EMOTIONAL COMPETENCIES

Emotional Competence Scale contains with five alternatives. To achieve and maintain a feeling of adequacy, the individual has to acquire a few workable assumptions about the world, where need for competence emerges as most of the fundamental motive of life, because we survive through competence, grow through competence and actualize ourselves through competence (Allport, 1961). Doing a thing is quite different from doing it well, where one can produce the type of effects, one desires, may be termed as competence. It also refers to the mastering of abilities to do a task, sufficiency of means for living, easy circumstances or, in ethical sense, a right to take cognizance which specifies the process of observation, comprehension, explanation, exploration and manipulation of the experiences more objectively with the fullest use of an individual’s normal capabilities. The motivation to be emotionally competent is concerned more with product of abilities rather than their sheer exercise and works as a constructive force in shaping the individuals behavior while inefficiencies may cause serious consequences in the dynamics of human behavior. EC as an efficiency to deal effectively with several dissociable but related process is a blending of five competencies:
1. Adequate Depth of Feeling (ADF)
2. Adequate Expression and Control of Emotions (AECE)
3. Ability to Function with Emotions (AFE)
4. Ability to Cope with Problems Emotions (ACPE)
5. Enhancement of Positive Emotions (EPE)

Finally the scale has 30 items to measure these emotional competencies. These thirty items for five different competencies in the scale along with their item numbers are shown below and the score would be read with the Astrological chart to know more about the combination of planets.
