Abstract

In this study, firstly, we investigated relationships of gender, age and academic educational level of Iranian employees to ego defense styles and emotional intelligence with multivariate analysis of variance. Secondly, we examined the hypothesis that, whether the ego defense styles (mature, neurotic, and immature) can predict the components of Bar-On model of emotional intelligence with using multiple regression models? Results showed that age and gender produced a significant effect on the ego defense styles and age is a facilitator of stress management. Employees with different grade point averages in ego defense styles questionnaire were significantly different in relation to the five main components of the Bar-On model: intrapersonal, interpersonal, adaptability, stress management, general mood and total emotional intelligence scores
