In the current investigation, a descriptive correlational design was applied to investigate the research aims in a manner that was methodical and scientific. The primary objective of this study was to look into whether or not there is a connection between emotional intelligence (E.I.) and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) among-st a group of students enrolled in a college or university. In order to collect the necessary information for the study, researchers used two different questionnaires: the first consisted of 80 questions relevant to the Myers- Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), and the second consisted of 33 questions centred on Emotional Intelligence (E.I.). In order to collect data, a sample of sixty master's students was selected at random from the National University of Modern Languages in the Islamabad district of Pakistan. This sample included both male and female students studying for their master's degrees. In the course of carrying out an analysis of the data, numerous statistical procedures, including the mean, the standard deviation, and the correlation, were utilized. It has been discovered that the INFJ personality type, which is characterized by introversion, intuition, feeling, and judgement, exhibits higher levels of emotional sophistication when compared to the extrovert personality type, which is characterized by extroversion, sensing, thinking, and perceiving. This is due to the fact that INFJs are more likely to rely on their own feelings and intuitions when making decisions. The primary focus of this research is on the association between emotional intelligence and the Myers-Briggs type indicator among students enrolled in university programmed.
