"In their tendencies toward tolerance, openmindedness, faith in people
and lack of authoritarianism, selfactualizers do appear to possess
psychic strengths which allow them to work well in situations marked
by a diversity of viewpoints."
The Human Basis of Polity, 1972

Reader comments about this quote:
Sounds like a Democratic Party Big Tent approach.
 -- Waffler, Smith, Arkansas     
    Strip away the big words and I read "people who get along well with others get along well with others." The strength of a society is in communicating diverse, sometimes clashing viewpoints in a way that respects the humanity of others. This is different than the "all truth is relative so all opinions are equally valid" brand of political correctness we frequently see in todays culture.

    giggle....yep...as per this quote,I agree.
     -- Me Again     
    They may in fact work well with others with diverse viewpoints in a play school kind of way but accomplish nothing of consequence because they have no principles. They are carried by the wind with no point or purpose and are as easily persuaded to do the wrong thing as the right. I tend not to pay much attention to anyone who use words like 'selfactualize'.
     -- Ken, Allyn, WA     
    Waffler, the Democrat party has not been able to play well with others for the last 50 years. Quote seems lacking. I think Greg has it.
