I observed two basics of human characteristics which guide them to behave.

One is Desire and,
Another one is Fear.


What do you think?

You forget selfishness, that's the major one. Self preservation rocks.

Desire is because of craving. Fear is in losing what is desired. Most of us must live with both.

I guess, selfishness comes from Desire.

Then of course that is not fear.
