In other cases (especially in severe cases where there may be other psychotic symptoms such as hallucinations or disorganized thought patterns), the person lacks the control necessary to hide delusional thoughts and may begin to appear “psychologically unstable” to others. In other words, they begin to act out.
When this acting out doesn’t happen, delusional thought patterns are likely to remain hidden from society. As a result, people with delusions rarely pursue treatment. Why pursue treatment if nothing is wrong with you? Why pursue treatment if you are firmly attached to the idea that you are right about what you think?
Are all delusions incorrect or psychotic?
