When I was younger, I used to believe that my entire life was being filmed and all the people in my life were actors (like in The Truman Show). I would be in the shower or somewhere else alone and I would say, "I know you're there! I can see the cameras!" with the hope that the directors would give up. I also used to think that I was the only human on Earth and that everyone else were robots.

Of course, when you're little, it's only natural to believe that the world revolves around you. I took this to an extreme, however. I used to think that my life was a little like the Truman Show (before it existed) - everyone knew me and the people I met were only pretending not to. People were assigned to be my friends. No-one liked me. My family had to put up with me as a punishment.

On one level I knew this was ridiculous, so one day I devised a cunning plan to find out for sure. In a fight with my sister I screamed "Everyone in the world knows you and hates you and we all have meetings about you when you're asleep to talk about you!". For sure, if it wasn't true, she'd just call me stupid. "No way!" she cried, "that's what we do with you!".

Well, you all know that I know, so you can stop it now.

I think you know, don't you!

I used to believe that the world was made for me and that my parents and everyone else around me were acting from a script. So i would try and do spontainious things to try and muck up their performence like ask them where i was born and what i had for breakfast. Funny enough it just made people annoyed and then I would assume it worked.

I used to wonder if everything around me was staged and there was really really cameras everywhere and all my friends and parents and all were actors, trying ot put me in weird situations that peple who watched it all on tv would find funny. (this was before reality tv).
i was really surprised when i read about the Truman Show, and then i wondered if *they* pruposely had me find out about that movie, just so that i would start figuring out the truth, which would amuse the tv-watchers.

and then i saw Matrix...

When I was younger I used to make believe that cameras followed me around and that my life was like a movie...part of me knew that camera men werent really following me everywhere i went...but when i would walk alone it would make me feel better because i thought that in case something happened they would be there to help me...i actually did this up till high school haha

I used to think that whenever I couldn't see people they were learning their scripts.
Also, some day they would remove their masks and it was all an experiment to see how I would react if people really looked like they did, but in my head they really looked like the aliens off Toy Story.
I also thought that the movie 'The Truman Show' was just to bait me.

when i was in grade 6, probably 12 or 11, i used to think that my life was like the movie "The Truman Show" except the goverment was watching me and that the people around me (my friends and stuff) were agents who were just trying to pretend to be my friend to get info about me

When I was younger, I thought that there was a camera following me where ever I went. People would watch me all the time. The camera would also hear what I thought, so if i thought something inappropriate, I would immediately blush, because I thought people would hear it.

like some weird remix of 'The Truman Show', I used to be suspicious everyone in the world was playing a huge practical joke on me, seeing if I'd believe the world, as they pretended it, was real. Although I've stopped believing it, I've never had any convincing evidence that its not true.

I used to think that I was the only real person on earth and everyone was like in a big play to make my life seem normal.
(I still think that random people passing me are hired to do that!)

I watched The Truman Show when I was about eleven, and it permanently engraved into me a deep suspicion of surreality.
I used to totally believe there were invisible cameras everywhere I went, in corners and mirrors, and that everyone was acting around me. I did some pretty embarrassing stuff trying to catch people out!
It's still there to an extent, teasing at the back of my mind. I've never been convinced of my own privacy since.

I always, and kind of still do believe that everyone can read my mind. Like if I am thinking of something bad or dirty (dirty more or so in my later years :P) then i will try to think of something else because people will read my mind and make fun of me. And when i was 9, i formulated a idea that everybody else had the pwer to read minds but i didnt, and they showed me fake things proving it wrong so i wouldnt feel bad.

When I was a child, I used to believe that I was inside of a TV show, just like in the movie Truman Show. I used to think that people were robots programmed to be my friends or my enemies, to help me or to let me down, that they didn't have real feelings and that they just pretended to feel emotions and think.

I used to believe that other people only existed when I was around, in other words I was the only real person in the world, everyone else was around only to add background noise and situations.

I used to believe that my life was a book someone was reading or a movie that someone was watching, and even now I kind of still do.

After watching The Truman Show, a movie about a man whose life was being taped and aired on TV without him knowing it, I was convinced that everyone I knew was acting, and I was being taped and put on TV.

I believed that everyone in the world was an actor, they were there solely for the purpose of interacting with me, and the world effectively revolved around me. Of course I grew up and realised this wasn't true, but when The Truman Show came out I was disappointed because I kind of thought of the idea first.

I saw the Truman Show when I was young...changed my life. I was never really the same after I found out that I was being videotaped every second of my life. I'm still not too sure that I'm not the main character of the {insert name here} Show....*looks about furtively* But really, it scarred me for life!
