Munazza Zahra, Daisy Mui Hung Kee, Muhammad Usman.

Abstract
The paper aims to clarify that a happy approach may help in managing own emotions alongside
motivating, facilitating and understanding other’s emotion among students. The data collection instrument was
self-reported Wong and Law Emotional Intelligence Scale and Multi-dimension Sense of Humour Scale to
measure emotional intelligence and sense humour respectively. A correlation and regression analysis and
“descriptive statistics” were implemented to examine the variables of the study. The findings of the study
suggests that having a decent idea of humour is correlated to “emotional intelligence”. Also the two dimensions
of sense of humour; humour creation and performance and social uses of humour are positively linked to
dimensions of emotional intelligence. The results of chosen research approach may lack generalisability. A
small sample of students from three different universities scarcely allows for true representation of whole
population. Therefore, researchers are encouraged to use large number of sample to test the proposed
propositions further.
The findings of the study can be helpful to researchers, practitioners and policy makers in better understanding
of the role of humour and emotional intelligence among university students. This paper satisfies a recognised
need to study the role of humour in emotional intelligence.

Key words: Sense of humour; Emotional intelligence; Pakistani students
