The all disorders and transverse thread

Postby HSS » Mon Jul 06, 2020 10:12 am

I think that psychology is too much box divided; it's pragmatic, but sometimes it becomes artificial. We all are human beings and what looks like different could come from a common root or could be somehow similar.

So, this thread is for topics about:

- general psychology - including info and opinions about psychological books and essays, reviews,...

- pacific discussions to find analogies between different personalities, or to compare them and to learn each other

- transverse problematics touching different sub-forums (methods to increase self-knowledge, professional problems, social strategies, nocturnal dreams, and so on). This third one is perhaps less useful as this sub-forum seems conform to this need, but I don't understand very well then I write it too.

Transverse topic no. 1 - OTHERS' RIGHT DIMENSION

I thought about it after reading a post about “Alice in Wonderland syndrome” on the schizoid sub-forum. If you have this syndrome, you see the world around bigger or smaller than it is.
In its strictest conception, it's a psychotic mechanism. I know that it happens a lot to people suffering schizophrenia.

But if we consider it in its largest meaning, it could involve many personalities.

I guess that Cluster B personalities decrease others' real dimensions, in their mental representation.
It could be that there is an initial diminution in narcissism (narcissists communicate with others, even emotionally, but they feel that they are “higher” than others), and this gradually increases until the most severe psychopathy, where others are so small that they become invisible, or similar to ants, and the same wish to communicate stops.

Schizoids seem to ignore social life, I am not sure how they perceive others' dimension.

Those who are someone else's addicted, and maybe those suffering anxiety or depression, could increase others' mental representation.

So, what are your experiences?

This is the original thread - "copyright" by KvoTheRaven:

schizotypal-personality/topic204724.html

This is a review about the syndrome, in its pathological aspect:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4909520/

As I read that time can be distorted too, I wonder if someone noticed a constant relationship in spacial and temporal misperception.

Transverse topic no. 1 - OTHERS' RIGHT DIMENSION

A very, very interesting essay about topic no. 1:

Where am I? Who am I? The Relation Between Spatial Cognition, Social Cognition and Individual Differences in the Built Environment, by Michael J. Proulx and others.
Here -> https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4749931/

I find it absolutely well-written and very interesting; maybe I will deepen some passage from it, about narcissism, in the specific sub-forum, but I wished to share the whole essay here.
