Abstract (Original Language): 
Emotional intelligence seems to be everywhere. In recent years, it has emerged as a critical factor for sustaining high achievement, retention, and positive behaviour as well as improving life success. Emotional intelligence (EI) and personality traits play a major role in maintaining work effectiveness and efficiency in any organization. The purpose of this study is to see the impact of emotional intelligence on personality traits of studentteachers who aspire to become effective teachers. A total of 600 student-teachers of various colleges of education affiliated to University of Jammu, Jammu were selected as a sample randomly for the purpose of classification in low and high emotional intelligent student-teachers. Finally 80 student-teachers (40 low and 40 high emotionally intelligent) were selected randomly by using P40 and P60 percentiles. To test hypothesis t-test was used. Results of this study indicated significant differences between high and low emotional intelligent student teachers on personality factors.
