The present investigation is to determine the relationship between Emotional Intelligence, Locus of control and job satisfaction. The purposive random sampling technique was used in the study for data collection. Sample of present investigation is n=70. The following tools were used in the study. Trait emotional Intelligence- short form (Copper & Petrides, 2010; Petrides and Furnham, 2006), Rotter’s locus of control (Dr. Anand Kumar, Dr. S.N.Srivastava, 1985), Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (David J. Weiss, et al, 1967). Descriptive statistics, correlation and stepwise multiple regression was used. Findings show that when stepwise multiple regression was applied, well-being appeared to be the significant predictor of job satisfaction. Multiple correlation value is 0.266 and t-value for well-being is 2.27. Thomas A. Wright and Douglas G. Bonett (2007) found in their study that job satisfaction was very strongly as well as negatively related to turnover when well-being was low. Wright, DG Bonett et al. (2007) found that job satisfaction and psychological well-being were significantly associated.
