Emotional Intelligence and Decisional Conflict Styles: Some Empirical Evidence among Italian High School Students
Di Fabio, Annamaria; Blustein, David L.
Journal of Career Assessment, v18 n1 p71-81 2010
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 = 0.76) 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.
