Children are afraid of ghosts, because in childrens cognition, ghosts are harmful to people, and even personified ghosts. So we can understand that childhood fear of ghosts is just a simple fear of insecurity. Its unreasonable to be afraid of ghosts in adulthood, but its understandable. Maybe it means more ghosts for adults. One of the possible reasons may be that childhood fear was too deep. He may have experienced many or impressive haunted events when he was a child, such as often staying alone, closing a dark room, being intimidated by strange people like ghosts, and being frightened by corpses. For young children, it is an extremely uncomfortable adventure. People always want to grow up, but this deep sense of fear, like a coward, accompanies the adults heart, when meeting some similar haunted events or environment, the kid on the body begins to feel uneasy. In fact, the kid in the adults mind is not only frightened by the risk of illusion, but also intimidating the adult himself.
The second possibility is the reason of neuroticism. We are convinced that adults have a rational sense of risk and have a more rational judgment of events such as ghosts. So for adults who are afraid of ghosts, we can only say that their perception of risk is still in their infancy, and they tend to take the uneasy feeling (illusion) as reality. This further shows that there are some characteristics in their personality, such as easy tension, over sensitivity, paranoia, high anxiety and so on, which are all uneasy selves. These selves, like a timid imp, are always active in their hearts, and their habitual negative psychology indicates to adults, you should be more careful with danger! Not afraid of ten thousand, just in case. . The formation of neuroticism is not necessarily due to the fear of being haunted, but it must have been a very unsafe early relationship environment. Every adult of us has a child who represents fear - cowards, but there are more of them in sensitive and vulnerable adults.
