Thanks so much !!!! I am a bit confused in one ! i got 18 right and one confused and one wrong !

....... Hypothesis is not derived from a theory but is an explaination of a phenomenon because those who create a hypothesis don't keep in mind any theory ..... they just see the surroundings and create a statement called hypothesis which after several steps becomes a theory !

DEADLYDOCTOR Sunday, March 21, 2010 07:02 PM

For a hypothesis to be put forward as a scientific hypothesis, the scientific method requires that one can test it. Scientists generally base scientific hypotheses on previous observations that cannot be satisfactorily explained with the available scientific theories. Even though the words "hypothesis" and "theory" are often used synonymously in common and informal usage, a scientific hypothesis is not the same as a scientific theory – although the difference is sometimes more one of degree than of principle.

People refer to a trial solution to a problem as a hypothesis — often called an "educated guess"[5] — because it provides a suggested solution based on the evidence. Experimenters may test and reject several hypotheses before solving the problem.

these are statements from wikipedia .
and also from many psychology books answer is what i told u "a testable prediction..........'

Psychopathology

Rogers describes the concepts of congruence and incongruence as important ideas in his theory. In proposition #6 he refers to the actualizing tendency. At the same time he recognizes the need for positive regard. In a fully congruent person realizing their potential is not at the expense of experiencing positive regard. They are able to lead lives that are authentic and genuine. Incongruent individuals, in their pursuit of positive regard, live lives that include falseness and do not realise their potential. Conditions put on them by those around them make it necessary for them to forego their genuine, authentic lives to meet with the approval of others. They live lives that are not true to themselves, to who they are on the inside.

Rogers suggests that the incongruent individual who is always on the defensive and cannot be open to all experiences is not functioning ideally and may even be malfunctioning. They work hard at maintaining/protecting their self concept. Because their lives are not authentic this is a difficult task and they are under constant threat. They deploy defense mechanisms to achieve this. He describes two mechanisms: distortion and denial. Distortion occurs when the individual perceives a threat to their self concept. They distort the perception until it fits their self concept. Denial follows the same process except instead of distorting they deny the threat exists.

This defensive behavior reduces the consciousness of the threat but not the threat itself. And so, as the threats mount, the work of protecting the self concept becomes more difficult and the individual more defensive and rigid in their self structure. If the incongruence is immoderate this process may lead the individual to a state that would typically be described as neurotic. Their functioning becomes precarious and psychologically vulnerable. If the situation worsens it is possible that the defenses cease to function altogether and the individual becomes aware of the incongruence of their situation. Their personality becomes disorganised and bizarre, irrational behavior, associated with earlier denied aspects of self, may erupt uncontrollably.
this is from wikipedia


[B]Self-concept-the way in which one perceives oneself-can be divided into categories, such as personal self-concept[/B] (facts or one's own opinions about oneself, such as "I have brown eyes" or "I am attractive"); [B]social self-concept[/B] (one's perceptions about how one is regarded by others: "people think I have a great sense of humor"); [B]and self-ideals[/B] (what or how one would like to be: "I want to be a lawyer" or "I wish I were thinner").
[B]According to Rogers, one's self-concept influences how one regards both oneself and one's environment[/B]. The self-concept of a mentally healthy person is consistent with his or her thoughts, experiences, and behavior. However, people may maintain a self-concept that is at odds with their true feelings to win the approval of others and "fit in," either socially or professionally. This involves repressing their true feelings and impulses, which eventually causes them to become alienated from themselves, distorting their own experience of the world and limiting their potential for self-actualization, or fulfillment. The gulf between a person's self-concept and his or her actual experiences (which Rogers called incongruence) is a chronic source of anxiety and can even result in mental disorders. According to Rogers, a strong self-concept is flexible and allows a person to confront new experiences and ideas without feeling threatened.

according to above points role model looks ok . my answers are mine extracted from study and in no way final for others u can have your opinion

madu Monday, March 22, 2010 02:42 PM

i'm just quoting a line from [B]Corey's[/B] book [B]Theory and Practice of Counseling and Psychotherapy[/B]

[B]"Rogers believed that there must be unconditional positive regard from some others so that a person's self regard can be increased"[/B]

and you can even check this ebook to make your concept clear :)
