Introduction
In this day and age, many have many problems in everyday life since they do not understand themselves much and do not know how to interact with others. This shows that they have poor skills in intra- and interpersonal competencies. Sammy’s case is a good example and I am going to investigate it by identifying his problems and proposing solutions for him.

Sammy is right in the “I’m not OK, you’re OK” position. Furthermore, Since Sammy has an unsatisfactory result in the public examination and thus is not able to enter any university, his self-image is greatly worsened because good academic result takes a vital role to build up self-image.

Secondly, he is not capable of acknowledgement of himself which means he does not know how to value himself due to his low self-image. He does not trust himself which performs badly public examination and accordingly doubts about his ability and beliefs. This turns out that he loses self –belief and starts doubting about his identity and interests. He does not know about everything about himself except the fact that he dislikes studying. He is goalless so that he does not have any targets for him to achieve in the future but just listens and goes ahead to the orders...
