(Covert page)Evil Everyone?Evil personality refers to someone acting morally wrong, bad, or someone immoral. This person is marked by anger, irritability, or irascibility (the free dictionary). Fortunately, not everyone shows at first this trait of character. But, according to religion and some philosophes as Hobbes, there is evil in everyone. Moreover, history examples have shown how humans can act violently and almost as an animal. But, does violence mean evil? One thing that everyone agrees is that not everyone looks to be evil. Therefore, if evil is in everyone that means that is can be either hidden or unveiled by the intermediate of a second personality. This double personality is source of many disorders which are important in the understanding of how can evil be in everyone. Otherwise, people leave in society with rules that they have to follow.
