Abstract

Background: Emotional Intelligence (EI) is considered as a new topic in the field of health. Studies conducted in this field have explained the role of EI in various aspects of life (e.g social relations). The present study was carried out to assess the correlation between the emotional intelligence and accident among the motorcycle riders in Kashan (Isfahan, Iran). Materials and Methods: The sampling was done using the convenience method from the motorcycle riders referred to Beheshti Hospital in Kashan during 2014. Data were collected using two EI (demographic and Bar–on) questionnaires. Data were analyzed using Mann-Whitney U, Chi-square, independent t and the logistic regression for assessing the relationship between the emotional intelligence components and other variables with accident. Results: The Mean EI and 9 subscales from the total 15 scales were significant between two groups. There was a significant difference between motorcycle riding with and without an accident in the Mean overall EI, so that the Mean was higher in motorcycle riders without an accident (P<0.05). Conclusion: Our findings confirmed the important role of EI in extending the skills of emotional intelligence in the prevention of accidents and the importance of early prevention among the high risk groups. Moreover, the importance of the underlying educational programming for improving EI in such groups is considered a necessity.
