Do Emotions and Emotional intelligence affect decision-making performance?

Link al seminario:

This study is focused on the analysis of a series of elements which might favor people’s capacities to set goals in areas in which they are personally invested in making right decisions. Focusing on decision makers’ personal traits, in particular, emotional intelligence and mood, the empirical study carried out to this end reveals that participants’ level of emotional intelligence has an important positive effect on this capacity, which nonetheless is hampered in the case of individuals with markedly negative affect. We test our hypothesis in two four phased independent studies with 174 university students.
