Abstract

This is a meta-analysis of emotional intelligence (EI) and Dark Triad traits. EI is significantly and negatively related to Machiavellianism (overall EI: ρ̅̂ = -0.29; ability EI: ρ̅̂ = -0.31; trait EI: ρ̅̂ = -0.27) and to psychopathy (overall EI: ρ̅̂ = -0.17; ability EI: ρ̅̂ = -0.21; trait EI: ρ̅̂ = -0.16). EI is not related to narcissism (overall EI: ρ̅̂ = 0.02; ability EI: ρ̅̂ = -0.10; trait EI: ρ̅̂ = 0.05). The types of EI did not moderate the relationships between EI and Dark Triad traits. EI measures and measures of narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy exhibited significant moderator effects. Using EI scales may be a practical way to screen out candidates high in Machiavellianism and psychopathy.
