A cross-sectional survey design was used for this study. A sample (n = 341) was taken from Economical Science students from a higher-education institution. the results obtained using the cross-sectional design supported a six-dimensional factor structure of the SEIS. the six factors are Positive Affect, Emotion-Others, happy Emotions, Emotions-Own, Non-verbal Emotions and Emotional Management. A multi-analysis of variance (MANOVA) was used to determine differences in terms of biographical data. the results indicated significant differences between gender and language groups.
