Note on Self-Diagnosis


The habit of waiting from other persons diagnostics for our psychological disorders might make someone who is fully aware of his sickness to imagine his consciousness as a kind of a judge of his state.

In this way, the consciousness would be merely illusory out of the disorder it recognizes. At the same time, it is placed at a long distance from that disorder, so that its closeness to the sickness becomes inefficient.

The result is a continual delay in acting against the psychological disorder. It is simply named, being a matter of proud to call it with a fairly scientific name or to describe it with insightful details.

Moreover, the achievements in amateur diagnoses gradually develop the belief that the observed disorder is in fact a source of improvement for our personality.
