Abstract: This study contributes to our understanding of the role performed by emotional intelligence in between self-evaluative traits and emotional well-being. We developed and tested a mediation model linking self-evaluative traits through emotional intelligence on predicting emotional and spiritual well-being. Drawing on our model posits that the effects of self-evaluative such as self-esteem, self-efficacy and locus of control are mediated by emotional intelligence on generating emotional and spiritual well-being. Overall data from 262 nurses from various government hospitals in Pondicherry Union territory support this model. This suggests that incorporation of emotional intelligence with self-evaluative traits on generating emotional and spiritual well-being is essential. Implication, directions of future research or discussed.

Keywords: emotional intelligence; self-evaluative traits; self-esteem; self-efficacy; locus of control; emotional well-being.
