They very consciously use their experience to adjust to changes in the world, which they really want to “just slow down”, not necessarily reject. The past is more real to them than the future. They believe they are normal. They want answers not more questions. They are more “rational” than “emotional”. They take roles, not personas - i.e. everyone has a part to play and it a duty to perform, not an option.

They believe that life can be much simpler than it is at the moment.
