The Fear and Fervour of Being Alone

  1. Self-actualized people are accepting of others’ as well as their own flaws, often with humor and tolerance. Not only do self-actualized people fully accept others, they are also true to themselves rather than pretending in order to impress others (Talevich, 2017).
  2. Self-actualized people also tend to be independent and resourceful: they are less likely to rely upon external authorities to direct their lives (Martela & Pessi, 2018).
  3. Can cultivate deep and loving relationships with others.
  4. Tendency to exude gratitude and maintain a deep appreciation even for the commonplace blessings in life.
  5. Can often discern between the superficial and the real (or down to earth?) when judging situations.
  6. Seldom depend upon their environment or culture to form their opinions.
  7. Tendency to view life as a mission which calls them to a purpose beyond themselves.
