Very Simple Correlation Question

Okay..I did second year stats last semester, and I remember this from the lecture, but I can't recall the reasoning...

I have a correlational study, 5 variables, 10 correlations.

When correlating emotional intelligence with rational processing, I get exactly the same p and r values as I do when correlating emotional intelligence with experiential processing. IE:

Emotional Intelligence x Rational Processing: r(46)=.43, p=.003
Emotional Intelligence X Experiential Processing: r(46)=.43, p=.003

I remember this being explained last semester, but cannot remember the explanation! I don't necessarily need the answer, just a point in the right direction.

Cheers.:p
