Why are people so attracted to evil characters?

Whether it 's on television or in a movie , we all love bad characters or villains . No matter how selfish, power-hungry, or greedy such a person is , many of us are still drawn to their dark side , in part because we suspect that some of them may have a good quality in them . itself . _

In fact, according to a new study from the University of Michigan, USA, both adults and children more often reported that villains were better on the inside than heroes , who are thought to they are bad inside.

"So people believe that there is a discrepancy between the external behavior of a bad person and their inner self , and this is a bigger gap for negative characters than for heroes , " says Valeri Umsheid , Ph.D. psychology at this university , and the main author of the study .

Ums Heid and her colleagues conducted three studies with 434 children (ages 4-12) and 277 adults to determine how individuals perceive antisocial acts committed by bad people . They focused on the participants' judgments about the negative characters and fictional heroes known or new , such as Ursula from " The Little Mermaid " and Udi from " Toy Story " .

Study 1 revealed that children saw the actions and emotions of the latter characters as very negative . This suggests that children 's well-documented tendency to judge people as good does not preclude appreciation of extreme forms of their evil .

Studimet 2 dhe 3, vlerësuan besimet e fëmijëve dhe të rriturve në lidhje me karakterin moral dhe veten e vërtetë të heronjve dhe personazheve të këqij, duke përdorur një sërë dëshmish konvergjente, përfshirë mënyrën se si një personazh ndihej së brendshmi, nëse veprimet e një personazhi pasqyronin veten e tyre të vërtetë, dhe nëse kjo e fundit mund të ndryshojë me kalimin e kohës.

Përmes këtyre masave, studimi tregoi se si fëmijët ashtu edhe të rriturit e vlerësonin vazhdimisht veten e vërtetë të personazheve të tilla si jashtëzakonisht të këqij dhe shumë më negativ sesa heronjtë. Njëkohësisht, studiuesit zbuluan një asimetri në gjykime, ku personazhet negative kishin më shumë gjasa sesa heronjtë që të kishin një vetvete të vërtetë ndryshonte nga sjellja e tyre e jashtme. Umsheid tha se si fëmijët ashtu edhe të rriturit besonin se personazhet si Ursula had some inner goodness, regardless of the bad or immoral actions they regularly commit./ MedicalXPress
