Personality could be understood as a psychological system that emerges from the interaction between individual and environment, which evolves permanently mediating the intrapersonal functioning (such as self-perception, self-esteem, self-knowledge and self-regulation) and personal adaptation. On the other hand, the theoretical consolidation of the burnout in sport's psychology field is increasing. However, there is still relatively scarce investigation about the relationship between is study aims at analyzing the existence of the relation between levels of Perceived Emotional Intelligence (PEI) and burnout's symptoms, considering the moderator role of personality. Participants were 201 athletes that completed the TMMS-24 for the measurement of PEI, the Neo FFI for personality assessment, and IBD-R to establish burnout's levels. The results of this research suggest that the relationship between emotional attention and emotional exhaustion is mediated by neuroticism and conscientiousness factors.
