a diagnosis for every possible profile, to label any annoying person crazy
::The tape on your mouth::
Diagnosis matching elements of people who offend authority or question, exaggerated labeling
declining of the reputation of critical thinkers,
critical thinkers are nowadays crazy, called psychopaths or narcissists
(form of schizophrenia without the actual psychotic symptoms that are used for diagnosis)
used for making people shut up who think to much ahead, or for political reasons. I don't deny the actual described illness does exist, but the function is questionable.
For example, The sovjet-union used it during the cold war, to indoctrinate sane political opposers etc. Most of them were drugged while told they were insane, all due their was no clinical evidence of any mental illness, they were drugged with Haloperidol.
Personality Disorders, linkable to psychosis,druggable, also narccissism and psychopathy are being exploited for their wide interpretability and so it can match a high number of people especially those matching with someone rebelling or critisising authority.
Used for people who don't do what psychiatrists ask them to do.
still under research
when I was working on a profile that would match to recognize femme fatal, I accidentally stumbled upon a DSM4 diagnose that fits for every shrink claiming the DSM 4 is a scientific book, well in that case they can be diagnosed with:
What is the Difference Between a Pathological, a Compulsive, a Chronic, and a Habitual Liar?
A pathological liar is usually defined as someone who lies incessantly to get their way and does so with little concern for others. Pathological lying is often viewed as coping mechanism developed in early childhood and it is often associated with some other type of mental health disorder. A pathological liar is often goal-oriented (i.e., lying is focused - it is done to get one's way). Pathological liars have little regard or respect for the rights and feelings of others. A pathological liar often comes across as being manipulative, cunning and self-centered.
A compulsive liar is defined as someone who lies out of habit. Lying is their normal and reflexive way of responding to questions. Compulsive liars bend the truth about everything, large and small. For a compulsive liar, telling the truth is very awkward and uncomfortable while lying feels right. Compulsive lying is usually thought to develop in early childhood, due to being placed in an environment where lying was necessary. For the most part, compulsive liars are not overly manipulative and cunning (see, Pathological Liar), rather they simply lie out of habit - an automatic response which is hard to break and one that takes its toll on a relationship (see, how to cope with a compulsive liar).
The terms Habitual Liar and Chronic Liar are often used to refer to a Compulsive Liar.
