Students Social Intelligence and the Choice of Behavioral Strategies in Conflict ResolutionAuthor(s): Sergey V. Scherbakov*
The purpose of the presented study is to develop a methodology for measuring social intelligence based on the assumption that social intelligence is reflected in the process of sourcing an optimal strategy for overcoming conflict situations. The efficacy endpoint of the respondents' answers was the degree of compliance with the group consensus. The level of social intelligence did not form significant correlations with the scales of the NEO-FFI questionnaire and also with the level of intelligence according to Raven’s test. The conducted study revealed a positive role of social intelligence in the structure of predictors of the students’ learning performance and also negative associations of social intelligence with the level of disharmony of interpersonal relationships.
