Author(s): Phalguni Bhattacharya
The main objective of the study was to predict the perception of home environment of adolescents on the bases of their emotional intelligence and social maturity. The sample consisted of 210 school students (105 girls and 105 boys) of Kolkata city aged 13 through 15 years. The technique of stratified random sampling was used to select students belonging to the two gender groups with each gender group comprising 35 students each belonging to upper middle, middle middle and lower middle socio – economic status families respectively. For assessment of socio-economic status the Socio-Economic Status Scale (Meenakshi, 2004) was administered. Then standardized tools viz., the Home Environment Inventory (Misra, 2003), Mangal Emotional Intelligence Inventory (Mangal & Mangal, 2009) and Rao’s Social Maturity. Scale (Rao, 2006) were administered to the students in the final sample for assessing their perception of home environment, emotional intelligence and social maturity respectively. Multiple Regression Analyses and Two-Way ANOVA revealed significant prediction of perception of home environment on the bases of emotional intelligence and social maturity of early adolescents. Results of z test showed that the gender difference in regression coefficients of emotional intelligence and social maturity were non-significant at 0.05 level of significance.
