The aim of the study was to determine gender and age differences in depression, emotional intelligence and locus of control and to investigate the relationship between these variables. The study included 426 participants (275 women and 151 men) age range 20-60 years. Self-rating Depression Scale, Schutte Emotional Intelligence Scale and Rotter’s Locus of Control Scale were administered. The results showed significant gender differences in all three variables, whereas age differences were not significant. Women attained significantly higher scores than men in all three measures, which was expected. Results of hierarchical regression analysis showed a significant multiple correlation of gender, emotional intelligence and locus of control with the results on Self-rating Depression Scale. Male participants, people with higher emotional intelligence and less external people reported lower levels of depression.
