Abstract
This paper describes the actualization of marginalized people in the capital city of Jakarta based on the theory of humanistic personality perceived by Abraham Maslow. The stressing on the marginalized people in this paper becomes important since the self-actualization of these people is extremely different from the self-actualization of other ordinary people. Maslow’s humanistic personality theory views individuals or societies’ personalities, including the personality of marginalized people. Maslow mentioned that humanistic personality contains multilevel needs arranged from the needs of physiological, security, love and belonging, self-esteem, and self-actualization. The approach used in this research is psychological literature. The data used is a short story entitled “Anak Ini Mau Mengencingi Jakarta?” (This Child Wants to Urinate Jakarta?) by Ahmad Tohari. The result of the discussion shows that marginalized people could actualize themselves in their own freedom portion after fulfilling their needs of physiological, security, love and belonging, self-esteem, and self-actualization. They always become part of a social life that exhibits self-actualization in their own way.
