Connection Between the Subjective Assessment of Women’s Self-Realization and Attitudes to Different Sides of Reality in the Period of Parental Leave

Abstract

The article presents the studies of the influence of self-realization on her attitude to different sides of reality (to her husband, to her child, ideal self, real self to her work, to the education, to her mother, etc.). The study involved 110 mothers. In this study, we have used combination of three methods: essay, questioning, method of color metaphors. The results were processed by sign test, cluster and content analyses. Based on these results we made a conclusion that mothers during maternity leave understand the phenomena of selfrealization differently. Consequently, they differently define the essence of self-realization and define different types of self-realization. Content analysis showed that women who value self-realization are focused primarily on the internal condition and being in harmony and not on external factors. Unrealized women are influenced by external factors: lack of work or conflicts with her husband.
