Horror films are very popular among young people. Some of them want to tickle their nerves, having experienced fear and excitement, but there are those who go there exclusively to look at the scenes of violence and bloodshed, which in modern cinema there are plenty of. What is even worse is that the directors and screenwriters cease to focus on those spectators who go to watch the film only for the sake of increasing adrenaline in blood. They add more and more unpleasant scenes to their films with dismemberment and sophisticated murders, torture, which basically cause not fear at all, but the most natural disgust. And someone likes it … There are people who really have moral satisfaction from what they saw. And then they ask themselves, but is it normal?
Is it normal to love violence
On the one hand, this is quite normal and can be associated with an unpleasant experienced moment from childhood. Psychologists believe that the child could become a spectator of the humiliation of the person who would initially seem to him by the authority, whom he would respect. It is possible that it was a humiliation of one parent to another. The picture seen from childhood leaves its mark on the subconscious of a given person. The subsequent desire to see humiliation again, can be explained by the fact that then the child liked how his authority could withstand and endure this blow. This situation can even be forgotten, but at the sight of a similar situation (for example, on the TV screen), a person experiences the “nostalgia” of the moment experienced and the victim at the emotional level is perceived by him, as the authority long forgotten by him.
This may also be due to the fact that once this person himself was a victim. Difficult childhood, brutal attitude from parents, or aggression emanating from peers – all this can cause. But, unlike the first option, now a person likes the victim itself in violence, but the rapist itself, because once morally or physically (and maybe all together) a humiliated person dreamed of retaliation.
Is it normal to love violence
The psyche is in fact, very vulnerable. Injuries that the child is caused during its formation forever leave a mark on his further development, views, some personal qualities. Violence is cruelty, and it can be perceived by our subconscious, as a protection that a person once needed.
Of course, there are times when this is due to the deviations of the psyche. But this is most often supported by something: strange behavior, trembling hands, inclinations to the independent manifestation of violence or a voluntary desire to become a victim. This is already backed not only by the trauma experienced, but also by deformation of the psyche, exposure to stress and depression. Perhaps this is a kind of quenching of their sexual needs, which is also abnormal. If you notice these actions for yourself or your acquaintances, then seek help from specialists.
