At some point, you’ve probably heard someone use any or all of these four words to describe someone. But there’s a really excellent chance that person had no idea what these terms mean. But SciShow is here to help clear up some of these definitions, and explain why the weather isn’t schizophrenic, and how your ex probably isn’t actually a psychopath.

I can’t stand when people say something like “your so autistic”.... or even better, they make fun of it in a meme...it makes autism out to be a joke when it’s complete hell for some of us who actually have it.

I think instead of policing words due to a facetious representation of one's character or mental stature, we should create a better understanding of what mental illness really is. Most people do not minimize or disbelieve the need for someone that is paralyzed and uses a wheelchair as a result of their disability, because of the physical manifestation of one's lack of abilities aka they can't walk. Yet jokes and dramatic representations of a non disabled person's inability to do something is often slated as being "crippled". As a disabled person, I take no offense to it because I know that it is not a reflection on the physical struggles I face due to my abilities (and I know most people understand the difference). It's not the jokes or the comical misrepresentation that is creating stigma, it's those who truly see mental illness as something that is all in one's head and ignorantly assumes that a mentally or neurologically affected person easily has the ability to change their behavior or abilities. In fact, I think to forcefully create a PC society will encourage others to use these terms more loosely, as it will be seen as a reflection on attacking free speech. It's a battle that will end up hurting those who truly suffer with medical conditions, and that is something that I would not like to see. Knowledge is power, let's continue to inform.

I have bipolar disorder. I absolutely hate it when people throw around the word bipolar. Thank you for making this video.
Polopony20 (1 месяц назад)
I myself have a personality disorder, and it’s true, for most of my life, until two years ago, I thought “I’m not being mean! The rest of the world is trying to use me!” Or I thought that was just how I was. I only learned about it (Paranoid Personality Disorder) when I was watching a YouTube video about writting characters with disorders and the person used PPD as an example. I looked into it and it matches me perfectly. I have yet to get a diagnosis but I want to...(it’s rather rare so finding someone with training in it is difficult and costs a lot of $$)
Social Anxiety (1 месяц назад)
Aye I joked about OCD just to find out that I actually have it. And my anxiety disorders fecking sucks I hate it I’m barely able to leave my room. Also my friend the doctors believe he have it but don’t want to diagnose it sense he’s only 15.

The term triggered could join this list nowadays, and idk if scishow has already covered that one but if they haven’t that would be a good idea because it’s exhausting to see it used in a mocking way if it’s something you actually deal with.

I do NOT use them incorrectly! I fight for their correct use! Please, why do you always insult your viewers by saying "you are doing this wrong, you haven't heard of that blablabla"?! Do you think, you know all of us? Get over it! And NO! Sociopathy, antisocial personality disorder and psychopathy are NOT the same! Both terms, sociopathy and psychopathy are still in use in forensic psychology! A sociopath has problems with society and its' rules, while a psychopath has problems with having emotions and empathy. You are describing psychopaths, not sociopaths. Please, get your facts right before trying to correct others!

I really love this video. I'm forever hearing things like, "Oh I'm so OCD about the curtains," from co-workers and other people, and it's always very frustrating because I'm certain many of them haven't a clue just how debilitating the reality and not the caricature can be.

Marcello SDLT (2 месяца назад)
The problem is that we, as a majority that unluckily spend few time in researching the meaning of this or that word, use these psychology word as nothing but slurs, insults, metaphors and "simplifications".

Only recently, with intense care, am I able to function normally as a human being. If I neglect to take care of myself, I can't do anything because of the intense paranoia I feel. I remember vaguely when my condition was at its worst looking out of windows and seeing people in the trees, terrifying creatures in corners, under tables, and in different rooms. Being convinced that my fiance was seven different people that changed every time I saw him. And many times taping, supergluing, and one time sewing my mouth shut because I was convinced that if I didn't the "people in my brain" would talk for me and get me in trouble. That's just a few things I experienced before I was forced to get help (I was hospitalized after the lip-sewing incident. At that point it was determined that I was a danger to myself). Schizophrenia is a horrible condition to try to live with, and to hear people use it so casually as a metaphor kind of hurts, almost as much as the misinformation about schizophrenia that's constantly spread around.

Dear everyone, PLEASE stop using "antisocial" to refer to someone who doesn't like to socialize. People with diagnosed Antisocial Personality Disorder are actually quite charming & manipulative.
Hillary Marek (3 месяца назад)
I hate the over use of the term Narcissist. It generalizes a very real personality disorder that is often misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all because people don't know that they need help. Also, Narcissist are not inherently evil. Stop saying that they are and there is no way to be loved by a narcissist. It just takes more work than an average relationship but it's worth it. I'm married to a narcissist and it's a lot of personal sacrifice but it is also very rewarding. I just get annoyed when the only videos out there say that you have to RUN NOW! From a narcissist. You don't. You just need to understand it and behave accordingly. Same as you would when dating an alcoholic or someone with borderline personality disorder, they should not be lumped in with everyone who has ever been a selfish jerk to you. Being a cheating egotistical douche bag doesn’t automatically make them a narcissist. Maybe you just date jackholes. Or maybe it's just you.

I see a lot of people misuse the term “antisocial” when they really mean “asocial”. Antisocial: lack of conscience and morals Asocial: not social

Actually, my ex was a psycho. He suffered atypical brain damage from a stroke. The only emotion he could feel was anger (it isn't stored in the same place in the brain). It took a few years to figure out that he was mimiciing, so I sent him to live with his psycho mother. Now they can mimic at each other!

Another important one is paranoia. It is an actual mental diagnosis where the person has constant or near constant feelings of being watched or followed.

