Description

Superficiality is defined as behaviors and speech that contradict the core personality of the individual. An individual's behavior and speech can be self-altered to force adaptation of societal standards and changes in lifestyle. Although it requires excess effort, individuals even alter their behavior on a daily basis to obtain the desired results. Actions such as these are always caused by some motivator, or factor. When analyzing the root cause of altering behavior, the effort towards superficial actions stems from various underlying factors such as age, conformity, benefits, decision-making, and standards. Each of these components place pressure on the individual in different manners. For example, younger individuals have less experience in managing their behavior, which leads to superficial attitudes. Assumed benefits from specific actions may also force individuals to alter their behavior to reap the results. These various aspects reshape how individuals behave around others, leading to prominent superficiality. The influence of these factors must be mitigated to prevent superficial behavior from dominating one's existence and interactions.
