Infatuation is the state of being carried away by unreasoned passion or love. Hillman and Phillips describe it as a desire to express the libidinal attraction of addictive love. Usually, one is inspired with an intense but short-lived passion or admiration for someone.
Three types of infatuation have been identified by Brown: the first, and perhaps most common, being a state of ‘being carried away, without insight or proper evaluative judgement, by blind desire’. The second, ‘evaluation…may well be sound although the craving or love remains unaffected by it’; while ‘a third type is that of the agent who exhibits bad judgement and misevaluation for reasons such as ignorance or recklessness’, regardless of their desire.
