Hi Everyone, I want to write something, but I don't know in what format I should write it. I have some ideas that I want to express. I don't have any evidence to prove them; but they somehow make sense. Can you please tell me what kind of writing would it be, so that I'd know what format I should use?

    Is this just for your own personal consumption?

    No, it's a universal view on human nature.

    What I meant was who is your audience? and what is your purpose? You must know these things before you can decide on a format or anything else.

    My audience are common people (general mind) and my purpose is to explain human nature and behavior.

    For publication or a class?

    I would go with a formal academic format. APA format would be appropriate considering the content, but MLA would be acceptable too.

    Your publisher might have a specific format that they want you to use though so check with them first before you write the whole thing and then have to re-write it in the format they want.
