Interiorization - This is the process of formation of structures of the human psyche through the acquisition of life experience. The concept comes from the French "intériorisation", which translated means from the outside to the inside, and from the Latin "interior", which means internal. The term interiorization and synonyms for it are very rare. This is a specific term, often used only in the respective context. Therefore, synonyms for the word interiorization, as such, are absent and only in rare cases it is used together with the word "transition", which means, respectively, the transition from external to internal.
Before a certain complex action is assimilated by the human mind, it is realized from the outside. Thanks to the internalization, people can talk about themselves, represent themselves and what is very important to think about themselves without disturbing others.
Social interiorization means borrowing the basic categories of individual consciousness from public experience and ideas. This state is expressed in the ability of the human psyche to operate with images of any objects that are not in sight at the moment. These can be objects, objects, phenomena, events, with which a person has ever had an interaction, or he can imagine something he has never even seen, construct events that may occur, or have once happened. A person can go beyond the boundaries of a given moment, events can move in the past and future, in time and space.
The concept of interiorization is characteristic only in relation to people, animals do not have this ability, their brain does not have the ability to go beyond the existing situation. The instrument of interiorization is the word, and the means of transition from situation to situation is speech action. The word identifies and fixes the most important properties of things and methods developed by human practice, which operate information. Human behavior is out of the action of the external situation, which previously determined the behavior of the animal. The correct use of words contributes to the assimilation of the significant properties of things, phenomena and ways of managing information. Thanks to the process of interiorization, a person is able, with the help of words, to learn from the experience of all mankind, as well as previous generations, or the experience of people unknown, hundreds or even thousands of kilometers away. In domestic science, this term was introduced first by Vygotsky. He believed that all functions of the human psyche are formed as external, social forms of communication of people in the form of labor or other activities.
Vygotsky understood the concept of interiorization as the transformation of external actions into a person’s internal conscious plan. The development of the psyche begins from outside under the influence of social factors that exist in society. Collective forms of activity are embedded by internalization into the human consciousness and become individual. After Vygotsky, Halperin began to study this phenomenon and laid it at the basis of a systematic gradual education. Nietzsche understood this concept in his own way. He said that the instincts that do not go outside, still manifest themselves, but from the inside - this is what he called interiorization.
