'Role model' warning from psychiatrist to teenagers

Psychiatrist Onur Okan Demirci from Istanbul Gelisim University, who stated that the phenomena of the movement created by the image and lifestyle of the music groups called "K-Pop", especially from South Korea, are accepted as idols and symbolized by the young population, said: “Meeting with different music cultures surely enriches our lives. However, the worlds that are in the infrastructure of these cultures can affect us, especially the young population. In today's world, behaviors, speech styles, hairstyles, clothing designs, relationships and communication styles are shaped according to these popular cultures.”
 
“CAN BE IMITATED EVEN THE EATING ORDER”
 
Expressing that the life styles and body images of the models belonging to this culture are tried to be imitated, Demirci said: “In psychology, the dynamics of the situation we call role models are realized by imitation. The person who is taken as a role model is imitated by the person who takes him as a role model, from his lifestyle to his eating pattern. For example, a phenomenon role model who shares the unhealthy diet he has made today may have the power to spread that diet around the world the next day.”
 
“THEY WILL LOOK FOR SATISFACTION AT THE END LEVELS”
 
Psychiatrist Onur Okan Demirci, who stated that phenomenal models live in a situation that can be called stage ego, said: “The ego spirit known to all humanity, which causes him to be chased, and is fed by millions of followers and applause, will maximize the levels of satisfaction in the person. Thus, these people will not be satisfied with the pleasures of ordinary life and will seek extreme levels of satisfaction for themselves. The society that witnesses all these stories can be encouraged to the lives of these people, whom they take as role models, and may disappear in the desire to live a life that does not actually belong to them and they cannot feel belonging.”
 
“MAY MISS THE ENTIRE ENJOYMENT OF LIFE”
 
Stating that one's taking care of someone else's difficulties while struggling with his own difficulties will cause him to take heavy loads that he cannot bear, Demirci said: “When we cannot overcome these burdens, we may lose all the joy of life and be pushed towards behaviors that can reach the end of our life. It is a wonderful feeling to be able to get to know different cultures and reach them easily, but we can find ourselves in a world where we cannot feel belonging when the thread is lost.”
