This study aims to take an in-depth look at the role of personality traits and emotional intelligence in relation to organizational justice. The Italian version of the Organizational Justice Scale (OJS), the Italian version of the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire Revised Short Form (EPQ-RS) and the Italian version of the Bar-On Emotional Quotient Inventory (Bar-On EQ-i) were administered to 241 nurses. The emotional intelligence dimensions add a significant percentage of incremental variance compared to variances due to personality traits with respect to organizational justice. The results highlight the role of emotional intelligence and its relationship with organizational justice, offering new research and intervention perspectives.
