In this paper, the investigator indicates the emotional intelligence plays an important role in life and contributes to the personal and social development of an individual. There is something beyond the intellectual capacity, which determines the success of a person. A survey of the study of emotional intelligence of the higher secondary school teachers should be analyzed and the investigator has launched the investigation. The sample was limited to 350 higher secondary school teachers only. The study was restricted to higher secondary Teachers only. The study was restricted to Chengalpattu Educational District only. Only the survey method is used to collect data. The Emotional Intelligence Inventory tool was used in the study. The tool was designed and developed by Thomas Alexander (2004). The investigator used the ‘test-retest’ method in establishing the reliability of the tool on emotional intelligence. The responses of both the test and retest were scored and the Correlation Coefficient of 0.74 was found between the test and retest. The means score value of male teachers 55.15 and the means score value of female teachers is 56.64. The table value 1.96 is lesser than the calculated value t value. There is no significant difference between male and female higher secondary school Teachers in their Emotional Intelligence. Hence the null hypothesis is accepted. Teachers also should have proper training in developing their Emotional Intelligence and in improving their Social attachment.
