Abstract

Purpose: Research in the field of Emotional Intelligence have become a dynamic study area over the past few decades and is likely to become even more so as the importance of human resource management is rapidly gaining momentum. Therefore understanding Emotional Intelligence will be viewed as increasingly important. India has been regarded as the youngest country in the world by the UN as it has the world’s largest youth population where more than 365 billion people are between the age group 10 and 24 years. This clearly indicates that the fate of the country lies in the hands of its Net Generation. Net Generation refers to people who undergo maximum emotional fluctuations which impacts their academic performance. Emotional Intelligence is one of the most neglected component in the Indian education system due to the complexity in its computation. Emotional Intelligence shapes an individual’s personality, measured by big 5 personality traits of an individual (Openness to experience, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness and Neuroticism) and controls the behavior of the person which has a strong relationship with the academic performance. This article aims at examining the relationship between Emotional Intelligence, Personality and Academic performance of net generation students.
