Question: how come people act the way they do?

Keywords: ,

  1. That’s a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge question@kitty123 – like really huge! There are a gazillion books that try to explain this in Psychology.

    It comes down to being a combination of your personality, your learning experiences, your emotions, your attitudes and your behaviours.

    In general, I think that people usually act the way they do because they find acting that way rewarding in some way. Not always, and sometimes people experiment with new behaviours, but often, if something works ‘for’ someone – they’ll do it again.

  2. Because our brains think something and make us act it out, whether it’s good or bad. Sometimes people aren’t quick enough to stop doing something even though they know it’s wrong, but a great number of people might think some strange things but never act them out.
