"No!"

The "No!" of the psychotic expresses his or her departure from the common sense of the community into a world of his or her own creation.  The psychotic operates as if to say, "I'll see and do it my way!"  He or she does not acknowledge the requirements of communal life (unlike the neurotic, who acknowledges it only to seek excuses from it, and unlike the sociopath, who acknowledges it only to defy it). Organic malfunctioning, where it can be identified, appears to facilitate the withdrawal rather than to determine it.
