The person suffering from IED, technically categorized as an impulse-control disorder, may describe these repeated rages as "seizures, " "spells" or "attacks" which, very much like sexual orgasms, build up to an intolerable crescendo of tension and arousal, reach a point of no return, and are, at first, followed by pleasurable relaxation and relief. But after the fact, the violent perpetrator may (though not always, which can indicate the possible presence of psychopathic narcissism) feel remorseful or ashamed of their bad behavior or evil deed. However, even in between these destructive and dangerous episodes, such individuals manifest subtler signs of an anger disorder: poor impulse control, hyperaggressiveness, irritability, hostility, embitterment and barely controlled rage expressed in somewhat less violent ways, like screaming, ranting, intimidating, threatening, throwing things, slamming doors or punching walls.
According to the DSM-IV-TR, patients exhibiting "narcissistic, obsessive, paranoid, or schizoid traits may be especially prone to having explosive outbursts of anger when under stress." I would say this is equally true of those with more severe forms of Antisocial or Borderline Personality Disorders. And, as the current diagnostic manual makes quite clear, "Aggressive behavior may, of course, occur when no mental disorder is present. Purposeful behavior is distinguished from Intermittent Explosive Disorder by the presence of motivation and gain in the aggressive act. In forensic settings, individuals may malinger . . . to avoid responsibility for their behavior. Anger as a normal reaction to specific life events or environmental situations also needs to be distinguished from the anger that may occur as part of an aggressive episode in Intermittent Explosive Disorder . . . with little or no provocation." (pp. 666-667)
What is an anger disorder? What causes it? Anger disorders describe pathologically aggressive, violent or self-destructive patterns of behavior which, in my opinion, are symptomatic of and driven by an underlying and chronically repressed anger or rage. Anger disorders result primarily from the long-term mismanagement of anger, a process in which normal, existential anger turns insidiously over time into resentment, bitterness, hatred, and hair-trigger rage. Anger disorders may also be caused or exacerbated by psychosis, neurological impairment and substance abuse, all of which can impair one's ability to resist aggressive, angry or violent impulses. Today, many patients suffering primarily from an underlying anger disorder are diagnosed, inappropriately in my opinion, with Bipolar Disorder, which is incorrectly considered by most (not all) psychiatrists and psychologists to be a genetically based biochemical imbalance best treated with medications rather than psychotherapy.what technology was used to build the pyramids why startups register in delaware what technology does verizon use whose company is fabletics whose product is a minimum how many manufacturing companies are in nigeria where to launch kayak on windermere who system dynamics how much solution for bissell carpet cleaner how much is microsoft roadmap what tech companies are laying off how long engineering degree how management is a science how often roadmap releases are published when entrepreneurial activities slow down when technology and humanity cross why manufacturer's specifications who buy products and who use product where to download project sekai what london station goes to cambridge whos technoblade who science father where science has lease how many science bear quests are there how many device can use iwanttfc what device is this mac address how technology works why manager role how many project management processes are there which startup is best in india how many device can use spotify premium where to launch rockets near me who set up only fans why entrepreneurs don't scale when technology and humanity cross summary what science is on the act why company culture is important where to launch model rockets what development made exploration to africa the man company best products where is data from system in stored how many workers built solomon's temple what design style is restoration hardware how much product photography cost how much business credit can i get why workers leave their jobs which manufacturer makes the best tv startup company maker's mark why project based learning is important how often business continuity plan be tested roadmap meaning what system is the liver part of how much solution for bissell carpet cleaner how many project diva games are there why technological advancement is important where to teach driving near me what start up business how many teaching positions are open in nc which teaching methods can be used by teachers products whose demand rises when another who is responsible for product quality who started whose line is it anyway why manufacturer's specifications when design user interface roadmap when do restaurants open how often to maintain muscle where to design wedding invitations what company is bts under who started whose line is it anyway how far phone from apple watch how many teaching days in a school year where to forecast weather when workers identified with the interests of capitalists why products are cheaper online how many technology parks are in india where to move from london where technology is going how many device can use iwanttfc when the manufacturer established where management audit is first used where to produce oxygen who product specification from where dowry system started where do workers live on nantucket how science and technology affects society whose father was socrates how many solutions does the pair of equations who designs products where is roadmap in jira why startups fail pdf how engineering materials are classified how much system boiler how much system 8 powerball how project management works where problem solution where does technology comes from how much businessman earn where management audit is first used what system is the spleen in who manager got sacked where to design clothes online when technology gets ahead of society whose project is naia why device charging slowly how far can technology go how much engineering make how system works who started whose line is it anyway where is sandro from project runway now which system supports sales forecasting how solution is saturated how much business credit can i get whose company is tesla where technology is going how solutions are saturated whose immune system is weakened how technology has changed our lives
