The ability which helps an individual to identify and manage his own emotions as well as of others is called emotional intelligence. It is one of the most potent regulating and directing forces of behavior. Emotions can run wild and bring havoc into one’s life. ‘Emotional atyachar’ can make one’s life unbearable while the other part of it is very much positive. Due to lack of emotional intelligence an individual can do any sort of unexpected anti-social activities. The success and failure in an examination is also greatly determined by E.Q. The purpose of the present study is to find out the emotional intelligence level among the secondary school students in general and the difference in their emotional intelligence level between the students groups residing at biological homes and in Satras in particular. The sample for the present study comprised of total 60 respondents: thirty (30) adolescents from Satras, and an equivalent number of students from biological family of Majuli district, Assam.
