Study says humans crave violence like they crave sex

it's true....i get this huge craving for ripping someone's head off right after i wake up...
 
Hmmm, I disagree with this. I am not drawn to violence--and I get nothing out of gorey films or other forms of violent entertainment. I can't even stand the sight of blood. So I definitely don't crave it the same way I have an appetite for sex.

Of course, some might say that sex is a form of violence, so go figure. :o
 
Thx god for GTA...when there are days you want to mow down wiseguys:o
 
Mmmmm....violent sex. Mmmmmmm...

jag
 
I can see it being in our baser, primitive nature. True. But years of societal conditioning has probably overridden the tendency towards violent acts in many people.
 
many but not all ;)
 
Not all humans.

figure it has more to do with being part of repressed, selfish cultures.
 
I'm starting to think a lot of studeis generalize entirely too much.
 
Of course they do all general rules have there exceptions but the large majority generally fit the profile one way or the other.
 
Oooo baby, first I'm gonna stamp on your fingers, then I'm gonna gut punch you. Yeah, you like that? Good! Then I'm gonna turn you round and stab you in the back and pull your hair. I'm gonna throw you to the ground and jump on you, then I'm gonna bite you and make you BLEED. I'm gonna pull your eyes out and squish them under my size elevens. Then I'm gonna get my pliars and pull your teeth and tongue out.

Ohhhhhhhh.

Was it good for you?

*Lights cigarette*
 
Probabley right. Why some people love stuff like ultimate fighter and torture porn I have no idea but they do.
 
this is true think about it

I'm walking down the street, see someone who is hot and think "I want to **** you"

and

I'm walking down the street, see someone who has hamster cheeks and think " dear god I want to punch you"

the scientist have got it right
 
I think we just crave excitement in life.
The way we are wired, it's inevitable that violence and sex will invoke strong reactions.

We are wired to like sex for the obvious reason of passing on genes, but I don't think we are exactly wired to enjoy violence, except maybe the adrenaline rush those situations might provoke.

I feel our reactions to violence will be dependent on our interpretation of it.
A lot of people are bored with their life of predictable routine, so they'll go to nascar, see people driving insanely fast and possibly crashing.
Back in the days they're miserable lives were atoned for by the slaughters that ensued in the Colosseums.

Your reaction to violence will be deeply dependent on the dominant world view of the society you inhabit. America is a war nation, the idea that you guys love violence will be promoted.

Go to a Buddhist nation and you'll find out we aren't predisposed to seek violence.

You never fail to make me laugh :D
 
I think video games and movies help this craving so people don't do it in real life. :o

That's the catharsis theory first brought up by Aristotle, and it's definitely a good point.
But there are still non-violent outliers that don't need such outlets and don't seek it in its true form either.
 
True...but tis better to let out these feelings through a non-violent means than to actually commit the act. :o
