Abstract

The idea of thinking in ‚Äč‚Äčarchitectural design has long been one of the hallmarks of this process. On the other hand, according to the new definitions of emotional intelligence in the field of psychology, it can be concluded that if the parameters of this phenomenon are used positively and effectively, it is possible to promote the architectural design process among architecture students. Thus, identifying the related areas between emotional intelligence and interactive thinking in the architectural design process can play a significant role in promoting the creativity of future architects. For this purpose, the present study investigates the mutual relationship between emotional intelligence and interactive thinking in order to promote creativity in the architectural design process. To this end, after identifying the necessary infrastructures to develop either of these two phenomena, a mutual relationship between these two phenomena is discussed. It should be noted that the present study is descriptive and analytical and the evaluation is done through a questionnaire among some students of architecture at Damavand University. The results indicate that there is a significant relationship between emotional intelligence parameters and interactive thinking prerequisites for developing creative skills in architectural design process.
