Relación entre perfiles de inteligencia emocional y bienestar psicológico en personas con lesión medular

Raquel Suriá Martínez



The present study is aimed to analyze different emotional intelligence (EI) profiles in a group of people with spinal cord injury by traffic accidents. At the same time, significant differences in psychological well-being among profiles previously identified are also analyzed.


Trait Meta-Mood Scale-24 (TMMS-24) and the Psychological Well-Being Scale of Ryff [Escala de Bienestar Psicológico de Ryff] were administered to 94 people with spinal cord injury by traffic accidents, aged from 21 to 55 years (M=38.68; SD=7.36).


Cluster analyses allowed identifying three different EI profiles: a group of students with low EI profile, a group with predominance of high emotional clarity and emotional regulation and low emotional attention, and finally, a group of young people with high IE. Also, results revealed significant statistical differences in most domains of well-being among profiles. The people in groups with high overall scores in EI and clarity and repair emotional obtained higher scores on the different profiles of psychological well-being.


Results suggest the need of going in depth on EI knowledge and design psychological well-being programs for people with spinal cord injury.
