With the fortieth birthday of reform and opening up, China has entered a new era in the expectation of the Chinese people and the attention of the world. This era is full of new opportunities and new challenges, and China is now in a critical period of social transformation and national reform, and many social problems have surfaced. Social mentality is a reflection of social consciousness in the current development of society, and its good or bad directly maps out and reflects on the development and progress of the country. China is now facing a critical point of reform and transformation in political, economic, social, cultural and ecological aspects. The difficult transition from the old to the new system, the widening gap between the rich and the poor, the misleading media and the lack of education all contribute to the creation and growth of bad social mentality. This paper will mainly discuss in detail the three undesirable social mentality, namely flippant and impetuous, irritability and indifference, firstly explaining their intrinsic meanings and characteristics, then introducing the various causes and internal links for their emergence, and using real-life cases to depict and argue them, and finally proposing corresponding solutions for different levels, in the hope of arousing widespread concern and resonance.
