So, I seem to have this problem....and I want to know if I'm the only one.

Okay so, a few days ago, there was this old lady in front of me and she was walking slow. Sure I was annoyed but I wasn't in a hurry or anything so it was fine. But then, I had this really weird desire that came out of nowhere! Suddenly, I really wanted to tackle this lady from behind!!! Why the heck would I do that?? The lady is just walking! She didn't do anything to me.

Then, a while back I was driving and then came to a red light. There was this cop car stopped in front of me. All of a sudden, I wanted to ram the cop car from behind! What the heck was that?? I knew that if I did that I would go to jail. Why the heck would I even want to do that anyway? I could hurt myself AND the guy in the car.

Don't worry, I didn't do either of those things. I'm just wondering if anyone had strange desires like these and what you did. Why do you think these thoughts come like they do. O_O

Any feedback greatly appreciated

You may have a minute degree Obsessive-compulsive disorder. It's the same thing that can make mothers think about killing their own children, even if the mere idea of doing so is frightening beyond belief to them.
I have it like that sometimes too. It's a common thing amongst people with aspergers syndrome, which I have.

It's really annoying, and it's not at all the kind of person I am.

An old man told his grandson:
"My son, there's a battle between two wolves inside us all.
One is Evil.
It's anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
The other is Good.
It's joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness and truth."
The boy thought about it and asked:
"Grandfather, which wolf wins?".
The old man quietly replied:
"The one you feed."

I have sometimes wondered what it would be like to do something impulsively bad, but usually the thought passes very quickly, after I consider the possibility of the act. The act of having such thoughts is a very rare occurrence for me and it usually happens as a matter of me trying to amuse myself during a moment of boredom. I don't have any mental issues that I am aware of and I am content to not spend lots of time worrying about such thoughts, as long as I don't act on them.

Hmm...not really sure about that. I rarely have these feelings so i'm not sure it would be called obsessive. Its just really strange. I don't know...

i have thought about different ways of killing someone xD

and i didn't do it just for fun or a joke either. it just came to me i suppose.



I'm as normal as a person can get, health-wise, I don't have any condition.

I suppose you and I, we're just honest about what we feel. Most people wouldn't admit they have these thoughts because they're scared of being branded as "criminals" or "weird".


But I think, that these thoughts are natural. We are animals after all. We have instincts and desire to kill. We're not born with morals. I already discussed this in length with someone on here, so I'm not going to discuss it again lol.

I think it amounts to just normal curiosity for most folks. Watch kids for a while, they'll shove each other down and throw things at each other with a big smile. It's just a natural thought process.

If you had a hard time controlling such impulses I'd probably be more worried, but random thoughts like that are very normal, even though I doubt many people like to admit that.

Don't worry. You're not the only one. You have to remember: we're animals. It's a natural response for an animal to show some sort of dominant hierarchy over things. It's what we do. It's what drives us. Animals naturally hate being told what to do, where we should go, etc. Does it mean we're all going to kill each other for sport. Maybe some, but not all. You're going through nothing more than a territorial dispute thought, even though you're not really in your "territory". Enjoy.

I only want to do that when it's a wall of people blocking my exit. Two or three of them, walking next to each other in slow motion. I want to beat them repeatedly in the back of the head with a hammer.

I get weird impulses to touch other people's hair. Dunno why. Looks soft. That sounds a bit weirder than an impulse to push someone, doesn't it?

In the words of Dr. Steven Pinker: three quarters of all men admit to having fantasized about killing someone, half of all women admit the same -- and the rest are liars.

Mine aren't that frequent either. But I do have them.
I just used the term OCD because it was the best english medical term I could to the word we use as a paralell to the word we use in norwegian.
We use the term "tvangstanker", which basicly means "forced thoughts", and it's an actual medical condition.
