Having lurking suspicions about your psychological condition? A vagrant on the street; a fictional character's? Here is the thread to discuss personality disorders, mood disorders, the autism spectrum, and everything else. Hehe. Enjoy.

I love psychology too. I spend 90% of my time on the Internet reading articles about how bipolar disorder and depression has direct correlations to creativity and why manipulators manipulate and searching symptoms of borderline personality disorder. It's just so interesting. Plus the nagging, slight suspicion that 'this' or 'that' may just be you in some terrific circumstance. I mostly try to diagnose my characters or the people around me, but they all mostly suffer from ambiguous disorder.
Antisocial? Isn't that similar to psychopathy/sociopathy, but not exactly the same?

I really want to study psychology in college, though I wouldn't be a very good therapist. xD

I probably am heading towards severe narcissism. I'm going to try to be more humble this year, but it's going to be difficult around my half-witted classmates.

I'm a hypochondriac.

I was set on becoming a therapist, until I realized I would have to listen to other peoples' problems.

I've considered that idea briefly, but I would much rather apply my studies to writing and special individuals, not any other person as a therapist would.

*walks into thread*
Ask an unofficially-diagnosed hereditary schizotypal personality person anything!
*sits down*

*by the way, I love psychological disorders too. My favourite has gotta be psychosis, though. ... Did I really just type that? O_o*

I feel like this would be a popular thread on a site for writers.
