There has been limited research on sources of emotional intelligence. The knowledge how it developes is based mainly on theoretical assumptions. Researchers believe that many interacting factors, like environmental and biological, play role in development of emotional intelligence (Matthews, Zeidner i Roberts, 2002; Zeidner, 2008). In this paper, the role of temperamental traits in development of emotional intelligence was discussed. The results of presented researches suggest that some temperamental traits may influence the development of emotional intelligence. They can modify intensity of socio-emotional practice and processing of emotional signals.
