Are we all to be labeled insane for everything we do?
What rights and privileges do you lose when deemed “insane” by the state? 2nd Amendment Rights are under constant fire and the Obama Administration is running out of time to strip away more of your freedom. Be careful of accepting the term “insanity” from scientists so easily.
From The Daily Mail:
A science writer in the US has claimed that people who are consistently late to engagements could be suffering from a form of mental insanity because their notion of time is distorted.
People who are constantly late may be suffering from a form of insanity, a science writer has claimed.
Those who are chronically tardy to engagements struggle with how they view time and may have a ‘bizarre compulsion to defeat themselves’ by making plans that they know they cannot keep, according Tim Urban.
And he has even created an acronym to describe those people he believes are suffering from the lateness compulsion: Clips, or chronically late insane people.
The science writer claims there are three reasons why Clips are late so often: some are in denial about how time works, some ‘have an aversion to changing circumstances’ and some individuals are ‘mad’ at themselves, reported The Times.
While most psychologists agree there is no cure for lateness, it is possible to change.
Richard E Nisbett, a professor of psychology at the University of Michigan said: ‘If chronic lateness is an illness then so is chronic tendency to interrupt, chronic tendency to run red lights and chronic failure to shine your shoes.
