adults (29 - 40) that completed the study (n = 124). To understand how accumulated life experiences could influence TEI levels, the impact of age on trait emotional intelligence was also investigated. Quantitative analyses revealed a weak, positive relationship between trait emotional intelligence and relationship satisfaction. No significant difference in scores were found between age and TEI. Limitations of the study present within the age representations between the two age groups. Ideas for future research is provided in order to improve interpersonal relationship satisfaction.
