When the human being starts to know himself and appreciate his abilities, it is as if he has a kind of responsibility to transcend himself form lower stages of humanity to higher ones. For Kierkegaard, this transcendence is possible by helping of the human outstanding characteristic, namely the Anxiety. According to his notion of anxiety, any individual is always concerned and anxious about the quality of his choices. This anxiety leads the individual to choose the best choice through which he can represent his very own self as much as possible.
