Is it normal that i think other people can hear my thoughts?

When I'm in a public place, and thinking about something inappropriate, or dirty, I feel like people are staring at me. They seem to know what I am thinking, and it scares me. I don't think they really know what I am thinking, but sometimes it's like they are reading my thoughts.

Is It Normal?

  • Hahaha it's actually more normal than these people would have you believe. I use to feel that way in high school all the time, actually, though I knew it was impossible and I knew it wasn't true, I would often find myself thinking of a song or situation that my fellow classmates would shun, and quickly change my thinking so that they couldn't hear it.

    It's not so much that you fear that they can hear what you're thinking, it's the fear that the look on your face and the "vibe" or energy you give off may tip them off and they may guess. That, mixed with perhaps the guilt of thinking those things in the first place, gives you the feeling of being watched and judged, which can lead to the feeling of being listened to even though you aren't talking.

    It's strange, but it's normal in the sense that a lot of people feel like that at least once in their lives.

  • There is technology being developed that can transmit thoughts into images. The air alone is insufficient for this task.

  • I think the point here is not the actuality that the OP is having their thoughts read, but that the OP *thinks* they are.

  • the fact is that no one can hear your thoughts. its just impossible. they are not staring at you. they don't know you so they have no reason to stare at you other and just glance as they are walking by for no reason. dont worry about them.

    you might have a form a schizophrenia. if it worsens talk to your psychiatrist.

    • You got to wear that goddamn tinfoil hat with the grounding strap attached to the cold-water faucet like I told you. Or else the Mother Ship can't contact you via headtelephony.

  • You know that "FEELING" you get from your little child when he did something wrong. Its similar to what happens when everyone looks at you. You give of a certain vibe

  • Its like saying everyone is telepathic.but most people dont even know of telepathy when its just your imagination. If you really studied how the brain works and the chemistry of the brain and the subconscious mind you would know where your problem lies.
    Go to a phsyciatrist.
    Take it easy be positive and dont worry about those around you after all Its your life. Just keep in mind the kind of a person you would be after all this is over.

  • The first thing when dealing with a situation is you have to be very very fragile with what you tell the person because you are dealing with the belief system which is thee most powerful system in the human body. So dont "BELIEVE" that people can hear your thoughts because its basially impossible

  • I think people can hear my thoughts all the time! In fact sometimes I think that there is a little tv that appears on the back of my head and every one can see what I'm thinking so I have to wear hats! I would say it's normal!

  • Not normal at all...

    If have something appropriate and normal in mind, do u have the feeling of people knows what u are thinking? I bet no.

  • Yes, it's normal to think that, but also realize that they can't. I always wonder what expression is on my face when I'm thinking of something inappropriate and I wonder if people know if I'm thinking something inappropriate.

  • I understand how you feel... I used to feel the same way. It could be caused by many things like anxiety, paranoia, etc. People have the same problem, but maybe you should get some professional advice about it to see if there's something they can do to help.

  • Well Obviously, they cannot hear your thoughts. When you think of something dirty, or innapropriate, they aren't staring. And if they are, It might be because you have a "panic" facial expression and they are wondering what is going on. People also just tend to generally stare at people around them. Don't worry about people hearing your thoughts, they are concealed to you and only you.
