Author(s): LR Sinchana and Dr. Molly Joy
Abstract: Spiritual intelligence is associated with a deep understanding of the inner self and the feeling of connectedness with a supreme self. Spiritual intelligence has been associated to well-being since a very long time and has been established through existing literature. Resilience is one such integral part of our well-being. Resilience, in general terms relates to the ability to bounce back from stressful and adverse situations. This ability is crucial to every human being and especially at the young adult stage where the presence or absence of resilience works manifold. This study aimed at understanding if there is any relationship between spiritual intelligence and resilience among 70 college going students. Through statistical analysis, Pearson’s correlation (0.282) at 0.05 significance level suggested positive correlation between spiritual intelligence and resilience.
