Rogers And Self- Actualization.
Rogers And Self- Actualization.
This is a short essay related to Chapter 5 and 6 on Carl Rogers theory of personality. Please read these chapters of your text before submitting this short essay.Follow the instructions below to complete this essay assignment.Rogers proposed that the fundamental human motive is self-actualization: a positive, growth-oriented human motive. That sounds like a very nice idea. And it is easy to think of cases in which people seem to be striving toward self-actualization. But it naturally raises the question of how, in Rogerian theory, one could explain the personality of people who seem oriented toward evil rather than positively-oriented growth. In other words, what about Hitler? Mass murderers? Etc. How could one posit a self-actualization theory in the face of such cases?

- 2021-04-172.pngYou must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
