What Causes Being Unsociable?

Being unsociable can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'needs attention' to 'life-threatening'.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose being unsociable, we could:
  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "being unsociable" as a symptom.  Here are four possibilities:
  • Anorexia/Starvation Tendency
  • Pyroluria
  • Mercury Toxicity
  • Paranoia

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
poorly-removed amalgams
slight moodiness
moving white lines across nails
a suspicious nature
bulging eyes from hyperthyroidism
unexplained missed periods
nasal congestion
gums that bleed very easily
occasional confusion/disorientation
prednisone use
chronic nausea
... and more than 60 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of being unsociable:
Cause Probability Status
Pyroluria 91% Confirm
Anorexia/Starvation Tendency 30% Unlikely
Mercury Toxicity 4% Ruled out
Paranoia 2% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

In the Mental Symptoms section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™ will ask the following question about sociability:
Sociability. By nature are you sociable or unsociable?
Possible responses:

Paranoia/Paranoid Personality Disorder
