Abstract


This study explores the emotional intelligence of online gamers pursuing undergraduate education in Tirunelveli District. Emotional intelligence (EI) is a crucial aspect of personal and academic success, and its significance in the context of higher education is increasingly recognized. This study examines the level of emotional intelligence among undergraduate students, considering various factors such as gender, academic discipline, year of study, and course system. The findings reveal that a significant portion of both female and male students demonstrate a high level of emotional intelligence, suggesting a relatively balanced distribution across gender. Moreover, students from both arts and science disciplines exhibit high emotional intelligence levels, emphasizing the universality of this skill. Emotional intelligence remains consistent across different years of study, with a noteworthy proportion of II-year students demonstrating high EI. Additionally, self-financed students, irrespective of their course system, exhibit a high level of emotional intelligence.Furthermore, the study concludes that there is no significant difference in emotional intelligence concerning gender, academic discipline, year of study, or course system among the online gamers pursuing undergraduate education.  The importance of emotional intelligence for college students is underscored, as it equips them with essential skills for managing stress, building interpersonal relationships, enhancing self-awareness, making informed decisions, and fostering overall well-being. Additionally, emotional intelligence has implications for leadership, mental health, career success, conflict resolution, academic performance, and creating inclusive campus communities. In light of these findings, recommendations are made for educational institutions to prioritize emotional intelligence development and create a more inclusive and supportive learning environment. This study emphasizes the role of emotional intelligence in enhancing the personal and academic success of college students, shedding light on its significance in the context of higher education.
