Abstract


Machiavellianism refers to a personality type that does not choose to be but simply is a master manipulator. They are temperamentally predisposed to be calculating, conniving and deceptive. Essentially amoral, they use other people as stepping stones to reach their goals. Emotional maturity is a process in which the personality is continuously striving for greater sense of emotional health, both intra - physically and intra-personally. Self-control is defined as the ability to control one's emotion, behavior, and desires in the face of external demands, to function in society. The study comprised of 68 office workers of 23 60 years of age. Simple Random sampling was used to collect the data. The tools used in the study include Mach IV Scale, Emotional Maturity Scale, and Brief Self-Control Scale. The statistical technique such as moderator regression, correlation and t test were carried out to analyze the calculated data. The main objective of the study was to analyze the moderating effect of Self-control on the relationship between Emotional maturity and Machiavellianism. The result shows that Self-control is negatively moderated on the relation between Emotional maturity and Machiavellianism. The study also got the evidence for negative correlation between self-control and Machiavellianism. The study implicates the importance of self-control which is essential for reducing deceptive and manipulative behavior for making success at career.
