Welcome to the Personal Growth Initiative (PGI) Research Lab

For lab related questions, please e-mail: pgi.psychology@ttu.edu

Personal growth initiative (PGI) is a person’s global inclination to intentionally improve one’s self in different areas of his or her life. It is a skill set that every person carries into life experiences that influences each person to seek out opportunities for growth and to capitalize on those opportunities by engaging in intentional efforts to personally change and improve.

Recent research on PGI has identified four areas that are essential to the intentional personal growth process. These areas are:

- Planfulness: Intentions and actions related to planning for personal change

- Readiness for Change: Aspects of preparedness for making specific changes in one’s self

- Using Resources: Obtaining assistance from resources outside one’s self

- Intentional Behavior: Intentional action aimed at producing personal growth
