If the DSM IV it does not include ‘crazy’,

Male vs female should be a different DSM IV and,

There are homosapiens in the DSM IV and no accounting for Neanderthals and other ‘species’ of human?

Am I smarter than the psychiatrist who wrote the DSM IV?

And should I rewrite the DSM?

And shouldn’t a criminal mind be in the DSM IV?

"Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders"

A diagnostic tool based on whatever science gathered so far, not the human conditions and behaviors index.


And also there are no real stats about Neanderthals and other species of humans other than theories.
Unless someone can claim they personally went into the past over 20000++ years ago, write it in a survey or spreadsheet about it. :lol:


:lol: What constitutes as crazy?
And what constitutes criminal minded?


Also DSM IV has been updated to DSM V as of 2013. :twisted:
So... Yeah, sure. Figure how to rewrite what's considered obsolete in the formal system.

How you want to waste your time is entirely up to you.

Should we tell OP that the manual is in the fifth (V) edition?

Naw, I didn't think so. Let OP revise the obsolete one.

Sorta like revising the Magna Carta or the Mayflower Compact.

Well most criminals in prison do have some sort of disorder from the DSM. Antisocial personality disorder is a diagnoses and so is NPD and other personality disorders. Now while statistics show that people with mental illnesses rarely commit crimes, the minority of them are behind bars and they make up most of the US prison population. US prisons have gotten filled with them since mental institutions and mental hospitals have been shut down.

Also "crazy" isn't really a medical term anymore and doctors don't use that word anymore on patients.

The DSM is going for specificity. "Crazy" sounds a bit too broad.

And we're not under the DSM-IV any longer.

We're under the DSM-V and the ICD-10.
