Abraham Maslow On Integrity, Spiritual Growth and Self-Actualization
Characteristics of the Self-Actualized Person:
Dealing with imperfections
Self actualized individuals were found to have acceptance of self, others, and nature. These individuals accept themselves without embarrassment or complaint, and with really no thought about the issue. They are also able to accept others in the same without trying to control them or perfect them in any way. They are comforted and accept their human nature. They can see human nature as it is, not what they wish it to be. They welcome the imperfections (all the guilt, anxiety, self-blame etc. regular people experience, but these do not stem from neurosis) easily and without judgement.
