IS PRUDENCE A BRIDGE BETWEEN INTELLIGENCE AND PERSONALITY?
Languages of publication
Attention is devoted to the prudence as a 'team of virtues'. The stress is laid on eight forms of prudence as long-term memory, ability to the adequately understand existing relationships, openness to advice of the others, brightness, reasonableness, foresight, circumspection, cautiousness. The prudence is oriented to a practical achievement of the personal goals, plans and designs. However, we assume an ability to choose appropriate means to attain the goals. The prudence represents one of the preconditions of a mature and cultivated personality, permitting one to master a suitable concept of life style and primarily to identify means leading to this goal. The prudence asserts itself by refusing the self-regulatory failings and the unjustified temptations. These reflections also imply that the concept prudence bridges over the historically preserved though methodologically unjustified division between a subject's behavior and his personality.
