We conducted a cross-cultural study of the Dark Triad and Emotional Intelligence for Russian and Azerbaijani samples. After establishing the cross-cultural invariance for Emotional Intelligence questionnaire and Dirty Dozen questionnaire we compared Russian and Azerbaijani samples and found influence of sex, age and belonging to a specific sample (Moscow vs. Baku) and their interactions on Emotional Intelligence, Machiavellianism, Psychopathy, and Narcissism. The hypothesis of the relation between Emotional Intelligence and traits of Dark Triad was rejected for both samples.

Keywords: Emotional Intelligence, Dark Triad, Dirty Dozen questionnaire, Machiavellianism, Psychopathy, Narcissism
