The Psychology of adjustment through the lifespan : emotions, age, experience and cross-cultural adjustment

Abstract : Grounded in lifespan development theory and more particularly socioemotional selectivity theory, this paper attempts to shed additional light on one of the under-researched and inconclusive areas in expatriation research, namely what moderating effects age have on the relation between emotional intelligence (EI) and cross-cultural adjustment (CCA) of expatriates on assignment. We tested our hypotheses through hierarchical regression models using data from 254 expatriate managers. Our analyses show a positive moderating effect of age on the relation between emotional intelligence and two facets of adjustment: general living and interactional adjustments and concluded that age and experience are not fully substitutable.
