Belief In Free Will Correlated With Lower Levels of Shame & Guilt
Strong feelings of guilt and shame are correlated with a lack of belief in free will. Why is that?

You enter a forest. Who’s forest? Why are you here? As you walk through the narrow paths and try not to stumble over the vines, you realize there’s something eerily familiar about this place. You’ve been here before. Many times. And then it hits you. The realization. You’re inside your own mindscape. This is how it looks inside your own head.

But you’ve never seen it like this before. Never been a simple wanderer passing through, trying to find the way. In the past, you were always the individual thoughts, the trees, always a different one, never more than a few at a time. You recognize many of these trees.

Some trees are your worries and concerns and fears. Some are frustrations and things that upset you. Some are shame, and regret. Things you wish had gone differently. Here’s both the past and the future, at least, what you think could, or might happen. But looking at this forest, you are hit by a wave of perspective. You are all of these things, not any individual thought, but all thoughts, at the same time. You’re both joys and sorrows, dreams and fears. All those inner conflicts were just you all along, thinking, with yourself.

My name is Erik Thor, and I’m a Jungian analyst specializing in personality psychology and positive psychology. I created this channel to do storytelling about personality psychology and personal growth.
