Over the years the emotional component has been completely absent from the definition of intellectual disability and these resources, emotional intelligence and other psychological aspects among the population of the intellectually disabled have not yet been examined. In our study, the question arises, why is the emotional component absent from the definition of the new intellectual disability, is it due to a lack of awareness of the subject of emotional intelligence? This issue has only developed over the past decade in a population with normal development or the definition designers thought that there was no difference in the level of emotional intelligence between people with intellectual disabilities and their friends with normal development