MegaAstroFan18 (4 месяца назад)
I somewhat object to 'schizophrenic' being on here because, while that is a valid point, the word is Greek for "split mind" so you can, acceptably, use it metaphorically to refer to extreme inconsistency. The "split from reality" is the reason the full word, schizophrenia, was chosen for that specific disorder. Still, it is important to know the differences between uses of the word.
dresib (4 месяца назад)
I'm a bit disappointed that in your discussion of the slang term "psycho" you missed the fact that it also refers to psychosis, as it does in the movie Psycho. Norman Bates' problem is not that he lacks empathy but that he has lost his grasp of reality. The term "psycho" conflates two very different disorders.

Actually Benedict Cumberbatch described Sherlock as a highly functioning sociopath. As such he did an excellent job, his relationship with Watson not withstanding. His tendency to not realize whether Watson was listening, concerned, or even actually present (often replacing Watson with various round objects), indicated his belief that Watson was interchangeable. He needed a sounding board, and Watson was good at it, so he preferred him to finding another person for the job.
Paul Ryder (4 месяца назад)
Well done, but one psychological term that is quite popular and almost always misused is "trigger" or "triggered". It is specific to PTSD, and is a re-experience of a previous severe, inescapable traumatic event initiated by perception of a stimulus that was part of the traumatizing event. Today it is usually used to designate awareness of some opinion or fact that contradicts one's own ideology. It is used to suppress opposing facts or opinions by claiming victimhood rather than supporting one's own opinion.

At least include "probably" or just "possibly" in the title because not everyone uses these incorrectly and clickbait is annoying. I love SciShow but titles like that still irritate me to no end.

I'm glad he defined a disorder as something that interferes with normal life. Some people may have slight depression or slight attention deficit, but it only becomes a diagnosable condition when it interferes with normal life. as far as the most stigmatized disorder on earth, I believe that award actually goes to dissociative identity disorder. This is the new name for what many people used to called multiple personality disorder, and while rare, most people now believe it is a real thing. I have personally met a few people who actually have it, and it is a really terrifying, debilitating, and sad disorder. Often marked by periods of intense trauma in childhood, it's related to repressed memory, and those memories come back during instances of stress.

Rose Brown (5 месяцев назад)
I wish dyslexia had been mentioned here as well. People throw that term around pretty freely when they misspell or read something wrong and it's equally misunderstood. As someone who actually has it, and someone with family history of bipolar (and a brother who has it) I tend not to use medical terms to describe people and things. People aren't and shouldn't be defined by a condition.

As a person with a severe panic disorder, I agree. Although I can still call my ex a psychopath because she still has every single one of those symptoms. I hope she gets help though, although she will do everything to avoid help.

What is really annoying with bipolar is that I can experience both at the same time. Nothing like having a ton of energy and still can't get out of bed. I live with bipolar I. I don't know if the other bipolar forms deal with anything like that.

Or when people say that someone that is overly excited or hyped, got ADHD. Peeps.. that's not.. you don't understand.. :( I don't have ADHD anymore, now I got ADD and people often say "wow, you don't seem like someone with ADHD cause you are not hyper", that's because it's two different categories. Like with autism, it's a spectrum. I problems with structuring and planning, I struggle to focus and remember things, and my thoughts are driving through my head like a five lane highway.

sad thing about OCD is that it can be trained onto a few certain things as a form of therapy, to try and cope... unfortunately, the moment that those few focuses get messed with outside of your control... it can to lead to a near psychotic episode. choose your focuses well and try to carry on.

PREACH 👌👌👌 having borderline personality disorder, depression and anxiety I hate it when someone says something like 'argh, I'm so bipolar!' not even realise that people with it have to experience daily
ArcFlash 64 (7 месяцев назад)
Sooooo many people claim to be OCD, especially in the food industry, because they're just so picky about being clean or organized. What is worse is that some just want to tell you as often as possible. Like a vegan who vapes and does crossfit. Just stop for one second and think about what you are saying...

Alex J Brimmer (9 месяцев назад)
My ex was sociopathic, and that's not a way of me saying she was cold or unforgiving or rude. That's an actual diagnosis and it's not like most people assume. There's a lot of distress and anger involved for an individual with sociopathy, especially when others assume the symptoms are no more than an annoying personality quirk.

My least favorite is when people use "autistic" as an insult. I'm autistic and still recovering from years of bullying and ridicule. But I started advocating for autists by writing for my school's newsletter. I also created a petition for American Girl to do an autistic character doll-- https://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/198/069/509/ and am planning on creating an Autism Club at my college.

Love this video! Back when I was a psychology major, I always meet people who try to tell me “bi-polar=multi personality disorder, and antisocial means they don’t want to make friends”, and when you try to tell them otherwise, they get mad. It was driving me crazy in the beginning and then I just learned to ignore it.

Hanna Jung (10 месяцев назад)
I think two equally misused terms are "depressed" and "addicted". At least in Germany that is.I have encountered seriouse trouble in the past to explain people, that being sad is not the same as suffering from depression, and that many actual depressed people were happy if they were sad (yeah sounds strange, but who ever felt this cold emotional numbness that is one symptome of mediochre or heavy depressions knows what I am talking about).Same is it with addiction... "i am totally addicted to shoes/chocolate/football... whatever" to discribe something you really like does in no way account to the loss of control and suffering people with real addictions experience, more so it marks this psychological disorder as just a lack of will. Because those people of course could stop byeing shoes, watch football or what ever they like if they felt that it is harmfull for them, their family needs them, or they are out of cash... a thing an addicted can no longer do without severly suffering from withdrawl, auffering actually that much that without medical help the withdrawl can kill them faster as their drug ever could.
