Answers may vary, but should contain the following for full credit: Humanists differed from the predominant psychodynamic view of personality in stressing the positive, non-mechanistic, and non-deterministic aspects of humanity. Humanists emphasized that human beings are more than the sum of their parts; the complexity of human experience cannot be reduced to individual component elements. Humanists also focus on the present and valued consciousness as the most important level of awareness, unlike the psychodynamic focus on childhood experiences and unconscious forces. Humanists held that every person has value, even arguing that all human beings are inherently good. Finally, humanists thought the goal of life was personal growth spurred by self-understanding and self-exploration.
