I believe Essay

People always seem to surprise me in the most unusual way’s. I think the

reason why I enjoy talking to people so much and interacting with people so

much is to see what they’re next step is going to be to be 100% honest…With a

person, you never truly “know” what they are going to do next. I believe that

people are always going to be full of surprises, whether it be good or bad which

is what makes interacting always so, amusing, I guess you could say.

There is no set emotion or action that people are programmed to do,

people might be persuaded or corrupted into thinking a certain way but they can

always change which is what makes people so intriguing. I remember when I

was talking to my step-dad one night when I was about 9 or 10, I remember him

talking about how angry he was because he recently had broken his leg and he

rambled on and on about the negative things that would possibly occur because

of his recent upset however a minute later he began to laugh, out of nowhere

and started talking about the positive things. The point of this example is to show

just how versatile people can really be, my step-dad was really set on a

pessimistic moment at that time and in a instant he changed. My example might

not be the best example but its an example none the less that just shows people

are always full of surprises and that you never “truly” know what a persons next

step is going to be.

In conclusion to my belief that all people are always un-predictable and

that there is no set emotion, its how people change instantly that truly amazes

me whether or not it was for the better or the worse it still amazes me because

you can never plan out a human’s actual steps or predict accurately what they

are going to do.
