The ideal is the essence of perfection. But the average modern person does not strive for perfection. What matters to him is not what he will become,but what he will have. In modern man, the desire to possess some things is primary before the desire to master talents, skills, and knowledge. Therefore, the average representative of modern society does not have an ideal as such. The representation of the ideal is replaced by a pattern of behavior from using certain things. The essence of the videos of the most popular YouTube bloggers is the use of the most modern, expensive and fashionable things. This is all the aspirations of the vast majority of people. But the true sequence is different-first a person strives for the ideal of improvement, developing talents, skills, knowledge, and already with their help produces useful and necessary things for their further development. The current conjuncture will not last long (even now, humanity is showing an inability to adequately respond to modern challenges). Most people will soon lose the ability to produce competitive products, and artificial intelligence will take their place. Those who retain the ability to improve will be able to compete with AI, and the standard of living of all others will be controlled by the owners of AI.
There can't just be an ideal, a certain person, because different tasks and living conditions require different qualities. The areas of people's activities and possible situations are too vast to specifically single out something absolutely universal. With a stretch, it is possible in principle to attribute to the ideal of a modern person, someone who is able to quickly learn the necessary skills, is purposeful and has a stable psyche. Because in comparison with past times, everything is changing much faster and the amount of knowledge received by humanity is increasing every year faster than before. And the psyche of some people may suffer from this. Some people get confused in life, get neurosis, nervous exhaustion, stress, behavioral abnormalities, etc.
