Abstract

This research was designed to assess the relationship between emotional intelligence and its components with symptoms of borderline personality disorder in a non-clinical population. Materials and Methods: Inthis descriptive-correlation study 358 students were randomly selected from various faculties of Shiraz University in Shiraz city, south western part of Iran during 2008-9. Emotional Intelligence and symptoms of borderline personality disorder were assessed by Trait Meta Mood Scale (TMMS) and Schizotypal Trait Questionnaire-B form (STB), respectively. Pearson correlation and multiple regression analysis tests were used to analyze data. Results: There was a significant reverse relationship between the general scores of emotional intelligence and borderline personality disorder (P<0.001). Â Also there were significant reverse relationships between emotional intelligence components (attention, clarity and repair) and symptoms of borderline personality disorder (hopelessness, impulsivity and stress related dissociative and paranoid symptoms) (P<0.001). Multiple regression analysis showed that clarity of feelings is the unique component of emotional intelligence which can predict borderline personality disorder and its factors. Conclusion: Emotional intelligence is reversely related to symptoms of borderline personality disorder and clarity of feelings is capable to predict symptoms of borderline personality disorder. Â
