A STUDY ON RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN EMOTIONAL MATURITY AND SELF-RATING ANXIETY AMONG B.Ed. STUDENTS By  Kayalvizhi G. and Vinoth S.

Abstract

Generally speaking, ‘Education’ is utilized in three senses: Knowledge, Subject and a Process. When a person achieves degree up to certain level we do not call it education. As for example if a person has secured Masters Degree then we utilize education as a very narrower sense and call that the person has achieved education up to Masters Level. In the second sense, education is utilized in a sense of discipline. As for example if a person had taken education as a paper or as a discipline during his study in any institution then we utilize education as a subject. In the third sense, education is utilized as a process. In fact when we talk of education, we talk in the third sense i.e. education as a process. Education modifies the behaviour of the individual. A change of behaviour can take place through learning. The main aim of education is to develop harmonious personality of the learner through making him/her as an emotionally matured person. Therefore, the emotionally mature is not one who necessarily has resolved all conditions that aroused anxiety and possibility but it is continuously in process of seeing himself in clearer perspective, continually involved in a struggle to gain healthy integration of feeling, action and thought. Key words: Emotional maturity, Anxiety, Self rating, Education.
