Is society sick? Are we sick? Let's treat our drive to conform as a disorder we can diagnose and fix. This episode is a hypothetical deep dive where we treat our obedience to social pressure like other personality disorders. Main topics: DSM-5 entry for Social Pressure Personality Disorder (SPPD) 2 contrasting case studies Crossovers with other disorders How to manage and break out of your social pressure problems We develop a set of symptomatic criteria, case studies and a treatment plan to get us to live an independent life on our terms. Anyone wanting to take charge of their life instead of their life living them should listen. It's also designed to help you think like a psychologist and imagine how a therapist would approach diagnosing and treating such a disorder if it existed.
