An attempt is made in the present investigation to study the impact of gender, emotional intelligence and self-efficacy on sources and intensity of stress. Gender, emotional intelligence and self-efficacy are the independent variables and sources and intensity of stress is the dependent variable. It was hypothesized that, gender, emotional intelligence, and self-efficacy would significantly influence the sources and intensity of stress.200 males and 200 females with high and low emotional intelligence and high and low self efficacy constituted the sample of the study. Since there are three independent variables and each is varied into two ways a 2 x 2 x 2 factorial design is employed. The obtained data from the 400 sample are subjected to analysis of variance to test the hypotheses. It is found that adults with low emotional intelligence and low self efficacy experience high intercity of stress, and social, family, psychological, financial, health and professional problems are the potential sources of stress for them, where as there is no significant difference between male and female adults in their sources and intensity of stress.
