Maybe more aptly: who are they?
The psychological person is so necessarily by their being embedded in society among other, conscious agents.
As both conscious and societal, the psychological person has the following attributes:
- They have a mind.
- They engage in behaviors.
- They have a distinct personality.
- They respond to situations.
- They experience.
- They sense and perceive.
- They think, feel, and motivate.
- They pay attention.
- They recall and foresee.
- They learn.
What might this mean for the person who may not have a personality or general life situation? What if they don’t think, feel, or motivate? Surely, they must experience as a conscious being. Further, personhood has been granted according to societal status over the centuries. Societal, conscious personage is a keenly biosocial label. (If someone ceases to be alive medically, they are no longer technically a “person”.)
The psychological person is biosocial! Another way to say this is that people are biopsychosocial. Some may be more or less psychological than others in certain respects…
