Abstract:This thesis aims to explore the relationship between Emotion Regulation (ER) and arousal. Regularly held team meeting of several teams were videotaped. The videotapes of 6 teams were observed and verbal behaviours related to Emotional Intelligence (EI) were coded, using a detailed verbal codebook for EI. The arousal data is measured through extensive EDA-analysis, which is compared to the observational data from the videotapes. The Skin Conductance Responses (SCR) that follow from this comparing are later on checked for correlation with both the frequency and duration of behaviours related to ER. Different demographic groups and the differences between these groups for ER and SCR’s are also assessed . The present study found a negative significant correlation between ER related behaviours and SCR’s. There were no significant differences found between the demographic groups. Further research possibilities include the development of a non-verbal codebook for EI, meaning more behaviours can be analyzed in future research. Lastly, a recommendation would be to repeat this same research with a larger sample size.
