What is crazy, really?

If you’ve ever seen the movie Girl Interrupted, theres a quote by the main character “Crazy isnt being broken or swallowing a dark secret. Its you, or me, amplified.”
It got me thinking, what is crazy? In the dictionary it mentions the words insane, mental, senseless, infatuated.
Whats your personal definition?

Of course non of us are perfectly balanced in our mind, but insanity seems to be an extreme mental imbalance. Whether it shows up in science as a chemical imbalance or not doesn’t really matter.

Crazy is a word that stupid people call smart people cause they don’t understand them.

Crazy is a word to classify people that perceive reality differently than the norm. They can’t compete in the intersubjective space of the majority, and therefore they are stigmatized and criminalised.

I think crazy is maybe seeing and processing things differently than others. I think it could be fast or slow, but to be considered crazy it would be confusing and not make sense to most peoples minds being our brains function in similar patterns and speed. To be crazy I think is not something a crazy person would identify as crazy because they have always thought how they think. Maybe a crazy person will question whether they are crazy or not when something is pointed out or compared to others. But to really know another would need to understand how what seems irrelevant or confusing is explaining where a person’s thought is.

Crazy is what people don’t understand. It is a word that people use to label those who don’t fit in to their own group.
