    ABSTRACT: Título: La medición de la Inteligencia Emocional en adolescentes españo-les con trastorno de ansiedad. Resumen: La Inteligencia Emocional (IE) es un concepto que ha sido dis-cutido durante décadas en Psicología pero no ha recibido apoyo empírico hasta hace pocos años, a pesar de ello parece que en las últimas décadas es-te concepto está suscitando mucho interés entre las diversas áreas de la Psi-cología. Con este creciente interés, el concepto de percepción de la Inteli-gencia Emocional está recibiendo mayor atención. Debido a interés mos-trado en este concepto, este artículo tiene como objetivo explorar dos as-pectos importantes del mismo: la medida de la percepción de la IE y las implicaciones que la percepción de la IE puede tener en adolescentes con un trastorno de Ansiedad Social (TAS). Este estudio explora un cuestiona-rio muy utilizado para evaluar el PEI, llamado Trait Meta-Mood Scale (TMMS). La versión española reducida de dicho cuestionario (TMMS-24) y una serie de cuestionarios muy utilizados para evaluar el TAS fueron admi-nistrados a 425 adolescentes españoles. Los resultados del estudio corrobo-raron que el TMMS-24 posee buenas propiedades psicométricas en adoles-centes y que el componente de regulación emocional parece que está invo-lucrado en la ansiedad social. Palabras clave: Adolescentes; instrumentos de evaluación; inteligencia emocional; ansiedad social. Abstract: Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a concept that has been discussed for decades in Psychology but has received very little empirical study until recently. And with this growing interest, its accompanying concept, Per-ceived Emotional Intelligence (PEI), has also received more attention. It is due to this growing interest in PEI that this paper explores two important aspects of the PEI: the measurement of PEI and the implications PEI may have for adolescent anxiety disorder symptomology. This study explores a well-known questionnaire of PEI, namely the Trait Meta-Mood Scale ques-tionnaire (TMMS). The Spanish shortened version of the Trait Meta-Mood Scale questionnaire (TMMS-24) and a series of well-known questionnaires of Social Anxiety Disorder symptomology were administrated to 425 Span-ish high-school adolescents. The results of this study corroborated that the TMMS-24 has good psychometric properties in adolescents, and that one of its three scales (Emotional Repair) appears to be involved in adolescent SAD symptomology.

    ABSTRACT: Past studies associated emotional intelligence with positive workplace outcomes, such as job performance and job satisfaction. However, to date, the relationship between emotional intelligence and individual differences in entrepreneurship has been scarcely examined. In this study, the contribution of emotional intelligence dimensions to entrepreneurial potential is explored, controlling for the influence of personality traits and demographic variables. Using a sample of 394 participants, it has been tested, by means of multiple hierarchical regression analyses, the mediating role of entrepreneurial self- efficacy in the relationship between emotional intelligence dimensions and the intention to become entrepreneur. Results indicate that two dimensions of emotional intelligence, regulation and utilization of emotions, positively positively affect entrepreneurial self-efficacy. In turn, the perception of self-efficacy mediates the relation between emotional intelligence and the intention to become an entrepreneur.ResumenEstudios previos relacionan la inteligencia emocional con resultados positivos en el puesto de trabajo, tales como el desempeño y la satisfacción laboral. Sin embargo, la relación entre la inteligencia emocional y las diferencias individuales en emprendimiento han sido escasamente examinadas. En el presente estudio se analiza el efecto de las dimensiones de la inteligencia emocional sobre el potencial emprendedor, tras con- trolar la influencia de los rasgos de personalidad y variables demográficas. Concretamente, con una mues- tra de 394 participantes, por medio de análisis de regresión jerárquica, se pone a prueba el rol mediador de la auto-eficacia emprendedora en la relación entre las dimensiones de la inteligencia emocional y la inten- ción de llegar a ser un emprendedor. Los resultados indican que dos dimensiones de la inteligencia emocio- nal, la regulación y la utilización de emociones, afectan positivamente a la auto-eficacia emprendedora. Además, la percepción de auto-eficacia media la relación entre la inteligencia emocional y la intención de ser un emprendedor.KeywordsEmotional intelligenceEntrepreneurial intentionEntrepreneurial self-efficacyPersonality traitsPalabras claveInteligencia emocionalIntención emprendedoraAuto-eficacia emprendedoraRasgos de personalidad

    ABSTRACT: The main objective of our work is to analyze the emotions of prospective teachers of secondary education in relation to the teaching and learning of science subjects in order to find the difficulties that may arise in the classroom in order to intervene later them, trying to bring students to the branches and science careers. To do this, we have developed a questionnaire containing possible emotions aroused in the process of learning for science subjects and those emotions that they feel as future science teachers. The sample consisted of 178 students of the CAP (Certificate of Pedagogical Aptitud) of the University of Extremadura during the 2008/2009 academic year. The results show a clear sympathy for the subjects of Nature Sciences (Primary) and Biology (Secondary), and decreased positive emotions towards Physics (Secondary) and Chemistry (Secondary). Comparing the two stages, as a student and future teacher, we found a clear decrease in positive emotions and an increase in certain negative emotions (anxiety, worry, fear) in the teaching stage, especially in the content related to Physics and Chemistry.
