Sažetak This present study uses as its point of departure the surprising results of another experimental study by the author which corelates moral judgment (Kohlberg's scale), guilt (a subscale by the author within the MMPI), and depression. According to that study, arrest in moral development appears not as the consequence of depression and eaggerated guilt feelings, but rather as the cause of them. The unexpected results can best be. interpreted according to general personality-development arrest, where depression is the symptom of the arrest.
Using those results, the author here identifies and analyzes three typical blocks to personal development: the escape from existential anxiety and thus the closure of the possibility for further personal growth; the escape from the exercise of one's personal freedom Into a variety of existential determinisms; and the escape from the universal human call to transcendence which leads to a feeling of the senselessness and futility of life.
The second part of the study treats dimensions of personality growth which correspond to the three blocks identified earlier. The first perspective lies in accepting responsibility for oneself as a way to diminish non-ego factors; the second, in opening onself to the universal human call to transcending onself by recognizing one's inherent self-insufficiency; and the third, by orienting one's life toward the final and absolute goal of God as Supreme Being.
In general, the author concludes with numerous existential thinkers that the confusion characterizing the contemporary worlds stems from man's failure to measure himself exlstentially with God.
