In the fast-paced competitive world young women faces problems that are related with various areas of life such as educational, social, familial and emotional. These problems have negative impact on their mental and emotional well-being. Emotional well-being of young adults is determined by various emotional intelligence skills such as self-awareness, emotional regulation, empathy, social skills, motivation and self-esteem. There are several researches conducted in the area of positive psychology which focus on the role of emotional intelligence and positive affect in the prevention of physical illness and mental disorders. Hence, the present study aimed to examine the emotional intelligence of young women. The samples were comprised of 120 young women in Hyderabad, India. Emotional intelligence was assessed through Sevenfold Emotional Intelligence Scale (SEIS) by Dr. Sarabjit Kaur (1999). Descriptive statistics such as frequencies and percentages were used for analysis of data. The results of the present investigation showed that majority of the young women had average, below average, low and extremely low levels of emotional intelligence whereas very few of them had above average level of emotional intelligence. The findings of the present research also revealed that none of the young women had high and extremely high level of emotional intelligence. This shows that women were lacking behind in emotional intelligence skills because of their overburdened life and stressful work and family life.

Keywords: Self-awareness, Emotional Regulation, Empathy, Social skills, Self-esteem, Emotional Intelligence, Stressful, Sevenfold Emotional Intelligence Scale (SEIS)
