Abstract

Scientific study on positive psychology has been increasingly popular to be applied in human development because it observes the positive sides of human being. The paradigm of positive psychology applies more positive perspective compared to psycho-analysis theory. Positive psychology establishes that in the midst of human helplessness, they always have a chance to see life more positively. Human being is seen as a creature that can survive from any helplessness and maximize its self-potential. Positive psychology also sees human being as a figure capable of defining its way to appreciate life. Positive psychology is centred on the meaning of life, the way a human being interprets everything within, in which the meaning is subjective (Seligman & Peterson, 2005).
