Fear of "Sea Creatures"

Shark attacks are very uncommon, and rarley do humans actually incounter sharks in the wild. Eventhough there are not many incounters does not mean that there are no sharks attacks; adveraging 50-70 shark attacks/year (worlwid). Aparently, pedestiains have a better chance of getting struck by lighting then actually incountering this live beast in the ocean. So why do we fear swimming far out at the beach?

Whale war's is a dramatic television series on the discovery chanelle that begian my interest in captive marine life. As we think about our goals, morals, and ethic's; I thought it would be intersting to post about something personal to me. I may love to surf, swim, and row in the ocean ,but I am always on the look out for a shark attack.

Motivational psychology is a awe-inspiring study of mind and soul. Professor's around the globe are excited about our ability to impell and compress our thoughts into creativness. I'd like to thank everybody who posted this semester. Happy Holidays!


  1. Yes, you are right. Many people believe that getting attacked by shark is more probable than it actually is.

  2. I think that a lot of people are afraid of sea cretures because a lot of the time, unless you are in tropical waters, you cannot see what is below or around you. Because of this, there is a possibility that something could come get you. One time my Dad and I were floating on rafts in Aruba right off the resorts beach. Some large sea thing started bumping the bottom of my raft and my Dad said it was "just the waves" and to relax. Well, when the thing started bumping his raft a a minute later it was not "just the waves" any longer. We both kept our entire bodies on the float and paddles like hell back to the beach. Although it was not funny at the time, we laugh about it now.
