Hoco speech and thought disorder

Postby gw » 08/19/07 at 14:53:11

From the Wikipedia entry for "Thought disorder (highlighting is mine):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thought_disorder
In psychiatry, thought disorder or formal thought disorder is a term used to describe a pattern of disordered language use that is presumed to reflect disordered thinking. It is usually considered a symptom of psychotic mental illness, although it occasionally appears in other conditions.

It describes a persistent underlying disturbance to conscious thought and is classified largely by its effects on speech and writing. Affected persons may show pressure of speech ([highlight]speaking incessantly[/highlight] and quickly), derailment or flight of ideas (switching topic mid-sentence or inappropriately), thought blocking, rhyming, punning, or 'word salad' when individual words may be intact but [highlight]speech is incoherent[/highlight].


Thus, I thought it worth preserving some recent hocolocution:

So is Robert Shiller "loco" for owning 60% stocks, hocus?

Hooboo gooboo locca mocca.

Geenra sordum trinka nebulot?

Cornseeni vu!

Rob


So why does Robert Shiller own 60% stocks, hocus?

I don k-now! bow dough anseee!

Kinn I be borrows de Benda baggo rocko wha!

Even leaving those particularly fine recent nuggets aside, I defy anyone to tell me he does not exhibit these on a more or less constant basis:

* (speaking incessantly and quickly),

* derailment or flight of ideas (switching topic mid-sentence or inappropriately),

* thought blocking,

* rhyming, punning, or 'word salad' when individual words may be intact but speech is incoherent.


He is a nutter.

In response to reasonable questions, he  posts gibberish.   When asked for an explanation, he prefers to let his weirdness stand rather that present a simple explanation.  

On his own blog, he posts long diatribes filled with toilet references that will have only one effect:  drive away readers.

He's consistently self-destructive.

And when it looks like he may actually be accumulating a few readers/commenters (assuming they are real), he shuts down for 2 months and leaves it on full moderate so they can't even talk amongst themselves.

He's consistently self-destructive.  


And/or incompetent.

Who was it that said "Never attribute to spite that which is otherwise explainable by stupidity"?

True enough, especially after reading this nugget from the time capsule in it's entirety!

I went back and read through the thread that you linked to, DRiP Guy, and almost blew ice tea out my nose.  It's a wonderful amalgam of stupidity, transparent lies, delusions, and pomposity (thank you, JWR).   A genuine hoot. :lol:

Glad there's a SeWeR.

I take strong objection to your assertions, Norbert Schlenker.


See if you can say THAT five times really fast without spitting something out. ;)
