THE PSYCHOLOGICALLY INTEGRATED PERSON AND THE PARAMETERS OF OPTIMAL FUNCTIONING
Languages of publication
The integrated person is defined by Rogers as unified within him/herself at all levels and with low discrepancy between the present self and the desired self. Optimal functioning of a person occurs when the various aspects of a person are integrated into a relatively harmonious organization. This paper presents a research study where relationships between the level of personal psychological integration and proactive coping, self-esteem, neuroticism and openness to experience in non-therapeutic settings (n = 55 administrative workers) are studied. The authors found that the highly integrated persons are more proactive, have more positive self-esteem and are less neurotic. The relationship between psychological integration and openness was not confirmed.
