From The Book of Questions

What is the worst psychological torture you can imagine suffering?

Anything causing even minor physical injury should not be considered.

Not sure if this is what you are asking about, but as a parent of three, this is easy. Fear of something that might harm one of your children is the most hellish experience. My daughter is a great kid, good student and very reliable, but there was one night when she snuck out to meet someone and didn't come back until morning. We were sure that someone had abducted her. That four or five hours of worrying was about as bad as anything I've ever experienced.

This question is probably asking about torture inflicted on purpose like the verbal abuse inflected on an employee by a manager who wants the worker to quit.

Unwanted sexual advances - although I've never been sexually harrassed or molested, I would think that could be one of the worst experiences of psychological torture, too.

Despite being moderately liberal, I do favor castration for pedoohiles even though I know it doesn't work. I just want them hurt as badly as the harm they cause. Whoops, that is beyond the scope of the question because it involves physical injury. Sorry!

Being forced to choose which one of my loved ones dies.

Barring anything physical I would think that, for those who have them, losing a loved one would be the worst. For those who don't have loved ones the worst torture would be the loneliness.

i don't know if this is the worst, but having your significant other leave you whilest you are still in love with them.

knowing they are somewhere else, with someone else, torture...

The last woman I fell in love with ended the relationship by having sex with another man in the next room. I went to sleep that night and woke up the next morning to the sounds of them together. I would've greatly preferred it for them to have been somewhere else.

Not having access to a cup of Tea - too stereo typical for an Englishman, but there you go.

On a serious note, the worst forms of psychological torture are related to bulling and love. Being bullied and the meer threat of inflicted pain can be worse than the physical side.

I symphasise (spelling?) with the previous comment where deliberate pain has been delivered in a brutal way by tugging on the heart strings.

For me, the worst sort is having a crisis (such as a loved one in hospital) and not knowing what is going on or being able to do anything about it. I often cannot do anything else but dose and wait for another member of the family to call.

The worst psychological torture I ever suffered was when my grandfather died, who was my favorite person in the entire world. Till this day I feel as though there is a hole in my heart that can never be filled by anyone else but him, and it's hard for me to visit my grandmother without trying to hear his laughter ringing off of the walls. I never imagined life without him, and even now I don't think life will ever be as wonderful. Losing the person who means the most to you to death is something I cannot even begin to describe, it's agony beyond anything else.

The worst would be for something happening to my kids. As they say - you can do anything you want with me but don't hurt my kids

I agree with everyone about death, loved ones and lovers. Beyond an answer that involves my relationship with someone else, I would say this: knowing that I'm not going to make an important deadline that I have to make. This is a tough one for any workaholic, I think. I also hate it when my dogs whine just within my audible range.

On a lighter note,,,
Seeing nude pictures of and/or by the Good Wife and having all my appendages tied down would be unimaginable torture. There might be some minor physical injury to the middle appendage. ;-)

I always have this sort of "flash-backs"... towards the future... you might call them visions, but they occur like some sort of pop-ups...

I always 'foresee' (yes, that's kind of the word)... how about fore-flash-see???

Well, to hell with it...

I'm always puzzled by a question: What prevents me of doing THAT?Sometimes I get some visions... scary visions, of the BAD things I could be able to do. I sometimes see myself hitting a friend with a blunt object... or foresee a dead girl after an accident...

And after I get those visions... I carefully try not to kill that other person... They scare me... the visions I mean... I think I'm always afraid of hurting other people...

Well, I think I've never hurt or killed anyone... as far as I can remember...

But I'm generally scared by the possibility of hurting loved ones or friends.

Hey, Rolando – Don’t worry. Sometimes I see my worst fears in my dreams, but they have never come true. I think you’re seeing your worst fears in these vivid daydreams or yours. It could be an outlet for some anger, but there are MANY things preventing you from really doing anything like that. Your flashforwards are a healthier outlet than acting out your anger if that's what it is... My mind often drifts off to thoughts of having sex with women I see in everyday life, but it’s not going to happen, either. But it can be a sweet way to pass time!

Thanks Alex... you're right...

I must switch from "psycho time" to "boner time" ... lol!

And, yep, i guess i'm just daydreaming about my worst fears... I hope I don't turn into tweak ...
