Aristotle's secondary teaching…
Specialist Clinical Psychologist Merve Umay Candaş Demir, stating that Aristotle's "middle teaching" comes to mind when stinginess is mentioned, "If we consider this teaching briefly, Aristotle wants to leave a book to his son Nicomachus and writes a book called "Ethics for Nicomachus". The beginning of this book opens with the exploration of the good, which is defined as 'what everything desires', and what is good is answered in the sequel. The point reached by going through many intellectual stages, according to Aristotle, is good, 'the activity of the soul in accordance with virtue'. said.
Virtues of thought are formed by education, virtues of character by habit.
Demir, who noted that there was a discussion of what virtue is from this point of view, said, “Virtue is divided into character virtues and thought virtues. While the virtues of thought are those that are formed and developed by education; character virtues are formed by habit. None of the virtues of character are innate in us. He carries the potential of human character virtues and then puts it into action by doing. However, it is not enough to say that virtue is a habit, a character; what kind of a habit he is is pursued. Virtue is associated with being medium. It is concluded that the virtuous person is the one who does the middle and the best by acting as necessary, against the necessary things, against the necessary people, when necessary. In that case, the expression 'virtue has to be related to influences and actions whose excess is wrong, whose deficiency is blamed, whose middle is praised and right' is used. he said.
The stinginess is seen at the extremes of the golden middle state
Specialist Clinical Psychologist Merve Umay Candaş Demir, who states that there are two extreme points representing evil and a middle point representing virtue (good) in every emotion or action in this so-called "middle way" or "golden middle", said, "For example, cowardice - courage, generosity - stinginess. … From this point of view, stinginess is seen as at the extremes of our golden middle status. When we look at the psychopathology existing in psychology, stinginess cannot be defined as a disease in itself. However, being stingy and reaching the point where this situation harms the person and the environment is the "determinant" of some diseases. This can often be evaluated in terms of personality disorders.” said.
stingy people get power from money
Specialist Clinical Psychologist Merve Umay Candaş Demir said, “When we look at the criteria for Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder, we see the expressions 'to save money for a future disaster'. At this point, it would be wrong to say that every person who saves money has a personality disorder. However, if a person has a stingy character that reduces their quality of life, it can be said that these people see money as a security base. These people get trust from money. Money can mean power to them.” said.
Elon Musk was psychologically challenged during his childhood
Specialist Clinical Psychologist Merve Umay Candaş Demir evaluated the situation of Elon Musk, who came to the fore with the allegation of being stingy recently, and said, “As the child of a divorced family, she chose to stay with her father, but we read from her own life story that she had psychological difficulties in the process. Musk, who does not experience financial difficulties, is described as a child who is excluded from his peers, loves to read in his own shell, and does not waste his time.” said.
We must direct our actions towards the middle
Specialist Clinical Psychologist Merve Umay Candaş Demir, who stated that as a result of Elon Musk's inability to establish a healthy relationship of trust with his family, established many companies for self-realization as the most important goal of all of us in life, and that she is among the richest in the world, concluded her words as follows:
“Despite this, the last period has come to the fore especially with the interviews of ex-girlfriends. However, when we look at the content, we read that although Musk has established many charities, when it comes to his private life, he uses the money little enough to reduce his quality of life. Although this situation is interpreted as the meaninglessness of money and its approach that its existence cannot be realized with the returns of money, it can be said that when we consider this situation for different people, this stinginess has become a situation that should be taken seriously when it harms the quality of life of family members. Then, when we direct our actions according to the middle one, we create a much healthier living space for both ourselves and our family.”
