Nosy People — 6 Comments

  1. Hahaha! POWER HUNGRY!!! I would say that that person is so insecure that she will use all the means to control others. If she wants to be in charge, she should earn it and get a higher education.

  2. I think that’s the same reason for the reality show fascination these days. I don’t understand why people like to waste their time watching other people who are either: too wealthy with nothing to do, or like to fight and be as horrible a person as possible. The worse the behavior, the more popular the show. I think people do like to watch and think, “well, at least I’m not like him or her.” Here’s a question for you: why do so many people base their behavior on who they are not, instead of who they want to be, like it used to be?

    • You make a good and interesting point, Cristin. Those reality TV shows do seem to encourage people being nosy through watching other people make spectacles of themselves. In my opinion, if we must have reality shows, it would be nice to have shows in which people who have extraordinary talents and gifts are displayed, like a present-day Mozart or Einstein. I suppose, though, that would be too boring for a society that champions the mediocre and notorious. As for your question, that sounds like a “why” to be explored in a future post–thanks for bringing it up! 🙂

  4. Nosy neighbors and coworkers want to collect gossip, which makes them feel important when they spread it. It’s funny how the gossips and nosy people always have the worst gossip in their lives if someone else where to spread it.
