I'm wondering how normal this is? often i fantacize about violent things. for example ill be walking through the store and look at someone and think about something like beating them to death with a bat with nails sticking out of it. more often something will provoke me to think something like this, but sometimes its random. the weird thing is i dont feel the least bit disturbed by these thoughts. i actually enjoy them and will find myself laughing. it doesnt worry me either except the thought that i could actually do something like this and get caught. i think it comes from feeling so much disgust towards humans. does anyone else relate to this?

Oh only when I get angry at people. It usually involves me kneeing someone in the balls or slicing them with a powerful laser.
There are some thoughts I get and I do not enjoy. I would question why you enjoy them so much. That's not a good thing especially if they don't provoke you.

I only relate partly.

I used to frequently get thoughts about violence happening to people I cared about. Like a friend with an axe through her head. I don't mean to say that the thoughts were of me being violent, they were just thoughts of the violence existing.

For me I think it was part of OCD, the intrusive thoughts bit, and then I'd have to do something a certain number of times to get rid of the thoughts. I certainly never liked them and I'd be worried if I did.

my violent thoughts are just mundane musing concerning chopping people up into many little pieces and then scattering them to the four winds so that nobody will ever find all of 'em. but actually hurting another sentient being is a hell of a thing.

When someone has personally wronged me, or when someone does something really stupid in my presence, I often fantasize myself inflicting severe bodily injury to that person. Sometimes I start acting out the violence I am fantasizing, which causes witnesses to look at me strangely if I don't control it immediately. - LJS

YES. There are countless violent things I think about, that I wouldn't act upon.

Happens off and on quite a bit, particularly when I'm stressed out (Very prone to stress between my sleep issues and depression. I'm an introvert, so my social anxiety doesn't bother me, usually.), but also when I'm feeling more neutral. They bother me to an extent, but I realize them for what they are: intrusive thoughts. Ergo, I have very little control over their occasional presence in my mind, but I do have a choice in acknowledging that that's not me and in moving on from them. That said, though I'd never act on them, it does become harder to acknowledge how screwy such thoughts are when I'm just really frustrated than it would be when I had a clear mind. I suppose the same is true of "neurotypicals" to an extent, too, however.

Perhaps such thoughts are partly a result of seeing violence on the screen. I avoid that. The randomness is dream-like, part of a process of inner resolution of feelings.
