Shelves: psychology, china
This book explicitly analyzes the Chinese nationality to reach the seemingly outrageous conclusion that most Chinese today have the mental status of an infant. Though psychoanalysis isn't often taken seriously as science these days, I still found the book quite insightful and meaningful. To most Chinese readers, the study on Chinese nationalities/characteristics has long been stuck in the perceptions made by Bo Yang almost over a decade ago and since then no new publications had come out in a su ...more

春节里读完的一本书,对书中关于巨婴的定义和各种表现,读来是很有共鸣的。原因的分析和处在其中的感受也让我有感同身受的感受。武老师是心理专业出身,成长在中国国内,对现象的描述很犀利很精准。不过我觉得辩证来看原因和影响的话,书中的观点略微偏激了。作为对民情的了解,可以看看。

失望,本以为会是比较专业的心理学分析,但是一开始就用什么自己做的梦啊什么的来解说,神神叨叨的一大堆,毫无逻辑性和事实依据,也没有什么文学性,再读下去只会感觉浪费时间,遂弃。

花兩天看完這本超精彩的書..原來我們或多或少都是一個巨嬰.
對華人民族性的表面不自私(群體性), 暗地卻是超級不守規(變相的個人性), 尤其在交通上面.
更讓外國人驚訝的是我們對犯規不遵守交通規則的人卻也不會去檢舉當個正義之士.
但一旦今天犯錯的是我們, 我們卻爭得面紅耳赤的.
為何我們都是一隻尚未長大的龍?動不動不順眼就玻璃心受傷噴火了?
看完這本書我真的了解不少了!很多疑問豁然開朗!
就如筆者所寫: 奉獻犧牲的媽媽, 被過度保護的孩子(一般指兒子 因為重男輕女的傳統), 無解的婆媳關係, 缺席的公公
這些都是養成"巨嬰"的必要條件.....

很受益良多的一本書!! 超級推薦!

..................以下為我喜歡的段落

台灣學者孫隆基則直接認為,國人的大小便訓練方式,是導致無數種不 文明現象的根源。在《中國文化的深層結構》一書中,他闡述說: 一些在大陸普遍存在,在香港與台灣也仍然可以見到的現象——隨地吐痰、吐口水、擰鼻涕、當眾挖鼻屎、搓身上的老泥、在人群中放屁、吃飯時將骨頭吐在桌上(在公眾食堂則吐在地上)、將公眾場所當作隨便可以丟垃圾以及倒污水的地方、不守時間、不守規則、沒有排隊的習慣、對

It’s a 4.5-Star for me.

是一本今年读过让我思考最多,反思最多的一本书。作者武志红将自己21年来的心理咨询和对自我的观察审视经验,总结出了巨婴及其特点与国人普遍人格的联系,以及更深一层地,这个巨婴的特性似乎为整个中华文化,家庭,社会秩序,奠定了基调。看似十分复杂,深刻的国民性剖析,用巨婴这个概念以贯穿,似乎一下明了了。

阅读期间,我也不断地反思自己,回观身边的人与事,或者说,自己与这些人与事建立的联系。让我开心的是,我发现了心理学和灵性,心灵成长这种课题的关系是如此密切。最近也在接触灵性,心灵成长的读物与课程,巨婴国里用心理学角度的观点,进一步道出我在身心灵领域看到的一些概念背后的道理,也算是知识巩固加豁然开朗吧。更了解到,心灵成长,身心的健康,是真实,实实在在的东西。

我们从小也许都有意无意地受了一些心灵伤。父母从婴儿时期的养育,和与宝宝的互动,是无比的有影响力。然而,从宝宝阶段受了父母和家庭伤的人们,认识到原因后,与其抱怨忧伤,倒不如自我复原。在我看来,心灵和个人的成长,就是一个自我疗伤的过程。通过提高自己的觉知力,情绪力,勇敢面对那个心中黑暗的角落,注视,接纳它,

谈国民的“自大”的劣根性一针见血;讲中国的“愚孝”对孩子的迫害痛快淋漓。会中文的要读。

I was expecting a lot from such a controversial title and theory. This book left me quite disappointed. 'Proof' of his theories were simply random analogies or news stories. It wasn't academic as I expected. I also found this book to simply be far too long at 500 pages. It was repetitive at times and also didn't go into some interesting social issues like 富二代 in the kind of detail I expected. I gave up after around a hundred pages.

选择这本书是因为被书名吸引了。巨婴,成长不健全的‘’成年人‘’,在当代社会并不陌生。‘’共生心理,催生了集体主义;集体主义,催生了中国好人‘’ 武志红,心理医生,讲述了根据他的一些临床经验对国人的普遍大众心理分析。不过有个小疑惑,这本书在国内 可能会成禁书吧?

看这本书是在挖掘我们中国人的社会特征也是在发现自己,我常常看着文字便觉得在与作者对话,谢谢这本书我了解自己更多!4颗星是因为有些部分缺乏流畅,部分观点我个人觉得还是不够充分。

同样我期待英文版。
