Just in time for Halloween, Michael Stevens Sets Out
to Find What We Fear in His Mind Field Special
What Is the Scariest Thing?
Is it heights, needles, sharks, or something else entirely? What elicits fear and panic in everyone, regardless of age, gender or background? What is the scariest thing?
In a very special in-depth episode of YouTube’s Mind Field from Vsauce, Michael Stevens asks where fear comes from and uncovers why fear is such a fundamental and important part of being human. He also asks why … do we sometimes even enjoy it?
By talking with experts in the field, analyzing horror film tropes, and conducting scientific demonstrations on how fears can be created, Michael will take viewers on a rollercoaster of terror to understand a core psychological principle that all humans share.
