The psychological theory that shows free will is humanistic psychology. This is a type of study which ensures that the whole being of the person will be discussed. The belief of this theory is that all human beings are different.

It should not be expected that people will act in a certain way because this is the norm. It emphasizes that each human being is unique and the actions that people will do will be based on their beliefs, their experiences, and their values.

Basically, people will do what they think is right. This theory shows that the previous theories that were done seem sort of limited. Probably one reason why some people consider this their favorite theory is because of the belief that all human beings are innately good.

Humanistic psychology

The other schools of thought outside of Humanistic Psychology are deterministic in nature and do NOT believe in the concept of Free Will
