Running head: PHENOMENOLOGICAL CONCEPTS 1 5-2 Journal: Phenomenological Concepts Amanda Statler Southern New Hampshire University Psy 216
PHENOMENOLOGICAL CONCEPTS 2 It took me a little time to figure out if there was congruence between my actual, ideal, and ought self. I do believe there is come congruence, but there will always be some conflict between my actual self, ideal self, and ought self. I consistently over-think things, have a huge heart, and try to make everyone happy. This is me, but who I want to be is someone care-free, happy, and still have a big heart. My ought self agrees with my ideal self. I need to be someone that doesn’t always need a plan and to just do things that make me happy, but my actual self can’t seem to let me do that. I hope this makes sense. So, I do not feel there is a high amount of congruence, but there is just enough. I do agree with Carl Rogers’s concepts on self. He describes self as perceptions and beliefs that are consistent about one’s self (Cervone & Pervin, 2019).
