This study investigated the relationship between emotional intelligence (EI) and burnout among 104 Iranian EFL teachers. In addition, teachers’ differences on EI and burnout were examined with respect to demographic variables. The participants were administered EI and Burnout questionnaires. The results obtained through using Pearson Product-Moment Correlation showed that there were significant negative correlations between EI and burnout, burnout, teaching experience and age and positive correlations between teachers’ EI, teaching experience, and age. Finally, using T-Test, the researchers found no significant differences in teachers’ EI and burnout with respect to gender. Implications of the study are discussed, and suggestions for further research are made.
