Abstract

This study assessed the relationship between emotional intelligence and decisional conflict styles. Five hundred and twenty-eight Italian high school students (median age = 18; SD = .76) were given the Melbourne Decision Making Questionnaire (MDMQ) and the Bar-On Emotional Quotient Inventory: short (Bar-On EQ-i:S). The Intrapersonal dimension of emotional intelligence emerged as the best inverse predictor of nonadaptive styles, whereas the Adaptability dimension was the best predictor of the adaptive style of vigilance; the Interpersonal dimension of emotional intelligence was associated with the nonadaptive styles. The results provide an in-depth look at the relationship between the emotional intelligence construct and the decisional conflict styles, yielding new areas of research, assessment, and intervention.
