  • Abstract

    Background: The Emotional Quotient Inventory: Youth Version-EQ-i:YV was developed by Bar-On & Parker (2000). Aims: To validate and analyze the scale’s psychometric properties in adults with Down syndrome. Methods: A two-stage cross-sectional investigation was conducted. First, we performed a pilot study (n = 10) to test internal consistency and item analysis of the subscales; second, we carried out exploratory (n = 90) and confirmatory (n = 96) factor analyses. Outcomes: The 5-factor structure of the Bar-On EQ-i:YV – general mood, stress management, adaptability, interpersonal and intrapersonal – was confirmed. However, the scale was reduced to 48 items, with the adaptability dimension being particularly affected. The internal consistency (alpha and split halves) of all five dimensions and the EQ-i:YV’s total calculated score yielded high values. Conclusions: This new version of the EQ-i:YV represents a valid and reliable tool to assess emotional intelligence in Spanish adults with Down syndrome.
  • Technical Information

    Response Rates: The study was carried out over two stages. First, internal consistency testing and item analysis of the subscales covered in the pilot sample were performed. Second, factor analyses (exploratory and confirmatory–EFA/CFA) were conducted to determine whether the translated Spanish version for adolescents with DS reveals the same five factors contained within this questionnaire translated into Spanish by Ferrándiz et al. (2012) for adolescents.

    Presence of Common Scales: Emotional Quotient Inventory: Youth Version (EQ-i:YV; Bar-On & Parker, 2000). This questionnaire was validated for use among Spanish children and adolescents by Ferrándiz et al. (2012). It is based on the 60-item adult version that assesses several EI dimensions on a 4-point Likert scale, ranging from 1 “It never happens to me” to 4 “It always happens to me”. The EQ-i:YV in Spanish measures Emotional–Social Intelligence (ESI), taking into account five components: intrapersonal (INTRA), interpersonal (INTER), adaptability (A), stress management (SM), and general mood (GM). The English version contains a ‘Positive Impression’ subdimension which was not included in the Spanish version. The version adapted by Ferrándiz et al. (2012) for use among Spanish adolescents in the general population was chosen for this study.
