Van Dijk

It is postulated that the cornerstone of the 7 intelligences proposed by Gardner, found their livelihood in three first intelligences, which are described below: 1. intelligence cognitive, that is defined as the ability to obtain, store, combine, process and extract information that supports a convenient and helpful decision-making (Cortese and Gaynor, 1999). 2. Emotional intelligence, which is defined as the ability to know, directing and controlling both own emotions and those of others (Goleman, 1995). 3. Creative intelligence, which is defined as the ability to recognize the weaknesses within the own habits that every one has installed in their daily practices, (2001 Gaynor). In another vein, with regard to the term emotion Goleman (1996), used it to refer to a feeling and their typical thoughts associated with psychological and biological States and; a variety of tendencies to act, (p.

21). For his part, Van Dijk (2000) expresses that the emotions have mental dimensions (thoughts and beliefs) obvious. In this sense, argues that emotions may involve the (mental) interpretations of the State’s mood or State of the body, i.e., an emotion usually has an object, that is what drives us, and if you know what that object, emotions and beliefs must be closely related. Hence, at any level of analysis also emotions and affections correspond to the areas of belief, (p. 38). Villoria (1987) argues that the natural emotions of human beings are the following: pleasure, anger, pain (sadness), fear and joy. It also raises Villoria, in relation to the manifestation of emotions as a complex process, that all human beings flow satisfactorily and natural to express themselves.
