What about the human race that scares you the most
Why some people can't stand horror movies
To this day I still haven't got a film from the Halloween- Row seen. This is probably due to a childhood trauma: Back then, my older brother often gave me the scary one just to terrorize me Theme song of the horror classic. My inability to see anything creepier than A Quiet Place, Of course, I don't know what I can say for sure: I can't stand horror films. That's why I'm afraid of missing out on reading the Wikipedia entry for a horror film rather than watching the film myself. I want to have a say without having to be afraid.
But why is it really that some people can't get enough of horror films, while others freeze their blood at the thought of it? There are several reasons for this.
One is that some people just prefer to feel intense emotions than others. This phenomenon is called the need for affect and is differently pronounced from person to person. A 2010 study found that people with higher affect needs were more likely to enjoy watching horror movies more than those with lower affect needs. Some of us naturally look for more thrills, while others react more strongly to fear and therefore prefer to drive around it.
There are also personal experiences. Margee Kerr is a sociologist and author of the book: Scream: Chilling Adventures in the Science of Fear. She says, “Some people have had bad experiences with horror films or scary stories and automatically associate such things with something negative. That's just conditioning. They just don't enjoy being scared. ”She also says that some people use scary films as an outlet to deal with stress and fear in a protected space without having to face the consequences in real life. But that doesn't work for everyone. “It depends on whether people want to be scared, what to expect, and what kind of stories they like,” explains Kerr. “From a purely psychological point of view, we feel confident and competent when we go through a scary situation. Our brain does not differentiate between reality and fiction and evaluates what has been "lived through", even if it is only a film, as a success. That can be a real boost for self-confidence. "
In my eyes, the emphasis here is on the word "can". Personally, I certainly don't get a boost in self-confidence when I'm scared. I don't want to be scared, I want my peace and quiet. You can celebrate Halloween without me again this year.
