The Relationship between Nonverbal Intelligence and Emotional Intelligence among Children in UK and Oman

Tagharid Bint Turki Al Said


The study compared the relationship between nonverbal intelligence (IQ) and emotional intelligence (EQ) in
Omani and British pupils, also stratified by gender and age level (8, 9, 10 years old). The tests used were Raven's
Progressive Matrices Colored (CPM) and the short version of the Bar-On [Bar-On EQ-i: YV (S)] on 332 UK, and
465 Omani children. The results of the Raven test scores indicated that the largest number of British pupils fall into
the fifth level (Intellectually Average 25 +), while the largest number of Omani pupils fall into the fourth level
(Intellectually Average 50 +). The result of the Bar-On scale were statistically significant in the variables of state
(in favour of Omani children), and age (in favour of younger age). However, differences were not significant in the
variables of gender and 2-way and 3-way interactions.
