The other element is fascination; higher than fascination, it turns to be enraptured. “Tremendum” has three elements: awfulness, which makes a kind of profound unease; dreadfulness; energy, which creates a huge power. On chapter Four, Otto states that “WE said above that the nature of the numinous can only be suggested by means of the special way in which it is reflected in the mind in terms of feeling. Its nature is such that it grips or stirs the human mind with this and that deter minate affective state. We have now to attempt to give a further indication of these determinate states.
In many instances, one’s emotions divaricate from the environment they either expected or spontaneously arrive eventually. Conclusively, this difference administers a tragic psychological vacillation, disallowing the subject to relieve itself from catatonia. Frequently, multiple products of literature explore the dynamics in central characters, prospecting their desires, their inhibitions, and how those elements may dually infer unwarranted conformity, internal conflict, psychological dismantling, and problematic interactions with one’s surroundings and those who inhabit it. Think of the untitled protagonist in the Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man, who conforms to the Brotherhood’s philosophy of assisting the oppressed while surrendering his identity,
In an article by Dr.Jaan Suurkula the characters actions and survival tactics in both literary sources are easily explained by two major patterns of behavior . in both novels they demonstrate SOB otherwise known as Survival-Oriented behavior which is brain operation that’s “controlled by the primitive areas in the brain” . Dr.Suurkula further explains how SOB is associated with deficient intellectual functioning causing weak judgement and foresight .in terms people with SOB have difficulties in assessing a stressful situation in a realistic way .

People’s bodies can be greatly affected by a concussion. Concussions can affect people’s lives in many ways; one of them is mentally. Some examples are depression, anxiety, and mood swings. Depression involves, “…feeling sad or worthless, changes in sleep or appetite, difficulty concentrating, withdrawing from others, loss of interest or pleasure in life, lethargy (feeling tired and sluggish), or thoughts of death or suicide.” (Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center). Also used by the Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center; anxiety causes to feel nervousness or also to worry a lot.
Capturing a Black Hole It’s unreasonable to define something so arbitrary as depression in just a few sentences. For me, depression is a vacuum, something that pulls up everything: it takes away the good, bad, joy, sorrow, anger, etc. It affects the way you function and takes control of you. Professionals may define it by a set of symptoms and feelings. But for patients suffering with depression, it is more than just the symptoms; it can become an absence of self worth and an overwhelming feeling of loneliness despite the surprising amount of people who have it as well.
Even though individuals can respond differently to signs of insanity, being extremely foolish or mental illness towards the actions without worrying about the consequences. Throughout the story, we clearly believe that the unnamed narrator repeatedly paranoid, insists he is sane, physically and mentally illness, his actions, and motivations. The narrator feels that a disease is making him feel better, but in reality a disease makes us feel worse like cancer. The narrator speaks directly to us, and he states: "True! —nervous—very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad” (Poe 884).
It was fear that establishes the concepts of religion and faith. Angela carter suggests that “the singular moral function of the gothic is that of provoking unease”4 this unease is imputed to the gothic’s representation of the horror and terror, whether in physical form like pain, imprisonment and violent attacks, or in psychological torture like the fear of the unknown. Moreover, Sigmund Freud asserts in his essay “ The uncanny ” that the gothic novels are full of such uncanny, mysterious events which arouse the feeling of fear and astonishment. The uncanny is related to what is frightening, it coincide to affirm what thrills fear in general.5 Elizabeth MacAndrew, the famous Gothic fiction critic, defines this English genre, Gothic fiction, as a “literature of nightmare”: Among its conventions are found dream landscapes and figures of the subconscious imagination. Its fictional world gives form to amorphous fears and impulses common to all mankind, using an amalgam of materials, some torn from the author’s own subconscious mind and some stuff of myth, folklore, fairy tale, and romance.
