This study investigated relationships among personality, emotional intelligence, and work stress. The sample consisted of 395 workers in the semiconductor industry employed by firms located at Hsinchu Science Park in Taiwan. SPSS was used to calculate descriptive statistics, Pearson’s correlations, and multiple regressions. Factors related to the personal backgrounds of workers and work stress served as dependent variables, traditional Chinese personality traits served as the independent variables, and emotional intelligence served as the mediating variable. Results showed that the emotional intelligence of workers in the semiconductor industry significantly influenced perceptions of work stress. Thus, emotional intelligence represents a valid mediator between Chinese personality traits and perceptions of work stress.
