Emotional intelligence and job satisfaction in tertiary education: the case of university lecturers in Taiwan

2024. Vol. 14. No. 1. P. 30–54 [issue contents]
Emotional intelligence and job satisfaction are important factors in today’s workplace. Academic study and practical integration efforts aim to investigate these factors. Purpose. The primary aim of this study is to examine the extent of emotional intelligence and job satisfaction among tertiary educators in Taiwanese universities. Additionally, the secondary aim involves evaluating the correlation between emotional intelligence and job satisfaction. Study design. Data was collected using a survey approach and two self-administered questionnaires, namely TEIQue-SF and JSS. The survey revealed that Taiwanese university professors possess a significant level of emotional intelligence. Findings. The findings indicate that these individuals possess a level of job satisfaction that is higher than the average. Furthermore, the findings also suggest that emotionality does not affect thecharacteristics of work, communication, or colleagues, but it does have a significant positive correlation with salary, additional benefits, and performance-based awards. Implication for practice. This impliesthat academics who exhibit a significant degree of emotionality prioritize financial compensation, additional benefits, and performance-based rewards over the nature of their work, communication, and relationships with colleagues.
