Abstract. This paper presents a comprehensive review of theoretical approaches to emotional intelligence as well as the study of personality traits in psychology. Emotional intelligence is a broad concept that includes many aspects such as understanding emotions, emotion regulation and control, assimilative thinking, and ways of expressing emotions. In today’s world, emotional intelligence occupies an important place in human life. This is because the pace of life is continuously accelerating and people are faced with more and more information and situations that require quick and appropriate responses. The development of emotional intelligence plays a key role in the formation of both personal and professional qualities of an individual. In this regard, a high level of emotional intelligence development is necessary for successful functioning in society. Emotional intelligence is known to be an important aspect of personal development and has a significant impact on success in various spheres of life, including personal relationships, work and study. Therefore, understanding what personal qualities influence the formation of emotional intelligence in schoolchildren is of great practical importance. Based on the results of the study, it is possible to develop programs and techniques aimed at the formation of emotional intelligence in schoolchildren, which can lead to the improvement of the quality of education and social adaptation of students. The study of personal qualities of schoolchildren as a factor in the formation of their emotional intelligence is relevant in the light of the importance of emotional intelligence for personal and professional development, as well as for improving the quality of education and social adaptation of students. In addition, modern school faces a number of problems related to the emotional well-being of students, such as stress, anxiety, depression and behavioral problems. Therefore, the study of personality traits that contribute to the formation of emotional intelligence in schoolchildren can help educators and psychologists to develop programs and methods to support students’ emotional well-being and improve their academic achievement. The studied research shows that personality traits such as self-motivation, perseverance and self-control, resilience, leadership aspirations and social competence are positively correlated with emotional intelligence in schoolchildren, while empathy and sense of risk have more mixed results.

Keywords: emotional intelligence, schoolchildren, personality traits, social competence.
