The main purpose of the present study was to investigate psychometric properties of the Trait Emotional Intelligence- Adolescent Short Form (TEI-ASF, Petrides, Sangareau, Furnham & Frederickson, 2006) among Iranian gifted adolescents. In this correlational study, 347 gifted adolescents (148 male and 199 female) completed the Trait Emotional Intelligence- Adolescent Short Form (TEI-ASF) and the Adolescent Resilience Scale (ARS, Oshio, Nakaya, Kaneko & Nagamine, 2002). The confirmatory factor analysis method and internal consistency were used to determine the TEI-ASF's factorial validity and reliability, respectively. Also, in order to examine the construct validity of the TEI-ASF, correlations between different dimensions of TEI-ASF with scales of adolescent’s resilience was calculated. The results of confirmatory factor analysis based on AMOS software showed that 4-factor structure of the well-being, sociability, self-control and emotionality in the Iranian sample had good fit with data. Correlational analyses between different dimensions of TEI-ASF with scales of adolescent’s resilience provided initial evidence for the TEI-ASF convergent validity. Internal consistency for the well-being, sociability, self-control and emotionality subscales was 0/82, 0/73, 0/73 & 0/70 respectively. In sum, these findings provide evidence for the validity and reliability of the TEI-ASF as an instrument for measuring Trait Emotional Intelligence among Iranian gifted adolescents.
