Fear can alter a person 's behavior so much that they often become a different person. It can cause hostility and can make anybody unreasonably terrified of something so simple. The person or subject that is making the irrational decision would not notice the good from bad decisions. Also fear makes the subject believe whatever scenario they makeup to just put themselves farther away from what they are scared of. Such a strong feeling can constantly begin appearing more frequently than other emotions.
Human Behavior and Fear Safa Multani Fear is an unpleasant caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain or a threat. (Mariams Webster). Fear is a thing we all hold inside of us, we are all scared of something or someone it's just human nature. In Lord of the Flies, William Golding uses a unique way of showing how fear affects human behavior, he used the boys on the island to show how fear affects the behavior of humans and how the boy's manner and mentality changed over time. From when the boys first came on the island they are actions were normal then later on as the boys started gaining the fear of the beast they started doing abnormal actions they took certain steps because of the fear in them that had been planted by the beast in this case.
Chapter 2 of Opening Skinner’s Box explains that people abandon their core beliefs in order to satisfy some primal need to conform. Though in the chapter, it applies more directly to submitting to a specific authority, it also references an individual abandoning their own opinion (even if they are obviously right) in order to match with a larger group of people. In times of stress, we find comfort in being part of a group. The boy’s experience on the island could definitely be considered stressful, and the sheer amount of danger that they were in was a large enough scare to the boys to cause them to abandon their good British morals and adopt a mob mentality. They lost themselves and killed a boy with their bare hands in a sea of dirt, sweat, and fear
Anxiety, like Grendel causes you to feel alone, attacks innocent people, and creates jealousy of others happiness. Grendel has been isolated into darkness, causing him to be miserable. For example, “A powerful monster, living down in the darkness, growled in pain,” he chooses to isolate himself from all people because he is a coward (lines 1-2). Grendel represents that Anglo-Saxon theme stating that without companionship, one cannot survive. When confronted in a battle with Beowulf, he becomes fearful, weak, and
This proves his hunger for power so well because there is no other reason to take off her leg except to have power over her. He is not going to use it, he is not going to sell it, the one and only reason why he would steal her leg is to have complete control over her. Another example of power-hunger taking over someone’s emotions is in “The Veldt”, when George decides to shut off the nursery, the enchanting room his kids love so much. The devastated children feel completely powerless as their love was taken away from them, as they proceeded to “[scream] and [prance] and [throw] things. They yelled and sobbed and swore and jumped on the furniture”(Bradbury 8).
It explains that harsh reality that life is not bliss and other people work against you all the time, even those you love. Everyone knows what it feels like to fear what others may think of you, to fear the judgment. It is more difficult if the fear is from someone who one should be able to trust. “Fearing the chronic angers” (41), that judgment brings and fuels society. Along with the judgment, society begins to treat others different for having those fears.
Golding uses a group of boys to show that even in, children, the thing society sees as the most innocent can still become corrupted by an environment full of evil. Golding creates the character, Jack, the tough hunter but it takes Jack a little while to completely take on this role. In the quote, “‘I was going to,’ said Jack. He was ahead of them, and they could not see his face” (Golding 31), Readers can see Jack fail to kill a pig, Jack makes excuses as to why he did not kill it, however the reader can infer Jack did not have the heart to kill it because of his morals. Jack still has his initial innocence but later Golding shows how Jack will break his morals.
This is a prejudice that has always been pushed onto him and he himself promotes as truth so that people who target him will leave him alone. However, Shrek in reality is none of these stereotypes and only promotes the ideas so that people will be too scared to try and kill him. When Shrek brings Fiona to Lord Farquaad, Farquaad says that “You don’t have to waste good manners on the ogre. It’s not like it has any feelings” he and many others have belittled Shek with this prejudice to make him angry and resentful. This causes Shrek to lash out at even those he cares about, such as Donkey and Fiona, shunning himself from society.
