Abstract: This research tested the hypothesis that there are interconnections between social intelligence, wisdom, values and interpersonal personality traits. To examine this possibility, 4 measures were administered to 44 university students. The data obtained revealed close mutual relations between social intelligence measured by TSIS scale (social information processing, social skills and social awareness) and wisdom-related knowledge. A higher level of wisdom-related knowledge is associated with preference of such values as benevolence, universalism and conformity. This is not the case with social intelligence in which relation to values is much more diverse. In our data, interconnections between interpersonal personality traits and measures of social intelligence and wisdom seem to be less straightforward. Despite this, dominance and extraversion create some kind of a "background" to socially intelligent behavior, while warm relations to people, without calculation and cold-heartedness, are more significant correlates of wisdom.
