Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all



What is an EmoSociogram

The term emosociogram is introduced, by adopting the term sociogram and enriching the information on it with the inclusion of data related with the emotional competencies of the individuals or the group. An emosociogram is a directed weighted graph with asymmetric relationships, where the nodes represent the members of a social group, while the edges the relationships among them. Four type of relationships are considered, denoting preference, rejection, perception of preference and perception of rejection among the members of the group. Different weights represent the intensity of each relationship. An emosociogram is a multi-graph, meaning that a pair of nodes may have different types of relationships simultaneously (parallel edges). For instance, node A may have a “preference” relationship towards node B and at the same time a “perception of preference” relationship with node B.
