COMPUTING PSYCHOTIC, 1. a psychotic who from his reactivity figure-figures. He’s inconstant in his conduct, he’s computive. He figures it all out, he’s got explanations. His psychosis is derived because these are crazy explanations. He’s obsessively solving a problem that does not exist. (SH Spec 83, 6612C06) 2. the computing psychotic passes quite commonly for a normal. Here the individual is taking dictation solely from a facsimile of some past moment of pain and is acting upon the advice of that “circuit” and is calling it thought. The psychotic personality is distinguished by its irrationality and its perversion of values. The distinguishing characteristic of the computing psychotic is his utter inability to change his mind.
