PULIDO ACOSTA, Federico  and  HERRERA CLAVERO, Francisco. Predictors of anxiety, happiness and emotional intelligence in a multicultural context. Cienc. Psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.12, n.2, pp.195-204. ISSN 1688-4094.

This work has as main objective to analyze the predictors of Anxiety, Happiness and EI, according to age, gender, culture and socioeconomic and cultural, as well as the relationships that could be given between all the variables. To make it possible we focused on 811 participants; 71.6% of the total were Muslims and 28.4% belonged to the Christian religion, 46.1% were male and 53.9% female. The techniques used in this survey were the STAIC (Spielberger, 2001), a Happiness questionnaire, as well as an EI questionnaire built for its use. The results reflect that the predictors of Anxiety are Age and Gender. For Happiness, are Age, Culture, Socioeconomic and cultural and Gender. We found a strong and inverse relationship between Anxiety and Happiness. EI predictors are age, culture and gender. There is no statistically significant relationship between Anxiety and Emotional Intelligence, but we found it between Emotional Intelligence and Happiness
