Background and Objective: Spirituality and spiritual intelligence are important elements in individual and organizational life representing a set of capabilities, capacities, and spiritual sources. The purpose of this study was to investigate the mediating role of spiritual intelligence in the relationship between perfectionism and life expectancy among the administrators of Islamic Azad University, Mazandaran, Iran.
Materials and Methods: The study population of this descriptive-correlational study were all the administrators and deputies (n=542) of departments, faculties, and groups of Islamic Azad Universities of Mazandaran. A total of 225 participants were selected by random sampling method. The data were collected using Asadpour Perfectionism (2016), Schneider et al. Life Expectancy (1991), and Badie et al. Spiritual Intelligence (2010) questionnaires. The data were analyzed using one-variable regression tests and structural equations.
Results: The obtained results of the present study showed the significant and direct effect of perfectionism variables on spiritual intelligence and spiritual intelligence on life expectancy. In addition, perfectionism through the mediating role of spiritual intelligence had an indirect effect on life expectancy. Furthermore, about 56% of the spiritual intelligence variance and 25% of the life expectancy variance were explained by perfectionism. Moreover, approximately 88% of the life expectancy variance was justified by spiritual intelligence.
Conclusion: The education and improvement of spiritual intelligence, perfectionism, and life expectancy facilitate decision-making and enhance mental health.
