This paper stress the importance of strengthening emotional intelligence (EI) among youths. Human capital resources targeting youths are one of the main thrusts of national development in Malaysia especially from the political, economic, social and educational aspects. The main target of this study was to test the presence of the significance impact of EI competence on the constructs determining youths’ political behaviour. A total of 313 students from four public universities in Malaysia were selected as the sample. The Emotional Intelligence Self-Description Inventory (EISDI), and Political Behaviour Questionnaire (PBQ) were used to obtain data which was analysed using regression analysis. The findings showed that the hypotheses were accepted, i.e. there is an impact of EI competence on the political behaviour which significantly influenced EI on the constructs of political behaviour namely conservativism and nationalism. Hence, EI can be construed to be a determining factor in behaviour and ideology that signifies political maturity among Malaysian youth.

To show that six common mistakes in initiatives to improve conduct hindered the application of psychological and sociological empirical evidence; to propose a novel method that integrates existing behavioural research trends. The role of health actions in the root of the global non-communicable disease outbreak has been seen to contribute to attempts to alter conduct. It should be remembered that most attempts to improve health habits have been quite effective. This paper argues that debates on behaviour change in political decision-making contain six widespread mistakes, and that these errors have made the business of behaviour change far more complicated than appropriate. Overview on strategies and procedures that improve behaviour. The explanations why awareness and knowledge of actions have changed too far in the prevention of tobacco, food and physical inactivity disorders are considered and an alternate solution is introduced. This model takes advantage of emerging advances in behavioural research. The previous psychological and sociological situations must be recognized and psychological theories about the automated and reflective processes should be coupled with sociological ideas on social practice.
