Introduction and Aims: Narcissism is a personality disorder that is conceptualized as the excessive love of self and appears as a great feeling of self, more merit, and superiority. This study aimed to evaluate the prediction of depression with emotional intelligence and critical thinking in people with a narcissistic personality disorder.
Materials and Methods: The statistical population in this descriptive-correlational study included all people with narcissistic personality disorder who were referred to Nik Amal Psychiatric Clinic, Tehran, Iran, in 2022. In total, 130 people were selected using the available sampling method. Ames' narcissistic personality questionnaires, Beck Depression Inventory, Schering Emotional Intelligence Test, and California Critical Thinking Skills Test were administered to collect data. Data analysis was performed using correlational and multivariate regression tests in SPSS software (version 23).
Results: The results showed that emotional intelligence and critical thinking were negatively and significantly associated with depression (P<0.01).

Conclusion: To reduce the problem of depression in people with narcissistic personality disorder, it is recommended to increase emotional intelligence and critical thinking
