Agadir - When a number of symptoms start to manifest themselves in the behavior of a young individual, the person is said to have the “grandfather syndrome.” Examples of such symptoms would be withdrawing from social activities, not taking part in sports activities, demonstrating signs of premature or artificial wisdom, adopting a too philosophical approach to life and shying away from making any sustained physical effort or any kind of risk taking. The list could be extended some more to cover all attitudes and ways to approach life old people or senior citizens do actually demonstrate.
