Emotional intelligence: new perspectives in career decision-making - This study aims to analyze thoroughly the role of emotional intelligence in career decision- making. One hundred thirty-four university students (median age = 23.40, SD = 2.50) were given the General Decision Making Style (GDMS) and the Bar-On Emotional Quotient Inventory: Short (Bar-On EQ-i:S). The emotional intelligence dimensions that have a greater impact on decisional styles result: Adaptability for Rational style and Spontaneous style; Intrapersonal for Dependent style and Avoidant style; Interpersonal for Intuitive style. The results provide a more in-depth look at the relationship between the emotional intelligence construct and decisional styles, delineating new perspectives of research and intervention. Keywords: decisional styles, emotional intelligence, career choice process.
