This study deals with clarification of the relationship between Emotional Intelligence (EI) and decision making styles (rational, intuitive, dependant, spontaneous and avoidant) in N.I.O.P.D.C‘s managers. A collection of 55 managers were tested. Emotional intelligence was measured by Sheering’s EI questionnaire, and Scott and Bruce’s decision making style questionnaire was used for identifying decision making styles of managers. A number of managerial professionals were investigated and the content validity of emotional intelligence and decision making style questionnaires was confirmed. Test of Cronbach Alpha ( for decision making style questionnaire) and ( for emotional intelligence questionnaire) indicated that reliability of these questionnaires are acceptable too. Because all the variables are normal. Pearson correlation was used to test the relationship between emotional intelligence and each of the decision making styles. Analyzing the results revealed that there are negative relationships between emotional intelligence and each of rational and avoidant decision making styles and there is a positive relationship between emotional intelligence and intuitive decision making style of managers. This study didn’t find any relationship between emotional intelligence and dependant and spontaneous decision making styles of managers. By using logistic regression, predictor models of accepted hypothesis are also presented.
