What Make You Feel Insignificance



A generation ago young people aspired to become lawyers and doctors. Now they yearn to be the next Oscar winner or celebrity pop star.

But one university psychologist has warned this is wreaking havoc with our self-image and undermining our sense of self-worth. Over recent years people around the world have been suffering from an increasing fear of their own "insignificance", according to Dr Carlo Strenger of Tel Aviv University.

He began an interdisciplinary project on the phenomenon 10 years ago, after noticing a surge of this fear in his own patients. His findings, presented in a new book, notes hundreds of research projects that have charted an unprecedented increase in levels of anxiety and depression.

By using a wide-ranging framework Dr Strenger thinks he has pinpointed5 the cause. "The impact of the global infotainment' network on the individual is to blame," he said. "A new species is born: homo globalis -global man -and we are defined by our intimate connection to the global infotainment network, which has turned ranking and rating people on scales of wealth and celebrity into an obsession. "

As humans we naturally measure ourselves to those around us, but now we live in a "global village" we are comparing ourselves with the most "significant" people in the world -and finding ourselves wanting. Today, even high achievers constantly fear that they are insignificant when they compare themselves to success stories in the media. "This creates highly unstable self-esteem and an unstable society," Dr Strenger said.

Instead, Dr Strenger says people should stop measuring their achievement through cultural fantasies of riches and celebrity, which cannot lead to fulfillment. The remedy is a process that he calls "active self-acceptance" through a sustained quest for self-knowledge through life.

The fear of insignificance can only be overcome through strong individual and cultural identity over and above measurable achievement. He believes that people need to invest as much time in developing their worldviews as their careers.

"Stable meaning cannot be found in cheap paperbacks. People should invest time and thought to their worldviews and self-understanding in the same way they invest in medical studies and law school," Dr Strenger advises.
