Instead, they seek VALUES AND IDEALS that may help define their personality before the world. From this ideological egocentrism, two trends that are typical of young people’s style of discussion can be discerned:

b) compulsion to judge everything as good or bad, to “take sides” even regarding remote hypothesis or non-existent possibilities.
That this phenomenon prevails among the young does not prevent it from appearing among adults who have not reached intellectual maturity.
