Recommendation for Future Psychobiographical Research and Practice

As referred to in Sect. 2.2, the Nigerian writer and novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie speaks about the idea that lives and cultures are created from many different stories. Misunderstandings are created by focusing on one single story that is created about a person (Adichie, 2009), which can lead to stereotypes, incomplete images and misinterpretations of the person.

This story on Paulo Coelho created in this research study is only one “story” about this extraordinary, world-class author. It is written with the intention to empower, to humanise and to contribute to the dignity of the writer. However, it needs to be understood as a single story, which is only complete when other stories about and from this writer are read and taken into account by the reader. Therefore, it is recommended that this study be seen as one contribution to the attempt to understand and reconstruct the life of Coelho from a positive psychology perspective. Based on this understanding of the study, the recommendations below are made with regard to research and practice. It is not an exhaustive list of all the recommendations possible, but might provide some advice for future research and practice.
