Social Intelligence is of more importance in the present life style due to growing tensions stresses and various complexities. This study examines the social intelligence of adolescents in relation to their age and ordinal position. Adolescence is considered as the most important intermediate period of life, as adolescents face an intense disorder because of the cognitive, biological and social changes taking place in this period. Social intelligence is an aggregated measure of self and social awareness, evolved social beliefs and attitudes, and a capacity to manage complex social change. The study was conducted in Hisar district of Haryana state where two Government Senior Secondary Schools from rural area and three from urban area were selected. Self-prepared questionnaire was used to delineate personal variables and Social Intelligence Scale (SIS) by Chadha and Ganesan (2004) was used for assessing social intelligence. The results revealed that statistically significant differences were observed in overall social intelligence on the basis of age and non- significant differences observed in ordinal position. Although, mean scores showed that older adolescents were comparatively better than younger adolescents in overall social intelligence.
