Idealists refer to those who believe that ultimate reality consists of ideas or perceptions and is therefore not physical.
In the psychology context, idealists are individuals who tend to focus on what they believe to be morally right, just, and fair. They may have a strong sense of purpose and a desire to make a positive impact on the world around them. Idealists often have a high degree of empathy and are driven by a desire to help others.
Some examples of idealists include:
Mahatma Gandhi - an Indian independence activist who fought for the rights of the oppressed and marginalized.
Martin Luther King Jr. - an American Baptist minister who fought for the civil rights of African Americans through nonviolent protests and civil disobedience.
Mother Teresa - a Roman Catholic nun who dedicated her life to helping the poor and sick in India.
Nelson Mandela - a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary who fought against racial discrimination and segregation.
Idealists may be characterized as being optimistic and hopeful, but they may also be seen as naïve or unrealistic. They may prioritize their values and beliefs over practical considerations and may be more concerned with the big picture than with details. However, their passion and dedication to their causes can inspire others and make a positive impact on society.
