  • Yes i do. I don't know if other people do. I guess it depends in what way.
  • There are probably some things that don't ever change like basic values and likes and dislikes but I know I have changed drastically in my life and I am still changing certain things.
  • yes. people can change. my old step father (no names mentioned) used to be nice b4 him and my mom were dating... then he used to beat me. 10 years later, when i felt strong enough, i just hit him in the stomach. he fell to the floor even tho he was drunk. he hasnt drank since my mother sister and i moved out. and he has had a lot of respect toward me.
  • yes i changed
  • I do believe that people can change. It's diffucult to change our own basic personalities, but we can become a much better person if we have a stronge and sincere desire.Just like when people fall in love, we're likely to think that we want to be a more reliable or considerate person for him or her. I'd like to say that people're changing in that situation.
  • i belive you can change ur actions but deep inside ur still the same person
  • i belive you can change ur actions but deep inside ur still the same person
  • Because of a certain human process called adolesence, yes
  • Almost anything and everything about a person can change. All we need for positive change is an open mind and the willingness to listen to and observe others, and (hopefully) to learn something constructive, but if we do this we'll learn almost by default. Negative, harmful changes occur if we shut ourselves away with only ourselves to talk to.
  • Yes I do, but they need to respond to an outside stimulus. Not many will do so, as most people are of the opinion that they are right and their lifestyle is working fine. Good examples of this are people like those who go to AA. An outside stimulus (eg a wife, a child, a loss of job etc) has caused them to respond and has led to change. But, we all know how many alcoholics and other addicts shrug off all attempts to help them.
  • Oh hell yeah, about as often as they change their underwear.
  • always, my mom who seemed so set in her ways took up yoga stopped smoking and became so laid back that even i couldn't believe it. the key is, you can't make anyone change they have to do it themselves... you can support it or not but it comes from inside. or at least thats what i think.
  • I do believe! Second chance can be effective with many people. For example me.. When I was a kid, I used to be hmm let's use this word WILD. I made so many terrible things,lied, schemed, hurt(physically) innocent people, my mother told me that I will always be like this! But guess what? I changed! Now I'm different person.. :) So, yeah, everything is possible if you believe in yourself. :)
  • Hebrews 4:12 states that the word of God is alive and exerts power. This let's us know that God has the power to change those who genuinely seek His guidance. There is more practical information on the website jw.org.
  • yes sure every body can change if he wants and does his best. it depends on how much he or she is serious .
  • Maybe, but the question is, do we want them to?
  • People can change if they really want to, but it takes time and effort. Most people don't want to make the commitment.
  • No I don't think people can change in a positive way. Maybe its because I am depressed I think that way.
  • Yes they absolutely can change but it is extremely unlikely. If you decide not to be around someone because of unacceptable behavior (for any reason) and they promise to change to be acceptable to you there is almost no chance that will happen over the long run. Change is extremely difficult and is sometimes contarary to one personality traits which also, virtually never change.
  • Yes I think it is possible but just don't expect that someone will change.
  • there is nothing in life more constant than change. so yes people can, with the right motivation or the wrong motivation someone can change. although forcing this change is dangerous. waiting for someone to change is the hardest aspect of this, they have to want to change, yet if you try to change them, they may resent that.
  • 2-13-2017 Of course they can. That's what schools are for. American public schools are not very good at it, but that's what they are for.
  • I used to believe that people are always generally good. And that bad circumstances had only made them react to the world differently. But I have later on realized that this is not the case. People are bad because they choose to be bad. Until it became who they are. So no, I don't actually believe that they can change. Because they've been given that chance so many times and yet they chose to be who they are.
  • People can change but only if there is a true reason for doing so. It has to be a determined effort otherwise it will fail. Some refuse to change because they are happy with their lives.
  • Constantly. The shell of a person only appears to be somewhat constant.
  • Yes, I recently realized something about myself I don't like and I have already started changing it. So far so good.
  • Why not?
  • Change is the most constant thing in the Universe, everything changes. People do too, even though you may not have control of how they change, it happens. (forcing someone to change is always tricky, they may be just what you wanted, but isn't that selfish?) or they could take a path you didnt expect. Anyway, yes people can change, and the best way for positive change is by positive support, a basic understanding of their goals and ambitions will be a precursor to who they may become.
  • Yes, I for sure do!
  • By forgetting "your"past comparisons of them in your memory!
  • Yes, if they really want to
