Q. Personal Guidance
According to Jones, everyone needs guidance at some time in his life. Some need it constantly while others require it only at rare times of great crisis. It is some form of help or assistance given by an expert person to an individual to develop his or her personality and achieve proper direction in life.
Personal guidance is that guidance which is given on a personal level to solve personal problems. It is the assistance offered to a person to solve his/her social, emotional, moral, health and adjustment problems.
As per Ruth Strang – Personal guidance is the assistance given to an individual to solve his personal problems such as emotional and social adjustment, economic and social relationships and problems connected with his physical as well as mental health.”
As per Wilson – “The purpose of personal guidance is to help the individual in his physical, emotional, social, moral and spiritual development and adjustment.”
Each individual differs in physical, emotional, psychological, intellectual, personality traits, interests, likings, abilities, achievements, aspirations, etc. Requirements of various occupations also differ. Eg. Engineering versus Medical, Agriculture versus Architecture, etc.
Personal guidance is useful for better self-understanding where a person learns to accept his shortcomings, overcome his complexes, realize his potentials and love himself for who he is.
