THE MOTIVATIONAL-AFFECTIVE DIMENSION OF THE INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATION COMPETENCE OF THE ROMANIAN MILITARY PERSONNEL PARTICIPATING IN STABILITY AND SUPPORT OPERATIONS
Abstract: The motivational dimension of the intercultural communication competence of the Romanian military personnel
participating in stability and support operations outside the national territory denotes the ensemble of related motivations
and affectivity which determines the military personnel, as individual, military structures as a human group, and the training
institution to act in the sense and direction required by the obtaining of that respective competence.
From another point of view, this dimension reflects the motives that drive the military personnel, either as individuals
or as members of a group, to act purposefully, assiduously and responsibly in order to achieve their objectives. At the same
time, this dimension harmoniously combines motivation with the affectivity that accompanies any human activity. Thus, the
one way or another motivated human action is always accompanied by diverse affective experiences, different in intensity
and meaning. In our opinion, affectivity gives colour specific to the motivation of human action. Thus, success in an activity
motivated intrinsically or extrinsically is affectively experienced and is more often expressed through emotions and feelings.
These in their turn are either positive or negative.
