Una teoría balance de la sabiduría

  • Robert J. Sternberg Universidad Estatal de Oklahoma (Estados Unidos)
Palabras clave: Sabiduría, Aspectos psicológicos

Resumen

Aun cuando resulta difícil defi nir la sabiduría, los psicólogos han desarrollado teorías acerca de este tema; una de ellas es la teoría del balance, que postula que a la hora de tomar decisiones, los individuos sabios se basan en sus valores y conocimientos, que balancean los intereses confl ictivos de naturaleza intrapersonal, interpersonal y extrapersonal, en plazos cortos y largos. Este modelo conceptual de la sabiduría está orientado a la acción y toma en cuenta los valores y conocimientos relevantes, sumados a la consideración de los múltiples intereses y a sus posibles consecuencias. Este modelo teórico, además, no solamente puede ser aprendido por los estudiantes, sino también enseñado por los profesores.
