Connectivity between the psychological boundaries of the individual with emotional intelligence and self-relationship in adolescence



In this paper, the results of an empirical study are presented, the main tasks of which were the identification, description and interpretation of significant (significance level p = 0,05) correlation links between the features of psychological boundaries, emotional intelligence and self-relationship in adolescence. The sample consisted of 50 students of different courses studying at the Faculty of Legal Psychology of the Moscow State Psychological and Pedagogical University. The main hypothesis is the assumption of the existence of significant connections between the various functions of psychological boundaries, the characteristics of emotional intelligence, self-relationship and, in general, the individual psychological characteristics of the individual. In the course of the study, a large number of positive and negative connections were obtained. In general, it can be said that young men, who have a high level of psychological boundary, have a higher level of emotional intelligence, while young men with a low level of psychological boundaries have a low level of emotional intelligence, as well as a tendency to increase personal anxiety and a high degree of self-blame.
