That depends on what you mean by 'what they want'. Many people are not entirely selfish if that is what you are asking.
Bottom line in all of this, are people the real reasons for their own actions?
Again, how do you define 'people'? I know for a fact that certain medications affect my behaviour. Now clearly the medication affects my brain, and my brain is the reason for my action, but ultimately the medication can be said to be part of the reason too.
It gets more complicated when we talk about lack of medication. If someone is 'normal' when on medication, then doesn't take his/her medication, then is the person the real reason for their actions, or is the lack of medication the real reason?
