Tarek A. El Badawy, Mariam M. Magdy


Research on impression management is still in the infancy stage. The aim of this study was to explore the interaction between impression management and two organizational variables, namely emotional intelligence and locus of control. A sample of 106 participants was extracted from the Egyptian working population. The analysis was conducted using Spearman rho’s. Results indicated insignificant correlation between impression management and emotional intelligence. A weak association was found between impression management and external locus of control and an insignificant, yet negative, correlation was found between emotional intelligence and locus of control. Further analyses, implications and future research recommendations are provided.
