Thank you to the two students who want to share their knowledge about Schizophrenia. We need people like you on the earth!

Schizophrenia: Reality VS Illusion

This blog is created by two college students who have a goal in mind. To educate the public about the seriousness and frequency of schizophrenia occurring in the United States through WordPress and persuade the viewers to donate to The Mental Health Research Association (NARSAD) for scientific research on schizophrenia.

You may be thinking “Why does this relate to me?” or “Why should I care?”. The answer is simple. You may not know it but schizophrenia affects 2.4 million people in the United States. Though it may seem small, it can affect an entire society in an instant.

Frequency of schizophrenia throughout the United States.

Family members, relatives, friends, and more have to face the struggles of having someone they know diagnosed with schizophrenia. It is not just an illness that affects the victim, both others who are affiliated with them as well.

Schizophrenia is a mental disorder characterized by a breakdown of thought processes and by a deficit of typical emotional responses. What this basically means is that a person suffering from schizophrenia cannot think clearly and does not experience a wide range of emotions that a normal person would. To learn  about schizophrenia’s causes, symptoms, treatment, and more, visit http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001925/#adam_000928.disease.causesto quench your thirst for knowledge.

Schizophrenia has biological, emotional, social  financial, and familial effects that can be discussed in more detail by visiting http://www.ehow.com/about_4777972_effects-schizophrenia-family.html.

Psychopaths, who are they?

I Am Fishead: Are Corporate Leaders Psychopaths?

I Am Fishead: Are Corporate Leaders Psychopaths?

It is a well-known fact that our society is structured like a pyramid. The very few people at the top create conditions for the majority below. Who are these people? Can we blame them for the problems our society faces today? Guided by the saying “A fish rots from the head” we set out to follow that fishy odor. What we found out is that people at the top are more likely to be psychopaths than the rest of us.

Who, or what, is a psychopath? Unlike Hollywood’s stereotypical image, they are not always blood-thirsty monsters from slasher movies. Actually, that nice lady who chatted you up on the subway this morning could be one. So could your elementary school teacher, your grinning boss, or even your loving boyfriend.

The medical definition is simple: A psychopath is a person who lacks empathy and conscience, the quality which guides us when we choose between good and evil, moral or not. Most of us are conditioned to do good things. Psychopaths are not. Their impact on society is staggering, yet altogether psychopaths barely make up one percent of the population.

Through interviews with renowned psychologist Professor Philip Zimbardo, leading expert on psychopathy Professor Robert Hare, former President of Czech Republic and playwright Vaclav Havel, authors Gary Greenberg and Christopher Lane, professor Nicholas Christakis, among numerous other thinkers, we have delved into the world of psychopaths and heroes and revealed shocking implications for us and our society
