I am 23 years old like that I am an adult in general, but otherwise my age is like a child?
Hello Dhaning, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
A condition like that you have in the world of psychology is called Peter Pan syndrome, which is a condition where a person has a physical adult, but his emotional age, including the behavior and way of thinking like children. This condition is not classified as a specific disease, but this condition is very often found today. This condition is thought to occur because of the influence of overprotective parents on children. Children become unaccustomed to facing their own problems because parents always solve problems and offer solutions for children. Children become dependent on their parents to solve all their problems.
Some of the characteristics that can be found in this condition include:
at adulthood, the person cannot cook, wash clothes, wash dishes, change lamps, pay taxes, or do other work that should be done by adults in adulthood, the person hopes that someone else can do everything for him, can someone parents or their life partner in adulthood, the person can not hold back emotions (irritable) and often acts impulsively (does not think about the consequences before acting) in adulthood, the person still feels that he is the center of everything (feels that everything is his, made for himself) and does not think about the needs of others around him, the person cannot introspect and admit his mistakes, but tends to blame the people around him. in adulthood, the person cannot be given great responsibility and cannot make wise decisions.
If you do have these characteristics, you should consult directly with a psychologist for further assistance on how to mature an emotional age.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
