Abstract: 

This study investigated the mediating role of resilience in the relationship between emotional and cognitive intelligence and life satisfaction. Participants were 557 girls (284) and boys (293), selected from high schools in Shiraz. Participants complete the Conner-Davidson’s Resilience Scale (2003), Shutte’s emotional Intelligence Scale (1999), Satisfaction With Life Scale (Diener et al 1985), and Scale 3 of Cattell Culture Fair Intelligence Test. To examine reliability of measures, Cronbach alpha coefficient, and to determine validity, factor analysis were used. The path diagram of the hypothetical model was tested by simultaneous regression analysis, according to steps recommended by Baron and Kenny (1986). Results showed that: (a) emotional and cognitive intelligence, were weak as direct predictors of life satisfaction, (b) emotional intelligence in comparison to cognitive intelligence was a strong predictor of resilience and (c) resilience, was a mediator between both kinds of intelligence and life satisfaction. Findings also reveled that the relationship between the model’s variables weren’t completely consistent with the whole group for girls. Implications and suggestions for future studies are discussed.
