Description The aim of this work is to study the relationship between socioemotional dimensions and decision making process in family business, associated with the profile´s configuration of decision makers. Following the socioemotional wealth theory and family business archetypes. Based on multiple case study, the findings reveal that exists a differentiated relationship between socioemotional dimensions and decision making, depending on generation number and family archetype, because their primary frame of reference is a desire to preserve and enhance the family’s socioemotional wealth. The autors propose three profiles of decision makers: SEW-Dependet, SEW-Flexible and SEW-Independent, where the SEW-Flexible is the most suitable for continuity and preservation of socioemotional wealth. 
Se estudia la relación entre las dimensiones socioemocionales y la toma de decisiones en la empresa familiar, la cual está asociada con los perfiles de los tomadores de decisiones. Siguiendo las líneas teóricas del patrimonio o riqueza socioemocional y los arquetipos de empresa familiar, se utiliza el estudio de caso múltiple. Con ello se encuentra que existe una relación diferenciada entre las dimensiones socioemocionales y la toma de decisiones, dependiendo de la generación y arquetipo familiar, donde el principal criterio para este proceso es la pérdida o conservación de la riqueza socioemocional. Se proponen tres perfiles de tomadores de decisiones: SEW-Dependiente, SEW-Flexible y SEW-Independiente; el perfil SEW-Flexible es el más adecuado para la continuidad y preservación del patrimonio socioemocional.
