  • psychology



    shin woo, You did an excellent job of framing the problem, presenting to someone with relatively little knowledge about the extents of the problem (me) with just the right amount of information to make me really curious about what you have in mind to work on for your thesis project. I think this is a fascinating problem, and I think that you almost have to think very psychologically. As you say, the experience of losing a child in this way is extremely traumatic, and the people that do it must also be in some pretty strange psychological condition...Did you read about this guy who implied that he was a Rockefeller, and he kidnapped his child and then it turned out he isn't a Rockefeller and he's wanted for murder...

    I wonder how getting into the heads of people who are going through something like this could be useful in developing a product to prevent it or at least help find kids when they get taken.

    What's next, Shin woo? the ball is in your court.
