    seems to describe more of someone who is, or has, grown up somewhat. I'm not sure I see a clear type in terms of socionics, more a blend of things. I've seen healthy people of all types come closer to that. it has to do with, perhaps, realizing what and who you are, and also what you are not, but, how all that fits into the bigger picture of things.

    I remember looking at this Humanist stuff in relation to socionics a while back, and if I recall correctly, a lot of the people Maslow identified as "self-actualised" were Alphas (e.g. Albert Einstein) or EIIs. I think his general idea was to outline some picture of "psychological health", but a few of the traits seem a bit biased. "Spontaneous" and "non-conformist" come to mind as a couple of traits that some types wouldn't really aspire to.

    I don't like humanistic psychology.

    I can totally understand that, i think its might be a Delta concept. Were Maslow/Rogers ENFp/EII's? Their theory is about people reaching their potential but i agree that what is assumed to be the best way to be is a bit too biased. I think he probablly just picked Einstien because he was so amazingly brilliant that Maslow couldn't imagine someone comming up with those ideas without being actualized.

    I can really identifiy with the idea of the true self and ideal self. I constanty feel like im trying to become my idealised self, but basically always falling short.

    Sounds like me right after rehab, even the part about "attracting followers." I've kind of lost that "peak experience," though.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    I think the self-actualized individual doesn't really hang around the forums.
