  • : The results of multiple regression did not show a significant relationship between the anthropometric indexes of emotional intelligence and IQ of children. However, a significant, weak, and reverse relationship was observed between their weight and the total score of emotional intelligence (correlation coefficient= -0.134 and sig. level = 0.044). There were reverse correlations between weight for age and condition of emotional intelligence evaluation, and between weight for age and total score of emotional intelligences (correlation coefficient= -0.244 and sig. level = 0.026 and correlation coefficient= -0.214 and sig. level = 0.044). In addition, a significant, weak, and reverse correlation was seen between age and emotional intelligence (correlation coefficient= -0.144 and sig. level = 0.033).
