  • I would be tempted, but I wouldn't read it anyway.
  • I might glance for a second and then guilt would set in and I would put it down -
  • Oh my yes...
  • No. I've had it done to me, and it was awful. I felt so exposed, naked, and violated. I could never do that to someone else.
  • depends whos if it was mine from youth somewhere suree id read it if it was my bros yeahh id read it! if i didn't know whos it was id probly take a look and if its personal keep reading too personal stop or not personal enough put it down
  • Are you kidding? You couldn't pay me to wade through someone's diary, LOL. It sounds tedious, plus I'd feel slimy about the whole thing.
  • No, not really...too much effort.
  • Depends who it was....
  • I probably would be tempted, but I'd do my best not to because I hate going through peoples stuff without their permission.
  • Oh yeah. That sounds really interesting. We all love those books and movies that are portrayed as a person's private thoughts. It would be really neat to find a person's diary and know that it wasn't fiction. Sounds silly now, but as a teenager, I always dreamed that my diary would be found someday and be published. OOOH, I just thought of a new question. Thanks!!
  • Id probably read the first page and then keel over with deafening fits of laughter.
  • Yes, but I will probably get bored after a few pages and leave it where I found it.
  • not really, i hate to read...
  • no i wouldn't, it is none of my business. A person's writing is private and we should not invade others properties.
  • Are you kidding? The near ultimate sticky-beak into someone else's life and thoughts... wouldn't hesitate.
  • yes I imagine I would, which is probably why I have never kept one.
  • Yes and I have read my brother's! nothing interesting though cause we were only kids then.
  • Well of course I'd be tempted, it's human nature to be curious. But I wouldn't, mostly because it would be rather amoral, and living with something like that on my consiounce would rip me apart.
  • i've been in the situation where i have read my friend's diary from back in middle school. i learned my lesson in the sense that i found out what she really thought about me. it's not something i plan on doing in the future. i happen to like thinking people are sincere.
  • I am here on Answer Bag to learn about people ... So yes ... I would probably have a peek, as I am so interested in knowing about other people ... and what makes their world go around?
  • no i don´t like read other people´s personal things.." treat people the way you want be treated.
  • I would be lying if I said no
  • Yes,but Just a quick look and If I see something Interesting,I'll keep reading and if I cant the owner,I would read it in my spare time.
  • yep, i'm nosey
  • I think I might. But I think I would enjoy the self-righteous smug feeling I would get if I didn’t and instead chose to respect the other person’s privacy. Besides Diaries are boring. Now Journals……. They’re much more interesting. And just in case you’re wondering what the difference is… Girls have diaries, woman have journals.
  • i might juz take a quick scan but not seriously read it..
  • Depends on who: my sister, best friend, crush... yeah. Michael Jackson... not so much.
  • Depends. If it were an historic document, you betcha -- like a journal found in the back of an antique dresser bought at a flea market. A politician's diary? You bet. A suspect in a criminal case? Sure, if it was my job (prosecutor, cop, forensic psychiatrist). A stranger's diary, even a movie star's? No, only enough to find out who they are and return it. But a family member's diary? Never. My mom did this to me 33 years ago and I will never forgive her. Never.
  • Would I be tempted? Yes. Read it? No.
  • A little tempted but I wouldn't do it morally. I believe in privacy.
  • Only if it was someone I was interested in, like someone I knew pretty well but thought was hiding something, OR if it was someone who was a totally horrible person, I would definitely be interested in their thoughts.
  • Yes i would! i think just about anyone would it's only human! we are just lazy nosy mean things!!!! i know someone named ------ she is so nice so ------ found a little book saying -----'s diary and so she piked it up and started reading it i said "------ how could you!? that is someones personal feeling and though's and your not respecting them!" ------ said "Ok i guess your right." yes she stopped but still she did it!
  • depends on who's diary i found
