Abstract

This opinion paper, proposes a model that integrates these components fluid intelligence (FI), social cognition (SC) and perspective changing abilities (PCI) as indicators of psychosocial adaptation (PSA) in contexts of social vulnerability or diminished social or cultural conditions, in contrast to contributions in neurosciences made from evidence of patients with brain damage or psychiatric disorders. PSA, defined as the quality of social life and subjective well-being of an individual in context is relevant for proper development. FI has been defined as the ability to think logically and to solve problems in new situations, regardless of the acquisition of knowledge. PSA includes multiple dimensions such as social behavior, emotional regulation, and the development of social habits. Variables such as FI, SC, and PCA would influence PSA processes, based on the evidence from injured patient it is observed that PCA will be altered given their link to complex cognitive functions and high level cognitive skills such as mental state attribution, empathy, and understanding of social contextual cues. In brief, assessing the effects of FI, PCA, and SC would be crucial for understanding the different levels of PSA in vulnerable contexts. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2013 APA, all rights reserved)
