Infantilism - this is a characteristic of the personality, expressing the immaturity of its psychological development, the preservation of features inherent in the earlier age stages. Human infantilism in the household sense is called childishness, which is manifested in the immaturity of behavior, inability to make informed decisions, unwillingness to take responsibility.
Under infantilism in psychology is understood the immaturity of the individual, which is expressed in the delay in the formation of the personality when its actions do not meet the age requirements. Some people take the immaturity of behavior for granted. The life of a modern person is quite impetuous; it is this way of life that pushes a person towards such behavior, stopping adulthood and personality development, while maintaining it inside an adult small and unintelligent child. The cult of eternal youth and youth, the presence of a wide variety of entertainment of modern culture, this is what provokes the development of human immaturity, pushing into the background the development of an adult personality and allowing you to remain an eternal child.
Over time, the individual gets used to this way of life. He may not be young anymore, but he is carried away by his former irresponsible behavior, frivolity, entertainment, and a person does not want to part with such a life. He does not notice how many problems around this generates such immaturity.
Often women complain about the immaturity of their men, and they in turn for women. People do not understand their immaturity of character, they do not realize that it is necessary to show constancy and perseverance in life, and not to go on about their situational desires.
To understand more specifically what is human immaturity, one should find out the reasons for the formation of this quality.
Causes of immaturity often lie in the features of education. Often, mothers want to take care of the child for as long as possible, thereby pushing away his growing up.
Signs of infantilism are mainly expressed in the degree of maturation of the emotional-volitional sphere, in the preservation of children's qualities and inability to make an independent decision.
An interesting fact is that the infantile man and the infantile woman will not be able to live together and create a family, since they both need someone more mature than them who would act as parents.
