Spiritual intelligence contemporary life has become increasingly more complex and problematic, reason by which the majority of human beings must face constant challenges, perceptible and imperceptible threats and to deal with unusual situations. The substantive capacity to determine its mode of action is intelligence, understood as the tool that allows hence, detect, given account and plan consequential actions. This capability as the intellectual power, the collection of necessary information and a good imaginative flow classically, is understood to interpret reality and planning consistent solutions. In a very general way it could punish a good formal education offers these elements and thus the person would be ready to be successfully inserted into life. In more specific terms, you can assume that the prototype case would be that of University professional, who would have already agreed to a such degree of training that would make it capable for their personal, social and emotional development with that kind of education. While all this is true, the demands of life in recent times has shown that it is not entirely true.
In other words, we need something more than a good formal education and the possession of one kind of intelligence understood in current terms. Then immediately the question arises what is something else? Among the most characteristic answers that have been given is that which speaks of other types of intelligences. The concepts of multiple intelligences (1), intelligence (emotional (2), practical intelligence (3) have been introduced in such a context and intelligence spiritual (4). Basically, the central idea that drives these alternatives is to rescue all the dimensions and capacities of the seen human being that the single intellectual ability is not sufficient to achieve satisfactory vital performance and what are those other existential dimensions and capacities of realization? Intuitive perception, relational warmth and spontaneous generosity, among others can be cited, by way of illustrative examples, the communicational ability, maturity, the creative imagination.
