Abstract

Literature has shown that incremental theorists have greater scholastic and professional results, higher well-being and more positive emotional experiences. Nonetheless, measurement in the implicit theories of emotional-related domains is still scarce. Therefore, this paper examined the properties of a newly developed implicit theories of emotional intelligence scale (ITEI) among a sample of 612 adolescents. The exploratory factor analysis evidenced the scale’s two-factor structure - incremental and entity - with 54.2% of total explained variance. Confirmatory factor analysis established the bifactorial model, and ITEI presented invariant measurement across gender. Cronbach's alpha and half-split coefficients were above .90. ITEI presented discriminant validity with related measures, such as the implicit theories of intelligence and emotions towards school. Globally, the results suggest that ITEI is a psychometrically sound measure to assess implicit theories of emotional intelligence.
