Prideful Thinking

Disturbed characters think there’s nothing worse than admitting a mistake, backing down, or giving-in because it makes them look inadequate or “weak.”

The Egomaniacal Thinking of the Disturbed Character

Disturbed characters often think they’re so smart, so clever, or so “special” that they can do what most others wouldn’t dream of trying and somehow get away with it. They see themselves as “legends in their own minds.”

The Inattentive Thinking of the Disturbed Character

Disordered characters hear what they want to hear, remember what they want to remember, and learn what they want to learn.

The Extreme Thinking of the Disturbed Character

Disordered characters tend to perceive things in terms of black-and-white or all-or-none.

The Possessive Thinking of the Disturbed Character

One of the biggest reasons why disturbed characters form relationships frequently characterized by various forms of abuse and exploitation is because they think of others as objects to possess.

Egocentric Thinking

When the disturbed character wants something, he doesn’t necessarily think about whether it’s right, good, or legal — or whether his pursuit of it might adversely affect anyone. He only cares that he wants it. His incessant concern for himself and the things that he desires creates a pattern of thinking which embodies an attitude of indifference to the rights, needs, wants, and expectations of others.
