Emotional intelligence deficits are considered an important factor in the analysis of crime causation (Fisher et al.,1999; Carroll et al., 2006). In the case of property crimes (motivated by financial gain), the relationship between alow level of emotional intelligence and the criminal act seems to be less obvious than for violent crimes. Moreover, research results obtained in the last few years, have not explained this issue. Three groups of criminals took part in this study: 54 juvenile robbers, 52 adults who were serving sentences for street robbery and 30 prisoners sentenced for theft. Research technique used: the Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire INTE by Jaworowska and Matczak (2001). The findings show that the subjects had an average level of emotional intelligence. No statistically significant differences between the studied groups were obtained.
