    Aims of the study The aim of this research is to examine the relationship of trait emotional intelligence with accuracy of emotion recognition and positive emotions in real life social interaction. Emotion recognition is a central part of emotional intelligence but the relationship between trait emotional intelligence and emotion recognition has not been examined in real life social interaction. In addition, the relationship between partners emotional intelligence and different positive emotions of the actor have not been previously studied. Methods The sample of the study consisted of 43 real supervisor-follower-dyads from Finnish organizations. The dyads had a 30-minute semi-structured performance review discussion after which they replied to self-assessments. The data is part of LeadEmo – Edistynyt menetelmä esimiesten tunneosaamisen kehittämiseksi – research project from years 2011-2013. Trait emotional intelligence was measured with Self-Report Emotional Intelligence Test self-assessment, emotion recognition accuracy by self-other agreement of valence and arousal and experience of pleasantness of the interaction by subparts of PANAS-X serenity and joviality scales. The data was analysed as structural equation models according to a dyadic analysis method called Actor Partner Interdependence Model. Results No relationship was found between trait emotional intelligence and emotion recognition of valence or arousal. Follower trait emotional intelligence was positively related to supervisor joviality and supervisor trait emotional intelligence was nearly statistically significantly positively related to follower joviality. Neither partners’ trait emotional intelligence was related to actor serenity.
