What are the characteristics which make many adults act as if they are going on 2 years of
age, acting like spoiled brats who cannot tolerate any type of adversity nor disagreement? Yes, there are some people who act if they are entitled and believe that their perspective is the only correct one and no one else's matter.
We live in a dying age, the age of ego. More and more people are so wrapped up in their little instant gratification worlds of digital non reality than ever before.
Great answer, Wesman. I find that it is the INSECURE people who act that way. SECURE people are beyond ego and know who they are. They are not attention seekers, they just ARE.
This Christmas...half my family were sitting in chairs staring at Iphones....instead of interacting with their relatives. Very sad, in my opinion....
I know the type you are speaking of--he is 40 years old. This individual is belligerent and must be right about everything, so much so that his response to a simple question changes multiple times when he is proven wrong by others who, for the sake of getting on with the task at hand, would like to move on. When he cannot fulfill a promise or he has not taken responsibility for his part of a task, he often becomes angry and slams objects around, insults other people or whatever he thinks will hurt them the most, and punches holes in walls and doors. This type of person cannot let go of their ego to concentrate on substance rather than the superficial, which would be his anger at himself (or so he would claim, momentarily) for not being right. Every situation, no matter how benign, must turn into a competition in which he pits himself against another, diverting the focus from what needs to be done to how his feelings are being hurt. Furthermore, he has had no goals in life and has raised his children with the "I say or else..." rule, which does not work, but to produce bullying children who will have poor communication and coping skills.
AMEN, preach to the choir. Agree with you a multillion percent. This person is what my grandmother would call CHILDISH and IMMATURE. As the singer Tom Jones would say the person does not age his/her age but acts his/her shoe size.
Gosh, sounds like you were describing one particular fellow you know.
This question was in fact referring to a first maternal cousin. In fact, my baby cousin. She had that opinion. She loves to instigate things and must have things HER way. She is not used to any type of adversity whatsoever. None of the family can tolerate her, even her own mother and sisters. I thought about her all New Year's Eve. She is in her 40s, going on 2 years of age.
She was one of the younger cousins and my maternal grandparents raised her as her mother gave birth to her when she was a teenager. The baby cousin was allowed to get away with murder and have no responsibilities in her life. In essence, she was spoiled and that became apparent. She must have things easy and expect others to pay her way and to fully agree with her. If not, a tempest comes one way.
