Many of you will agree with me that our brain is one of the best gifts given by God to us. But then it is the same brain that makes us do weird and strange things also… still many shades of our personality remain a mystery to science and its practical theses.

These traits so far have been mostly found in the serial killers and the pattern of killing adopted by them. Go ahead and read some shocking stories that will make you wonder how deadly can our brain become.

Read what he said to the media – “When I killed people I had a desire. This inspired me to kill more. I don’t care whether they deserve to live or not.

Well, my intention was not to scare you but to make you understand that how human brain has started to lose its morals and values. If the above example mentions extreme case scenarios, there are many small examples we can see around us in our daily lives. Giving bribe, cheating, turning violent on pity issues, arguing for no reason, and more examples are sign of mental instability which if not rectified now, many lead to disastrous results later on. Think twice before you speak and 4 times before you act.
Happy living cya.
