Abstract:

The relationships were analyzed among emotional intelligence (EI), personality traits, and psychological well-being in undergraduates. In addition, the predictive capacity of EI and personality traits was analyzed. Results showed that low scores in neuroticism and high scores in extraversion are the dimensions of personality most related to all the psychological well-being scales, and also the best predictors of psychological well-being. Furthermore, high scores in clarity and emotional repair were found to be two consistent predictors for all the scales of psychological well-being, after controlling for personality factors. These results confirm the prognostic significance for EI on psychological well-being.
