    The hidden masks of people.

    For whatever reason I cannot explain, I seem to sense people as they are not, but should be. Why is my question? In time they do not seem what they act like. I am becoming suspicious of everybody I meet. What emotion causes this behavior (becoming suspicious and why people aren't what they...

    I fantasize about killing myself and other people too

    I feel that I am losing control over myself. It's been a month if not more, that I have been fantasizing about killing people, and it has been a year or so that I have been fantasizing about killing myself.

    Why Do People Put Themselves In Denial?

    Hey, I'm having a project, and would like to ask a question. Why do people that go through a traumatic experience of lost put themselves in denial and never lose hopes? (e.g. someone that's lost his son in a plane accident in the army, and still believe that there is still chance and he's gotta...

    People who try and test you

    I'm wondering what motivates people to try and test others to see what they can get away with. Personally, I've never felt the need to test others so I'm at a loss as to why someone would behave like this. Is it just a matter of seeing if others will allow you to treat them badly? I've run...

    Psychology, Why people think what they think?

    I am beginning to regret getting into understanding psychology or why people think what they think? The mind can be simple and complex. It seems to me that complexity seems to be the answer when there is more people than less people. It also seems outside circumstances move us to question why...

    Science FICTION to Science FACT yet scientist look down on creative people!

    Today I've learned something from the posting of people in this forum, and I'm always glad to learn something new, especially in psychology as I like to learn about behaviour. Today I've learned that science minded people tend to look down on creative people. Why is this? I can only speculate...

    Do you know what I'm talking about? There are some people who are always worried about everything! (most people fit into THIS category). They'll say things like: "What if I fail the exam and not get into University!" "What if I can't find a job after finishing school!&quot...

    Why people do what they do.

    :)With all people the need a history of why they do what they do is neccessary. Whatever the reason rational or illrational (did I spell that right) a reason exists. The mind can be excdeedingly complex. Eventually with time some truth might come to light. pljames

    Why do people watch horror/gore movies??

    Thanks to Zepher08, I modified the question. This is quite uh.. quite a bit easier. What drives people's behavior of watching scenes that they consider "horrible?" Does anyone have an opinion? so for example, you would imagine that violent murder scene in a movie or an music video...
