Abstract: This research examined a model proposing that experiential and rational dual processing styles influence level of emotional intelligence, which in turn influences subjective well-being. One hundred and fifty-four adult participants completed measures of rational and experiential processing, emotional intelligence, affect and life satisfaction. Structural equation modeling identified a best fit model for predicting latent well-being. Experiential and rationale processing both significantly predicted level of emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence in turn was strongly associated with well-being. Emotional intelligence mediated between the processing styles and well-being, with experiential processing contributing some variance not accounted for by emotional intelligence.
