This study is aimed at assessing components of emotional intelligence among normal subjects and those with suicide trial records. Participants were selected through convenience sampling method that included 30 normal subjects as well as 30 subjects with a suicide trial record. Bar-On Questionnaire was used to collect data from participants. Data were analyzed through univariate t-test. Findings indicated normal people performed significantly better in the Problem solving, Happiness, Independence, Stress Tolerance, Self – Actualization, Reality Testing, Interpersonal Relationship, Optimism, Self–Regard, Impulse control, Flexibility, and Social Responsibility in comparison to their suicidal counterparts who performed poor in these items. It was thus concluded subjects with suicide trial records had less emotional intelligence and control which calls for needs for them to undergo rehabilitation programs.
