Given the importance of the emotional and sensory processing of information in education across different genders and ages, this study intends to examine the differences in emo-sensory intelligence among high school teachers in terms of gender and age. The ability to handle and manage emotions caused by sensory stimulation is referred to as emo-sensory intelligence. It is held that it can be a significant factor in teacher success, which might be affected by gender and age. To this end, this study surveyed 315 Iranian instructors using the emo-sensory intelligence scale. The results of statistical analyses showed that female teachers showed greater emo-sensory intelligence levels than male teachers. Furthermore, teachers between the ages of 30 and 40 had stronger emo-sensory intelligence compared to other age groups. The findings highlighted the importance of developing emo-sensory intelligence in teachers, particularly through specific strategies for male and younger teachers. In the end, the implications were presented, and some suggestions were made.
