Introduction & Objective: Thousands of people undergo cosmetic surgery every year, and the popularity of this type of surgery has grown significantly in recent years. Emotional intelligence may play a role in the demand for cosmetic surgery. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the validity and reliability of Golman's emotional intelligence questionnaire in patients referring to the beauty clinic. By improving this questionnaire appropriate to the target community, it is possible to understand the relationship between emotional intelligence and the desire to perform cosmetic surgery.
Materials & Methods: The present descriptive-analytical study was performed on 700 applicants for cosmetic surgery referred to Hazrat Fatemeh Medical Center in Tehran in 1397. After completing the Golman Emotional Intelligence questionnaire by the samples, the reliability of the questionnaire was assessed by Cronbach's alpha and its validity was investigated using confirmatory factor analysis using diagonal weighted least square method. The R3.6.3 software and a lavaan package were used for statistical analysis.
Results: The goodness of fit of confirmatory factor analysis model was unacceptable and 9 questions did not significantly explain the variance of emotional intelligence questionnaire components. After removing those 9 questions, the goodness of fit of the model was improved and the reliability of the whole questionnaire increased from 0.84 to 0.87.
Conclusions: Some questions did not explain the variance of the components, which either had to be corrected or removed from the questionnaire. Using an improper tool can have misleading results. Therefore, it is recommended to use the modified Golman Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire, which is standardized in the target population.
