Two hundred thirteen university students (mean age = 24.41, SD = 2.61) were administered the Emotional Intelligence Scale (EIS) and the Resistance to Change Scale (RCS). It emerged that the Appraisal and expression of emotions dimension on the EIS is a better inverse predictor both of the Routine seeking dimension and the Emotional reaction to imposed change dimension on the RCS.
