15 Incredible Psychological Disorders People Actually Have
Foreign Accent Syndrome
Many people will often exaggerate accents when attempting to speak in a foreign language but others have no control over the matter. Foreign Accent Syndrome is a psychological disorder whereby a person suddenly and inexplicably develops a very strong accent that they didn’t possess before. In severe cases, it is even possible for victims of accidents or trauma to wake up from comas and operations to not just speak in a different accent, but in a completely other language.
Alice In Wonderland Syndrome
This particular psychological disorder has a unique effect on those who are unfortunate enough to have the condition. Alice in Wonderland Syndrome’s most common traits includes changes to a person’s perception, most notably the distortion of a person’s sense of time and space as well as their own body image. It generally causes people to believe that things are much bigger or smaller than they really are or be unable to accurately tell how much time has passed.
Dhat syndrome is another psychological disorder that only affects a specific group of people in the world. It manifests in Indian males who fear that they are losing semen constantly, primarily through leaking and urination. It is believed to arise from the Hindu tradition that semen is a vital fluid and as such, this leads to a fear that they are losing a part of their body that holds significant spiritual meaning for them. It can lead to other anxiety problems such as premature ejaculation and impotence.
