Multiple and Emotional Intelligence: Correlates of Freshmen Education Students' Academic Performance in English
Keywords:academic performance, emotional intelligences, multiple intelligences
Multiple and Emotional Intelligence refers to a broader range of human intelligence in children and adults. These are the variety of intellect and skills, including the ability to judge, comprehend, and deal effectively with people, objects, symbols, and the environment, act purposely, reason, and monitor one's emotions. This study aimed to determine whether the Multiple and Emotional Intelligence of Freshmen Education Students correlates with their academic performance in English. Thirty (30) participants from Freshmen Education in one of the Colleges in Cagayan de Oro City School Year 2022–2023 are part of this study. The research instrument used in this study is an adopted questionnaire from Walter McKenzie's Multiple Intelligence inventory and Mind Tools' How Emotionally Intelligent are you. The result shows that participants had varied intelligence. However, intelligence such as intrapersonal and self-awareness, substantially correlated to respondents' academic performance in English. Moreover, multiple and emotional intelligence correlate with respondents' Academic Performance in English, where teachers must be flexible in using instructions that recognize the students' intelligence, particularly intrapersonal and self-awareness, as it will help them perform better in English subjects.
