people with motor deficiencies, attitude towards oneself, attitude towards life, perspective of graduate studies


Disability is a multidimensional concept that has the following components:
medical, functional and social. This research proposed to test the hypothesis that
self-attitude and attitude towards the life of motor deficiencies persons is
independent of the level of studies. Thus, people with motor disabilities who have
university studies: wish to be born a second time, get annoyed when they do not
succeed; complain without reason, feel jealous of those who do not face the same
deficiency, are satisfied with them, are fulfilled by their lives, do not believe that
others are to blame for what is happening to them. People with motor disabilities
who have gymnasia studies: feel the most dissatisfied with them, are not so
fulfilled in their life, get angry when they fail, think the others are to blame for
what's happening, have feelings of jealousy to people who do not face the same
deficiency and do not complain without reason.
