ABSTRACT:
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to validate the Malay version of the Emotional Intelligence Scale (EIS-M) using a Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) among Sarawak University football players. Method: A total of 321 male university students in Sarawak volunteered and participated in the validation study on EIS-M with a mean age of 18 - 23 years old (20.13 ± 1.44). Results: The standard procedure of forward-backward translation method was performed to translate the English version of the EIS into the Malay language version. Data were analysed using Mplus 8.0. The Emotional Intelligence Scale Malay version (EIS-M) hypothesized measurement model included 33 items and 6 factors: Appraisal of other emotions (7 items), Appraisal of own emotions (5 items), Regulation (5 items), Social Skills (5 items), Utilization of emotions (7 items), and Optimism (4 items). The results of the confirmatory factor analysis displayed an acceptable fit to the initial hypothesized model of EIS-M with the data (RMSEA = .043, CFI = .904, TLI = .90, SRMR = .055). All the factor loading ranged from .51 to .87. The EIS-M had good internal consistency. The overall Cronbach’s alpha (a) values for the EIS-M questionnaire was a = .955, with subscale Appraisal of other emotions (item 1 to 7), a = .796, Appraisal of own emotions (items 8 to 12), a = .886, Regulation (item 13 to 17), a = .882, Social skills (item 18 to 22), a = .820 , Utilization of emotions (item 23 to 29), a = .929, and Optimism (item 30 to 33), a = .762. Conclusion: Overall, based on the fit indices and internal consistency values, the EIS-M appears to be a valid and reliable instrument for measuring emotional intelligence in the context of the six factors mentioned.
