Actualization and the Fear of Death: Retesting an Existential Hypothesis.
Wood, Keith; Robinson, Paul J.
Essence: Issues in the Study of Ageing, Dying, and Death, v5 n3 p235-43 1982
Demonstrates that within a group of highly actualized individuals, the degree to which "own death" is integrated into constructs of self is a far more powerful predictor of fear of death than actualization. Findings suggest that actualization and integration are independent in their overall effect on fear of death. (Author)
