Abstract: Success in academic learning depends not only on the level of cognitive development, but also on the level of development of emotional intelligence, on the extent to which the student manages to be flexible in thoughts and emotions, in order to optimally adapt to situations. No matter how creative or intelligent we are, regardless of our personality type, emotional agility, that is, how we manage our inner world - thoughts, feelings, self-image, is what ultimately determines how successful we will be. The study aims to emphasize the importance of the intrapersonal dimension in the learning process. Starting from the premise that emotions are the binder between thought and action, the proposed experimental program aimed at carrying out personal development activities that would determine the awareness of limitative thoughts and beliefs, of the importance of changing the way of perceiving a situation an event (positive interpretation of situations). The data of the research have shown that although negative thoughts and emotions appear, they can be shaped, restructured, so as to allow an optimal and balanced adaptation to various situations.

Keywords: Emotional agility; Socio-emotional intelligence; Self-image; Limitative thoughts; Positive interpretation of situations. (search for similar items in EconPapers)
