How do Ants face psychological distress?
Recently, there is a word that vividly reflects the difficult living conditions of post-80s college graduates, which is “ant family”.
This group of people has the characteristics of “high intelligence, weak, social group”. Although they have received higher education, their income is very small.
The reason why this group of college graduate low-income people are called “ant tribe” is that although their individuals are “weak” like ants, they have a lot of strength.
A significant number of them were involved in online mass incidents, certain online signatures, online controversy, human flesh searches, etc.
This article will analyze the cause of the formation of the “ant family”, the possible psychological problems and the coping methods.
The roots of the formation of the “ant family” started in 1999. From a social perspective, the formation of the ant family began in 2003 when the first batch of college students expanded.
A huge employment peak was formed at that time, and the number of graduates has increased sharply since then.
According to the “Social Blue Book” of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, the number of college graduates in 2009 increased by about 500,000 from the 5.99 million in 2008, resulting in an oversupply of the talent market.
In the corner of the ant snail house, eight people lived in one house.
The disconnection of university specialty setting and market demand is another important reason for the formation of the “ant family”.
To be precise, some people with vocational education find it easier to find good jobs than college students.
A large part of the “ant family” group’s military marketing jobs, although there is no professional requirement and school discrimination, but the competition is fierce, resulting in thin competition, and they have to live in a village.
Obviously, the attractiveness of big cities has also exacerbated the growth of settlement villages.
According to the survey, nearly half of the college graduates who live in it choose to stay because they believe that Beijing has many job opportunities and an excellent urban environment.
The “ant tribe” is prone to certain psychological problems. For a long time, the “ant tribe” is a group of people ignored by society. It is estimated that there are more than 100,000 in Beijing.
Lian Si, an associate professor at the Peking University Law School, lasted 2 years and went to Tangjialing and other places. After a large number of case studies and data analysis, he wrote a monograph entitled “Anthropology-A Record of the Villages of University Graduates”.
In the past two years, the research team assigned 563 questionnaires to seven “resorts” in the townships of Haidian District, Changping District, Dongbeiwang, Xibeiwang, Erlizhuang Xiaoyuehe, Shahe Town, and Xiaojiahe.”” Basic analysis of work, study, marriage, amateur life, online behavior, etc.
The final investigation evidence triggered was that poor living conditions of low-income graduates, lack of social security, great changes in thoughts and emotions, mainly rely on the Internet to vent.
Experts say that college students who have just graduated are not positioned correctly enough, and they are likely to encounter setbacks in the process of adapting to society, and may cause psychological problems such as anxiety, depression, and hostility.
The survey showed that there were as high as 74.
The 8% growth rate is most dissatisfied with their economic income, and the most satisfied is their interpersonal relationships.
Persistent “ant families” have higher average scores than normal adults in the evaluation of factors such as compulsion, depression, hostility, sensitive interpersonal relationships, worry, and paranoia.
The “ant tribe” ‘s psychological distortion should be debugged. Most of the “ant tribe” have their own dreams, some kind of hope that there will be a car in three years, a house in five years.
Although these dreams are their greatest spiritual support, according to the current situation, those who can realize their dreams and move away from the village are rare.
Persistent “ant families”, a large number of people participated in network mass incidents, certain network signatures, online controversy, human flesh search, etc.
This means that if there is no reasonable way of venting, the “ant tribe” may promote the outbreak of sexual events in groups through the interaction of the virtual environment and the real environment, which will affect itself and society.
For the post-80s generation, the age they lived in was just in the period of social transformation, some common social contradictions, the unemployment rate rose, urbanization was relatively equal, and their growth experience was transitioned.
When the difference between ideal and reality makes people feel cruel, it is also normal to have corresponding negative emotions, and it may also become one of the variable factors of society.
This may be the first reason that this group has attracted widespread media attention.
In addition to the self-regulating ability to be moved closer, the relevant departments of the settlements should pay attention to the changing trend of this group.
For young people with psychological problems, timely counselling and treatment should be given to find a place for them to express their emotional appeals.
Regarding the psychological problems such as compulsiveness, depression, sensitive interpersonal relationships, anxiety, and paranoia that may occur in the ant family mentioned above, if you want to find the best adjustment method, please consult your psychologist.
