dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study is to examine the concept of self -actualization, with primary emphasis on the possible correlation to academic achievement exhibited by the students in the Information Systems (Telecommunications) curriculum at the Naval Postgraduate School. The author provides a summary of an extensive review of the literature on the concepts of "self" and "self -actualization," including the classical and contemporary views of self, the history of self -actualization, and Maslow's characteristics of a self -actualizing man. In addition, the results of scores obtained from the Shostrom POI , a personality inventory constructed to measure levels of self -actualization, is correlated to the grade point averages of the aforementioned students. A curvilinear relationship was found between some of the scales of the POI and academic achievement. In conclusion, the limitations of the study as well as possible avenues for future research are discussed.
