Tolerance Of Other People

What Causes Intolerance Of Others?

Intolerance of others can have various causes, just like most other symptoms.  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 intolerance of others, 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 "intolerance of others" as a symptom.  For example, 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:
angry/hostile disposition
being detached from reality
poor ability to relax
being an unsocial person
a suspicious nature
schizophrenia in family members
... and so on

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of intolerance of others.

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 tolerance of other people:
How well do you tolerate other people's mistakes and shortcomings?
Possible responses:
→ I am not critical; I tolerate/forgive easily
→ I occasionally have difficulty tolerating people
→ I'd say I'm about average / don't know
→ I am sometimes excessively critical
→ I tend to be critical, unforgiving, quick to judge
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate high tolerance of other people, good tolerance of other people, moderate tolerance of other people or low tolerance of other people, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as Paranoia/Paranoid Personality Disorder. Being unforgiving is a possible symptom of paranoid personality disorder.
