Would it be possible to solve a maths problem without expressing a given emotion be it pleasure or stress or whatever? To what extent does this emotion affect the resolution processes and their effectiveness? Could we learn a poem by heart without being motivated to do so? To what extent does this emotion impinge the learning processes? Is it possible to produce a given emotional reaction with no information processing of the various social and emotional variables of the given situation?

Many a question is to be asked at the dawn of a new era in psychology; an era where emotion, motivation and cognition intertwine to build up a new vision of the human personality and cognition, and to explain how they both operate. Be it so, could we hope to understand the human cognitive functioning without understanding that what orientates it?!

Having split emotion and motivation from cognition for a long time, researchers do realize now the urge of encompassing all the variables of personality for a better understanding of performance. This approach is likely to alter the performances evaluation, in various fields, as well as the task's latent cognitive activity.
