Abstract/Artist Statement

A sample of 628 college students tests how emotional intelligence (EQ) affects student participation in risky behaviors. It is anticipated that emotional intelligence negatively correlates with participation in risky behaviors. Examples of risky behaviors include not wearing a seatbelt or exceeding the speed limit while driving, engaging in pre-marital or unprotected sex, smoking marijuana, driving under the influence of alcohol, binge drinking and smoking cigarettes. The cross-sectional survey included college students from two universities in Central California.
