Derivation and Evolution ProParanoid and Related Definitions


1) A medical term loosely applied to someone who mistakenly fears being persecuted by others... followed, spied upon, stalked, threatened, etc.; 2) A medical term indicating a diagnosed psychosis or mental illness of one degree or another, often associated with further diagnosis as being delusional or schizophrenic in nature; 3) A general derogatory label used in offhand remarks intended to embarass and socially and/or politically marginalize persons who complain of such persecutions, primarily in order to avoid having to deal with the possibility that such complaints may be true. Note: People do not want to believe in a boogy man, especially if it means an offical investigation; no one wants there name on a report about conspiracies, gang stalking, untoward surveillance, mind control, etc.
a) related: opposite of paranoid
1) Sorry, there is no useful term in the English language for someone properly reacting to ACTUAL persecution. Some say 'cautious' is the word, but ONLY the victim seems to use that word, usually in self defense against suggestions of being paranoid. Why? Our civilization, certainly as exemplified by professionals within law enforcement, the courts, and medical institutions, simply does not want to believe in conspiracy or bogeymen. If you ask for help, you are simply dismissed as being paranoid, even if you have proof to the contrary -- they don't want to hear it, and the victim is victimized a second time in a whole new way.
b) related: metanoia
1) An mental illness defined as 'the belief that everyone is good/benign and the world/universe only wants to help you' regardless of the reality. Note: This is the TRUE opposite of paranoia but represents an inverse illness, not a state of affairs. Excuse me for saying it, but this would seem to be the state of mind of all law enforcement, media, and medical professionals who, by failing to consider that not every bump in the night is imagined, are deluding themselves: thus by their behavior, it is THEY who are mentally ill! If they call you paranoid, answer 'At least I not a metanoid,' and ask them to look it up.


1) Someone who wishes to aid and support those accused of being paranoid, especially when help has been denied elsewhere; 2) a concatenation of 'professional paranoid' -- see next. See also HOW TO GET HELP
