This study examined three variables: emotional Intelligence, anxiety, and resiliency. These variables are academic concerns because the literature review indicate that academic achievement improves or deteriorates with the presence or lack of characteristics related to these variables. They are educational concerns because they are fundamental to human development. In this study, the investigation examined the possible relationship of these variables using the following instruments: Mehrabian’s (2001) General Emotional Intelligence Scale (GEIS); Spielberger’s State-Trait Anxiety Inventory; Connor’s (after Wolin & Wolin, 1993) Resiliency Scale. Four graduate classes participated in completing these self-report scales. The data indicates that a positive and significant relationship exists between emotional intelligence and resiliency and a negative and significant relationship exists between emotional intelligence and anxiety. Today, perhaps more than before, education must address these particular variables.
