25 facts to Observe Human Behaviour

People are complex creatures. There is no one behaviour that fits all. In fact, the behaviour of a person can change drastically depending on the situation. This is why it is so important to pay attention to the facts when observing human behaviour.

For example, let’s take a look at the fact that people are often influenced by their emotions. This means that the way a person behaves can change depending on what is going on inside of them. For example, if a person is angry, they might become more aggressive.

Likewise, if a person is feeling happy, they might become more cheerful. This is because emotions are powerful forces.
