Disorders of thought: when the world crumbles around


thought disorder opinion about the person other people based on the observation of his behavior and speech.On this basis the judge of how this person is adequate environment.The process of thinking - is the inner world of man and the process of cognition, and thus generates thought all conscious human activity.

What is thinking, thought disorder types

Thinking - a person's ability to separate the specific images and concepts from abstract (abstract) concepts and categories, the ability not only to perceive (see, hear, feel), but also to understandwhat was going on.The basis of thinking are accumulated perceptions and ideas in the form of images and verbal symbols - they are constituents of the thinking process.

thought - a complex generalized reflection of reality with certain motifs.That is the motive causes conception (of thought), which is then converted into the internal first, and then the outer speech.This whole process has complex internal mechanisms by which it is converted into speech plan, there is the recognition and understanding of a foreign language, the emergence of his own thoughts in response to someone else's.Any violation of these complex schemes cause disturbances of the thinking process.

Thought disorders characterized by great diversity and complexity.And since thought is inextricably linked with speech, thought disorder detected by examining oral and written speech, the adequacy of implementation of some of the tests, as well as the adequacy of human behavior in various situations.

are three large groups of disorders of thinking: a violation of the operating side of thinking (the process of generalization), violation of the dynamics (logical course) thinking and violation of motivational component (focus)thinking.

Violation of the operating side thinking

Violation of the process of generalization is that the level of the process is reduced or distorted.By reducing the level of generalization in patients judgments prevail direct representations of objects and phenomena.Handling general signs replaced establishing highly specific relationship between objects.When performing the test, these patients are not able to sign all kinds of select those that are most significant and generalizing.For example, they do not understand the difference between a dog and sheep, between the table and dish.

When distorting the process of consolidating judgments reflect only the occasional side effects.When you stand the test of their particular features and properties, do not reflect the effects of any content or semantic relationships between them.Most of these are thought disorder in patients with schizophrenia, but may also occur in other diseases.

Violations of the dynamics of thinking

In patients with epilepsy, and patients with severe long-term consequences of brain injuries are identified violations of the dynamics of intellectual activities that are referred to psychiatry the term "viscosity".Patients can not change the way of his work, the course of judgment, to switch from one activity to another.These patients also found the slowness, stiffness intellectual processes.

patients with manic-depressive psychosis Manic-depressive psychosis - what phase are the most dangerous? Manic-depressive illness - which are the most dangerous phase? there is another type of violation of the dynamics of thinking - labile or unstable.It is characterized by instability of the intellectual processes.Patients can not consistently long reason, despite the fact that the level of abstraction they have not reduced.However, any idea emerged, said the association is reflected in the speech of the patient.There is a violation of the logical course of the argument in the form of jumps of ideas - the patient constantly jumps from one thought to another.

patients with schizophrenia acceleration or deceleration of thinking is often combined with a sense of navyazannosti thoughts from the outside or on the contrary, forced stop, withdrawal of thoughts.

Violation motivational component (focus) thinking

It is a violation of regulatory functions of thinking, critical, such as fragmentation of thinking (loss of communication between the various concepts, judgments, whereby it makes no sense while preserving grammatical structure), logic-chopping(empty ethereal arguments do not follow from the real facts), circumstantial speech (slowing down the transition from one thought to another, stuck on the details and the loss of the ultimate goal of the conversation).

In these disorders in patients lost an objective knowledge of phenomena, with the result that it appears their own ideas about the world in the form of obsessions, overvalued ideas and delusions of various kinds Brad - not only crazy Brad - not only crazy .

obsessive thoughts (obsessions) - it is thought that arise spontaneously and are alien to the content of consciousness at the moment, they are often combined with obsessive fears.The patient is usually aware of this painful phenomenon, but could not overcome it.

Overvalued ideas - a belief that arose as a result of real-life circumstances, but for a patient with inadequate important.Overvalued ideas are usually fully capture patient.There are often overvalued ideas jealousy Jealousy and what to do with it Jealousy and what to do with it , the struggle for justice.

Brad - is false reasoning and judgment, do not comply with reality.Delirium occurs in a variety of mental illnesses Mental illness - ashamed to ask for help? Mental illness - ashamed to ask for help? and the patient does not feel his pain, that is not a criticism to his condition.

Normally, thinking always precedes action - it gives the action meaning and purpose.
