The aim of this research was to empirically investigate, the impact of emotional intelligence (EI) on job satisfaction. This study considers emotional intelligence as a multidimensional construct and compares the effects of these dimensions on job satisfaction and job performance. Data obtained from 147 call center employees in Istanbul we used to examine the hypothesized relationships among study variables.
