Consumer Emotional Intelligence: Exploring Shades of Green and Grey

The role of consumer emotional intelligence, the ability to deal with emotions, has been much ignored in ethical and green consumer behaviors. We study the associations between EI, Machiavellianism, ethical and recycling beliefs. Findings indicate that EI predicts ethical and environmental beliefs positively, even after controlling for Machiavellianism.