I regarded and hid them with an almost morbid sense of shame.” Using “blazoned” describes how other men would display their lesser side prominently and vividly, whereas in comparison Dr. Jekyll “hides them.” This shows us the vast difference between Dr.Jekyll 's opinion,a dn the opinions of the majority of man. “Morbid” projects Dr. Jekyll’s disturbing thoughts, degregrading himself. This gives the reader the impression that the darker side appears as a foul excess which Jeckyll wishes to completely get rid of. “Shame” furthers our understanding of this, as it tells us that he is ashamed of having a dark side. This can also mean that Jekyll has mental self-esteem issues, as he criticizes himself over something that is natural and occurs in every human being.
To begin with a purely medical evaluation, one must know the symptoms and criteria for making a particular diagnosis. Frankenstein is an excellent subject to evaluate on a psychological level. Victor possesses numerous flaws in his character, mainly in his narcissistic habits. Narcissistic personality disorder appears to be the main culprit for Victor’s infatuation with science as a means of achieving admiration. Narcissistic personality disorder is simply, “...a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others.
People with this disorder may be perceived as being shallow, and may engage in sexually seductive or provocative behavior to draw attention to themselves.”(Psych Central) “[Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is] a disorder in which a person has an inflated sense of self-importance.” (Mayo Clinic) these disorders may explain his need for power. “...exerting influence over one’s environment or the actions or behaviors of another person—is sometimes used excessively by those who fear the unpredictable and ambiguous, feel they need to prove themselves or fear losing control.” (Good therapy). Also, as evidence of his mental disorders, Nero took his life and soon after the Senate voted whether or not to scratch him from the official record of Roman Emperors (Barrett,
This assessment tool gives a general social evaluation to advance socially capable determination and care (Jarvis, pg.24). It is important when making a psychiatric diagnosis to be aware of the cultural implications and what is considered normal so that culturally unsanctioned behaviors can be differentiated. This is especially true when a clinician is making a diagnosis of personality disorder. However, it appears that certain groups of the population are at a greater risk than others for certain PDs. In general, other risk factors include being Native American or African American, being a young adult, having low socioeconomic status, and being divorced, separated,
For a person who almost was physically and mentally destroyed by S. Weir Mitchell’s “resting cure” for depression, it is not surprising that Gilman structured her story as an attack on this ineffective and cruel course of treatment. Gilman knew that at some point in the reader’s lives’ they too have experienced the feeling of being over powered something or someone. Gilman was maybe hoping on the fact that the readers would know a little something about claustrophobia or resentment, so that you can sympathize with the narrator of this short story in her slow spiral to insanity. I believe Gilman was not trying to create of form of clinical study of insanity but instead to feel every crawling inch of craziness. “The Yellow Wallpaper” is an illustration of the way a mind that is already infected with anxiety can deteriorate and begin to prey on itself when it is forced into inactivity and kept from healthy work.
Exorcism in Islam is called ruqya, and the purpose of it is to repair the damage damaged believed caused by sihr, Witchcraft or Evileye. There are several reasons to be possessed by something bad in Islam. To clarify, the white satan (Iblis) is said to be a tempter; whispering evil suggestions to the human heart. Jinn are often held in folklore to be able to enter a human body physically or haunting them mentally. One of the main reasons that you might be possessed by for is Jinn could sometimes haunt an individual, because the person could (even unintentionally) harm the jinn; urinating or throwing hot water
A stigma is an attribute detectable but sometimes not, used to label those who don’t fit the expected standard. This use of labelling is a powerful tool of language used to make those who are discreditable and discredited based off physical deformations, personal attributes, or tribal relations feel deficient in terms of their social nature. Goffman, in his 1963 novel, “Stigma: Notes on the Management of Spoiled Identity” writes: “…not all undesirable attributes are at issue, but only those which are incongruous with our stereotype of what a given type of individual should be” (3). Discredited (features of oneself that is detectable), and discreditable stigma (features that can discredit us if they are known) are an effect of our language
Does the deferred dream “fester like a sore— / And then run” (4–5) or “stink like rotten meat” (6) or “crust and sugar over— / like a syrupy sweet” (7–8)? The images in these similes seem to say that if a dream is postponed, it rots or spoils or infects the dreamer. In each of the questions, the word choice is casual and dark: “dry up,” “fester,” and “stink”
