abnormal condition of the mind that involves hallucinations and delusions and is a symptom of any of various disorders or other causes

Psychosis is an abnormal condition of the mind that results in difficulties telling what is real and what is not.


  • There are two basic kinds of impersonations: those that are publicly supported and those that are not. Examples of the former are an actor playing a part in a play or a small boy playing fireman. Examples of the latter are a healthy housewife complaining of aches and pains or an unemployed carpenter claiming he is Jesus. When persons stubbornly cling to and aggressively proclaim publicly unsupported role definitions, they are called psychotic.
