"Why Trolls Are Trolls"
a study by valkyrie1119

I have done a simple study and analysis of the brain of a troll. I have discovered the source of their trollish behavior, and would like to share it with the rest of you.

Now, take a look at a picture of the average human brain.

As you can see, there has been severe damage along the outer areas of the brain. This damage has resulted in a psychosis I call "Trolishness," an over stimulation of the cerebral cortex causing the brain to be overwhelmed with messages from the nervous system. This psychosis has also been known to cause fugues of amnesia, where the troll forgets who he is and what he is doing, resulting in more aggressive trollish behavior. Considering the symptoms of trollishness are quite clearly expressed in their behavior, it seems they have no control over it.

With that, there are several procedures you can follow to make the troll a negligible variable:

Ignore the troll. This has been proven to be the best technique since the over stimulation and the psychosis require an unending diet of attention, and have grown to have it become a vital need in order to survive.

Report the troll without attracting its attention. A quiet conference with a moderator or a simply click of the flag button shall suffice.

Try to think like the troll. Because the Trolishness has complete dominance over the troll's behavior and though process, understand that the troll is in a difficult position in terms of mental status. Understanding the difficult mental process the troll is undergoing can result in both sympathy and empathy for the troll.

This concludes my study.

Please comment. I intend to extend and update my study as soon as I can do more research and collect more data. I'm still trying to discover what causes the psychosis in terms of the necessary damage.

Hooray for repeating things already said!

I suppose this could be helpful if you're new and all.

Yes. I intended to create an anti troll tip section and a scientific insight as to the behavior of trolls.

Well I was just sort of trying to have fun with whatever reason trolls troll. Of course they troll for fun, but I thought it would be funny to make a satirical pseudo study explaining how trolls have damaged brains and a non existing psychosis.

It was funny, especially with the brain. x]

Yeah but I wanted to make a separate thread, with good advice and a possible theory for their trollish behavior.
