What do you define insanity as? Do you know someone insane? Are you insane? I might be.

Insanity to me is doing the same thing over and over again whilst expecting different results.

Ah, another one of Phersu's topics.
I wonder how this one turns out...?


I think insanity is when what little reason a person has is crushed into minuscule pieces,
and any thought of any person, thing, or existence is overruled by pure lust and desire.

In other words, being stuck in traffic.

"Insanity is hereditary, you get it from your kids." - from some person I can't remember who.
I remember seeing this quote somewhere, but I can't recall who said it. I do love the quote though and get a good laugh out of it.

(This statement is not meant to be serious, only meant for mild humor and possible attempting satire. Take this with a grain of salt as you will.)



Insanity to me is when you begin to lose grasp of logic, and control of your normal functions on this dreary orb. Not to be confused with zeal, or one bursting with insurmountable rage from bottled emotions; their created world becomes law, unable to properly maintain the status quo with the rest of society without outside intervention, which may or may not be possible.

I don't know of anyone who's insane nor am I insane. Am I zealous? Yes. Am I ignorant? Yep. But am I insane? Not at this time. I keep trying, though.

Insane people tend not to be aware of it, or at the very least, it's not something they brag about.

Insanity isn't something you disclose to others on forums to explain why you may not be the best socially functioning person out there. As I often see it used on the internet. It's an extremely distressing mental state to be in. Crazy people don't know that their way of thinking isn't right, and in cases such as psychopathy or sociopathy, they genuinely could not care less.

Heck my best friend is a heavily diagnosed Bipolar Schizophrenic. I still wouldn't consider her insane, as she truly does have a grasp on reality. Her mind and body often play cruel tricks on her, but she isn't gone.

Insanity, if linked to a proper psychological definition, would probably fit closest with psychosis, which encompasses many diseases that "severely" impair function. Some marked examples are Delusional Disorder, Shared Psychotic Disorder, and schizophrenia (DSM). Symptom wise, one could say that it is marked by many conditions, though those may not singly be used to define someone as psychotic/insane. Some common symptoms are social withdrawal., delusions, hallucinations, and worsening hygiene. Personally, I fit with the list of psychotic S/S, but I also fit with the symptoms of Asperger's Syndrome with 6/7 of the hallmarks .

A mix of exhaustion and lack of understanding.

I suppose I should congratulate you on your ascent to severing your ties with your mortal shell then. Now you can defy physics without resulting in petty weakness such as pain. Carry on.

I agree with your definition of insanity. I do agree that insanity is indeed doing the same thing over and over and EXPECTING different results. You should learn from your mistakes, so that you don't end up repeating them again.
