1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY
Personal growth could be view as a personal active intention to create new ideas that could serve a new self concept which new invention of knowledge could cut across. According to Mackay, (1997) defined personal growth as individual concept which claim to bring new look at knowledge. But he further said that personal growth at time could be negative which orientation had abandoned for long. However, positive idea thinking of an individual which most people welcome as a new look of ideas (Grob, 2001) stated that, technology that rampant today world could served as growth initiation of some who couple packages which product output of work, enhancing the performance of industry and teaching-learning of pupils in school. So this personal growth of individual varied from one opinion to another person.
individual’s view is likely to change over time because individual differ in their views of self-direction in learning, but. Traits are labels for broad reaction tendencies and express relatively permanent patterns of behaviour (Catteli, 1965). People make internal attributions to individuals who demonstrate particular behaviour pattern indifferent situations or at different times without apparent external reasons. The more cross-situational consistency one observes, and the more external causes of behaviour seem to be lacking, the more likely one would make an internal or dispositional attribution (Harvey, Kelley and Shapiro, 1997).
Individuals hold perceptions of what skills, abilities, talents and knowledge they possess. These can range from very specific skills, to more general competencies such as the leadership skills to create and manage change. Personal growth also transcends specific situation, guide selection or evaluation of behaviour and events (Schwartz and Bilsky, 1990). Individuals demonstrate certain values through their speech and actions, the concern over what is meant by self-directed, learning is a relevant one.
