Although emotional Quotient scores were different between the two groups, but independent t-test showed no significant differences (P> 0/05). Emotional Quotient scores in two dimensions, Flexibility (p=0.035) and self-actualization (p=0.049) were significantly higher in blinds and low vision group. Control for confounding variables such as age, gender, marital status and education level conducted using analysis of covariance and results were not significant (P>0.05).
