The present study focused on the translation of the Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire (TEIQue) to the Turkish speaking people. The TEIQue was completed by 500 undergraduate students created from two different sample. Study followed two step as linguistic equivalence and validity-reliability analyses. Psychometric analysis provided evidence in support of the reliability of the TEIQue (at the facet, factor, and global levels) and the confirmed four-factor structure (Well-Being, Sociability, Self-Control, and Emotionality). This solution accounted for 66.3% of the total variance, and factor loading was .493-816. With regard to CFA and internal consistency of four factors and Global TEIQue, the Turkish version showed acceptable psychometrics and was in concordance with the original version. This study also found significant sex differences among factors and Global TEI. Female participants had higher scores on Wellbeing, Emotionality, and Global TEI. TEIQue would contribute as the base for further studies, and literature by adding data from Turkey.
