Abstract

The purpose of the study is to determine whether emotional intelligence affects burnout rates among university instructors. It measures emotional intelligence and burnout using the Wong and Law Emotional Intelligence Scale and the Oldenburg Burnout Inventory, respectively. To evaluate the data, 102 participants in a cross-sectional design were used. We investigated the impact of emotional intelligence on burnout among university teachers, while also considering demographic factors such as gender and marital status. Our findings reveal a significant impact of emotional intelligence on burnout levels among university teachers, with higher emotional intelligence being associated with reduced burnout. Furthermore, demographic variables like gender and marital status showed minimal impact on burnout levels. These results suggest that enhancing emotional intelligence could be an effective strategy for reducing burnout among university instructors, irrespective of demographic variations.
