Schizophrenia is one type of psychotic disorder. Schizo Schizophrenia is a serious mental disorder in which people interpret reality abnormally. Schizophrenia may result in some combination of hallucinations, delusions, and extremely disordered thinking and behavior that impairs daily functioning, and can be disabling. Retard It was previously used as a medical term. The verb “to retard” means to delay or hold back, and so “retard” became known as a medical term in the late 19th and early 20th centuries to describe children with retarded mental development. These words were discontinued in that form when concerns arose that they had developed negative meanings. ADD ADHD stands for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, a condition with symptoms such as inattentiveness, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. ADD is a type of ADHD that doesn’t involve constant movement and fidgeting. Now it’s called ADHD, inattentive type, or ADHD, hyperactive/impulsive type, or ADHD, combined type. Narcissist Narcissistic personality disorder — one of several types of personality disorders — is a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others Hypochondriac A hypochondriac is someone who lives with the fear that they have a serious, but undiagnosed medical condition, even though diagnostic tests show there is nothing wrong with them. Nympho Nymphomania is a mental disorder marked by compulsive sexual behavior. Compulsions are unwanted actions, or rituals, that a person engages in repeatedly without getting pleasure from them or being able to control them. Penis Envy Freud also had controversial views on women. He introduced a stage of ‘penis envy’ – where a woman realizes she does not possess a penis, and experiences an envy of the male. Misogynist • Misogyny is typically an unconscious hatred that men form early in life, often as a result of a trauma involving a female figure they trusted.
