The aim of this study is to investigate the Emotional Intelligence (EI) levels of athletes in different branches of sport in terms of some demographic variables. In the study, a 5-dimensional and19-item scale was used, which was developed by Shuutle et al. and then subjected to a validity and reliability study by Lane for use in sports. A total of 480 people participated in the study. It was observed that EI increased significantly in parallel with the increase in age levels, and that the EI levels of team players were found to be significantly higher than that of athletes in individual branches of sport. © Sila Science.
