There is a huge difference between behaving “childish” and being “childlike”. It seems that society constantly confuses these two completely different types of behavior. Furthermore, these two concepts have completely different connotations negative and positive, the first one refers to immature and silly behavior which isn’t and shouldn’t be socially accepted when it comes to the adults. But the second one indicated that you as an adult managed to keep the best qualities and character traits that a human being can have. And we’re talking here about the personal qualities like honesty, authenticity, curiosity, excitement, amazement, openness and unrestricted creativity.
