Abstract: The present study aims to identify different profiles in emotional intelligence (EI) and self-concept of the participants with disabilities according to functionality of spinal cord injury. In addition, significant differences in self-concept domains among profiles previously identified are also analysed. The Trait Meta-Mood Scale-24 (TMMS-24) and AF5 Self-concept Questionnaire were administered to 98 participants with physical disabilities by traffic accidents (42 tetraplegics and 56 paraplegics). Cluster analyses allowed identifying three different EI profiles: a group of participants with low EI profile, a group with predominance of high emotional repair and regulation and, finally, a group of participants with high EI. Results also revealed significant statistical differences in most domains of self-concept among profiles. Results suggest the need of going in depth on EI knowledge and design enhancement of self-concept programs for people with spinal cord injury.
