When I was a child I used to believe that I could make things fly using the power of my mind, so everyday for few weeks I used to train myself looking at an object in my room with very concentrated state, hoping I would lift it

Since I have dark skin, and poop is obviously brown, I thought that light skinned people had light colored poop. For some reason, I just couldn't imagine light skinned people having poop that wasn't their color. I also thought that cats and dogs were exempt to my theory, meaning they all had brown poop no matter what color they were.

When I was a little girl, I used to believe I could die because of a cream. My dad had told me so because I had to put cream on my feet and I wanted to put this cream in my mouth.
Growing up I realized it was a flammable cream

Here's a belief that went way beyond childhood - my grandpa once mentioned to me how odd and unrealistic he finds it when fictional characters dream, since in real life dreams are only memories. Surprised, I informed him that most people's dreams aren't memories at all. He's spent his whole life dreaming only about things that had really happened to him and lived more than 70 years not realizing it wasn't that way for everyone else.

I thought the psychic powers were real and we all possessed some degree of it and just didn't know how to control it. I thought you could teach yourself to control it and eventually you could be a master at reading minds and moving things with just your thoughts. I practiced all the time!
