No, I think you can feel guilt when everyone knows.

Very true. Or you can feel no guilt even though no one knows.

Yeah you can feel guilt whether or not anyone knows or everyone does, same goes for shame.

No. I mean, personally, I don't feel guilt if someone finds out about something I've done...nor do I feel guilty keeping it bottled up.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 12/14/06 - 3:02:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
Personally, i'd feel more guilty if only i knew what i'd done.

Depends what you've done I suppose :P
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 12/14/06 - 4:51:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I agree with that statement.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 12/15/06 - 10:43:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I find that to be true.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 12/16/06 - 12:28:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
So very true!
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 12/16/06 - 12:29:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, I agree.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 3/16/07 - 11:28:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. I've had times where I did something dumb involving others and others pointed out my folly and I felt guilty only after that.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 3/16/07 - 11:29:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I do but I think the guilt stays with you even if everybody around you knows.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 3/17/07 - 12:14:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
The point is that technically, the feeling of shame is the feeling of having transgressed a public norm, and therefore exposing yourself to critcism/condemnation. The feeling of guilt is the feeling of knowing you have transgressed a personal value. Or something like that. It doesnt agree completely with ordinary usage of the words.

Nah, I get different feelings but I'm not sure which is which.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 4/16/07 - 4:36:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
Pretty accurate.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 4/23/07 - 9:40:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Am I the only one who doesn't experience guilt? I just stopped feeling guity whenever I did anything "wrong" or "bad".
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 9/27/07 - 8:44:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
I agree. However, I still feel guilty for my deeds when others find out.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 11/25/07 - 2:45:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've felt ashamed of myself doing things that no one else knows about.
