There is no sense of what I want outside of others’ expectations or societal roles. This is generally admirable in teenagers, but in adults it can often seem like a personality flaw. A developmental perspective, however, shows us that this is an achievement rather than a flaw. For a person to arrive at this form of mind requires leaving the solitary confinement of his own mind and welcoming new members into his perspective and decisionmaking process. Like an executive looking for guidance beyond himself, he has created an internal Board of Directors to help him see the world and make decisions.
What happens to the you inside you when you make meaning from the socialized form of mind? And when do you get you back? Someone with a socialized mind does not feel as though she has lost her self. She is being the very biggest, most complicated self she knows how to be, and that self is created by the incredibly complex network of cultural, relational, ideological external pieces. It feels—rightly so—as though she is bigger than she once was, that she contains far more than she once did. Before she grew to this point, she was locked in her own self-sovereign mind with only glimpses of other perspectives and points of view.
But when your form of mind grows, you discover that what you once thought was the main action was simply a tiny portion of what was going on; now the club is much larger and has far more interesting characters. You might get a perspective on the band, on the line cooks in the kitchen, on the conversation the owners are having about whether to raise drink prices again. You might also gain a perspective on your own reactions as you look down at the dance floor—and be able to think about which buttons are being pushed by which people and what you might do about that.
