The problem is focused on Rogers' ideas about self actualization and the fully functioning person. Specific human behaviors that contriubte to a lack of self-concept is discussed. How the person may or may not realize self-actualization involves a negative perception of the self. Thus, Rogers's view of personality development suggests that a negative feeling of self leads to a need to distort expereinces that foster an incongruence to self-concept. This negative view of self leads to factors such as: anxiety,incongruence and defensive behaviors.
