Paranoid delusions are built and can sometimes be convincing. Apart from the themes on which he deliriums, the paranoid can make quite coherent remarks. But the delirious symptoms are of the register of psychoses. That is, the individual loses contact with reality and is not aware of having a mental disorder. The great risk of these delusions is then the passage to the act on the person targeted by delirium.
There are three types of paranoid delusions. Here are the symptoms:
1 - Passionate delusions
They are centered around a basic idea that is wrong. Apart from the theme on which he deliriums, the paranoiac can make quite coherent remarks.
There are three types of passionate delusions, the symptoms of which are:
> Delusions of claim: multiple lawsuits for damages claims that the paranoid is convinced to have suffered (example: inventor dispossessed of his invention, claiming a filiation, etc.)
> Erotomaniac delusions: a delusional conviction of being loved by a person, generally of a higher social status. This delirium is more common in women and begins around thirty. It evolves in three phases: hope to be loved, spite when the person realizes that it is not and finally grudge. During this last phase, we must be wary of the risk of an aggressive act on the person who has been loved.
> Delusions of jealousy: delusional conviction of being deceived in one's relationship. Men would be more often affected than women. Here too there is a great risk of the aggressive act on the spouse and the alleged lover.
2 - The delirium of interpretation
This delirium is centered around several ideas. Indeed, it is gradually enriched with misconceptions and the subject feels more and more persecuted. The alleged conspiracies are at first professional then family. Finally, any new fact is interpreted as having a meaning in this delusion of persecution.
3 - The delirium of relation of the sensitives
It occurs in people with a so-called sensitive personality, that is to say marked by distrust, susceptibility, tendency to scruple, guilt and hyperemotivity.
This delusion also includes ideas of persecution. The subject, often a woman, has the impression that her colleagues or relatives make fun of him, the critic. But instead of being demanding and aggressive, the sensitive person will develop feelings of shame and inferiority in relation to the accusations of which she believes herself victim.You want to react, to give your testimony or to ask a question?
