Personality & Behavior

Personality and behavior are very popular topics both in scientific and general discussions. Even if it is a subjective matter, studies can find out, for example, what are the most common fears or preferences among the population. For instance, global research reveals that we find poverty and social inequality, unemployment, crime and violence, corruption, healthcare, and education to be the topics we worry about most. The issue of fighting inequalities has been the subject of many surveys. Worldwide, people believe that more female presence in government and politics as well as equal access to education will help to end gender-related disparities.

A conspiracy theory arises from the belief that certain events are the results of actions of powerful or influential groups kept hidden from the public eye. Among the most famous conspiracy theories, we find those on moon landing, vaccination, aliens in Area 51, 9/11, climate change, and so on. Indeed, about a quarter of Americans believe that global warming was not happening in the United States.

Human rights are rights that belong to every single individual on earth regardless of nationality, ethnicity, gender, language, etc. This includes the right to life, the freedom from torture, the right to education, freedom of speech, and many more. However, these ideals do not reflect the actual status of people living worldwide. Among others, this happens because the understanding of human rights is not the same from country to country, or even from person to person.
