Abstract

Background and aims: The cognitive abilities were included functions such as planning, attention, response inhibition, problem solving and cognitive flexibility. The aim of the present study was to investigate effects of worry and rumination on cognitive abilities based on emotional intelligence. Methods: The present study was a correlational and cross-sectional research. For this purpose, from the statistical population of the urmia University students, 340 were selected by multi-stage cluster random sampling. Then, the worry, rumination, emotional intelligence and cognitive abilities questionnaire were distributed among research participants to respond. Collected data were analyzed by using descriptive and correlational indicators, and structural equation modeling. Results: Results indicated that there is a significant negative correlation between worry and rumination and a positive correlation between emotional intelligence with cognitive abilities. Also, path analysis model indicated mediating role of emotional intelligence between worry and rumination with cognitive abilities. Conclusion: The results support the hypothesis that worry and rumination lead to disruption of cognitive abilities and high emotional intelligence can have a moderating role in this regard.
