Conditional Positive Regard Getting positive regard “on condition” Rogers calls conditional positive regard. When people show conditional positive regard it means that an individual is taken not as a ‘self’ and an entity but as a collection of behaviours. Thus one is appreciated only on showing acceptable behaviours. Rogers is of the view that it hampers the positive growth of ‘self’ and as a result conditional positive self-regard develops. It means that one begins to like oneself only if he meets up with the standards others have applied to him, rather than when he truly actualizes his potentials. And since these standards were created without keeping each individual in mind, more often than not he finds himself unable to meet them, and therefore unable to maintain any sense of self-esteem.

Rogers described the self as a social product, developing out of interpersonal relationships and striving for consistency.Self-Actualizing TendencyRogers' person-centered theory emphasized the concept of "self-actualization." This concept implies that there is an internal, biological force to develop one's capacities and talents to the fullest. The individual's central motivation is to learn and to grow.
