Seemingly nice people can suddenly become cruel and sadistic, without warning?
Is it true we all have a 'dark side."?

we all do have a dark side because we're human, but i dont believe that we can all become cruel and sadistic in a moment. we could say that our dark side more or less aggressive, depending on the individual, their life experiences, and their responses to particular situations.1
Well... my dark side is there.
I just compress it very well.
When I find myself in deep dark thoughts.. I switch my mind and try to think more optimistically or more like a "sane person".
What separates human beings from someone that is mentally insane is that... we have the ability to turn those negative thoughts off (like a light switch), and not act on them.0

no human being can be without a dark side, there will always be a little dark about them but what counts is to how extent they have it. :)1
I wouldn't say everyone has a cruel or sadistic side but I think everyone has their limits when it comes to their temper or how easy or hard it is for someone to get angry.0
Its the nice ones you need to watch out for lol0
Definitely. Even if people don't know it yet, they can snap with ZERO warning.0
Yes! The Milgram Shock Experiment and the Stanford Prison Experiment proves this!1
maybe but i hope it stays dormant in most people0
I have dark thoughts, but I do not act on them.0

We are all capable of dark, cruel and even sadistic things. Not so much without warning though you could have that side of you already unlocked so to speak and switch to it without warning.
I'm about the nicest, kindest guy around but when and if somebody puts their hands on my family, myself or my partner I can tell you I can quickly become the coldest, scariest guy you've seen ( but only to bad people who deserve it, never to family and never to my partner )0
I have a foul temper at the moment. Noticing the bad in others, is the same bad that you carry, gives you tremendous empathy. But most people project their badness onto others.0
Yes, I'm very calm and I absorb everything against me quite well. Usually I don't lose my mind but rarely it happens. Even though in those rare events that dark side dissolves within mind, last year because of BS by college management I lost control and literally dominated and kicked their asses. Slammed table, verbally abused them and made them apologise to me and other affected students. Usually I can't even speak lol. Whole class and staff was like "WTF! / Is he the same guy? / WOW! / Psycho" etc.
I lost it just once recently but that was awesome experience hahaha.0
Of course ;)
Absolutely. Deny people a few basic necessities and it'll come out in full rage within a matter of days.0
My behavior is highly dependent on context and the conditions provided by a given scenario.
But I do my best to avoid this type of stuff happening, even though I'm usually capable of seeing how I could be. It's a curse, really.0
and vice versa..."cruel people" have a bright side0
Im sweet as candy but I am not one to piss off. I go from happy to angry I skip annoyed.0
Yes, all humans have so called "dark side". The thing is that our moral principles, spiritual values and parenting "locks up that dark side" inside us and, depending of how we follow all those "rules", people are considered good or bad.0
I have a twin brother so for him it isn't possible to have a dark side. I am his dark side >:D0
We all have a dark side, yeah.
Cruel and sadistic? No, wtf0
Yeaaaaa and I love0
