This study aimed at identifying the predictive ability of empathy, and perceived self-effiacy in emotional intelligence among students with visual impairment. The sample of the study consisted of (120) students with visual impairment encolled in public school. The measure of emotional intelligence was developed, consisting of four sub-dimensions covering 30 paragraphs. The empathy scale was developed from (22) paragraphs in its final form, and the measured self-efficacy measure was (36). This was followed by the application of the scale on the sample of the study and the results were analyzed. The results of the study revealed a moderate level of empathy among students with visual impairments. The average score was (2.91). The results also revealed a high level of perceived self-efficacy. The average of the total score was (3.13), and a high level of intelligence (3.18).
The overall correlation coefficient between empiric and self-efficacy measures was (0.592), which means that (59.2%) of the variation in emotional intelligence is explained by the measure of empathy and perceived self-efficacy.
