Definitions of evil vary, as does the analysis of its motives. Evil can be:
Personal immoral actions or thoughts (though it is not common to relate the word evil to transient thought, rather it is a malignant intent to harm)
Impersonal natural evil (as in the case of natural disasters or illnesses)
A persona of demonic or supernatural/eternal power (See Also: Devil)
Elements that are commonly associated with personal forms of evil involve unbalanced behavior involving anger, revenge, fear, hatred, psychological trauma, expediency, selfishness, ignorance, or neglect.
