What types of people do Schizophrenics have delusions about?

Postby butcher01 » Sun Nov 04, 2018 1:25 am

Do schizophrenia sufferers have delusions about the same types of people? Are there common personality traits in people they foster delusions about?

For example, where do they work? Banks? Supermarkets? What age group might they be? What's their socioeconomic status? Middle to upper class? What would it take?

My opinion, is they (targets) have to be quiet, aware of other people, work with other people/with the public, have a signature or something that stands out about them- mildly, or something that is mildly irritating or suspicious. They trigger panic buttons- there's something they set off for schizophrenics.

It could just be a chip on their shoulder, mildly antagonistic attitudes, maybe even something physical or psychological that is out of place/freak-like. They could have a funny looking nose or something, show up in the same places without having an obvious reason/purpose.

Thoughts?

All of my hallucinations and delusions have been about people I care about. Very close friends, or just a classmate that I fancied and couldn't get out of my head.

It gets better everyday. Does it? It's what I need to believe.

My delusions were not about people at all, however they were mostly based around characters I had created involuntarily. In the delusional state in general, I felt as though the delusion came from deeper within my mind than a conscious choice. One of the characters was a canine if you will. It often would cause me to act out in strange fashion. For me delusion was semi hallucinatory. Although I was not fully hallucinating, I was imagining this stuff very strongly, almost without choice. So to answer your question, it was not about anyone real at all.
