From among 486 physical education teachers the sample of study was 215 teachers which selected through random sampling proportional method. The research instruments were Sibirya Sharing emotional intelligence questionnaire. At last, collected data were analyzed through descriptive and inferential method such as T test.

The variable t is also observed at the level of consciousness (p < 0.05) than the critical value table (1.96) is larger, The null hypothesis is rejected and the self variable with mean 2.90 at the lower limit of the median is statistically significant, results also indicate that the ratio of the self-control variable alpha level of 0.05 tables of critical values (1.96) shorter so the null hypothesis is confirmed. The results also indicate that the calculated t value for the variable EI PE teacher at an alpha level of 0.05 tables of critical values (1.96) was greater than the null hypothesis is rejected. In other words, 95% can be confidently stated that the emotional intelligence of men over women.
