The Scrutinizing Phase in Youngsters

The author wants to educate herself about the human mind and the psychology behind it.

About the phase

Parents are often said to be our first pedagogues. And most probably a lot of our thoughts and opinions are still influenced by our parents. In case you are an adult already, you may have developed an unfettered mindset of your own. But it is not so for teenagers and children who just hit puberty. They are in this phase of life where they truly experiment with their true thoughts, opinions and emotions.

The first significant and noteworthy incident is when I once heard a conversation of my father with one of my relatives and I could for the first time understood that what the other relative was saying sounded more convincing to me than what was being said by my father, but it was my discovery towards a new point of view in my life where I try to understand the situation or conversation, analyse it and then conclude. Rather than being opinionated about things based on what I have been taught from my close relatives or guidance provides.

It is more like just a wave in a teenager's life when various situations and thoughts flood into the mind. For example, if there is a situation where a person calls another person a brat for having stepped on his hamburger. In this situation, a youngster starts developing empathy rather than sympathy towards the two people and might overthink the whole scenario, make a fuss about it.
