Insane: in a state of mind which prevents normal perception, behaviour, or social interaction; seriously mentally ill.

So, people who are insane have a very disturbed state of mind and act out in ways that are considered to be common in those who are severely mentally ill.

Sane is a contrast to this as it is when a person is a clear-headed and has no distorted perceptions on life.

I think there are degrees of sanity and insanity, but passing along on a spectrum dependent on the mental health of the person as well as social stances and their perceptions. Some people can be more “mentally disturbed” than others but still be categorised as insane.

I would define as mentally insane everything that runs at least on a destructive and self-destructive track. There are grades of varying degrees between the two poles, but this must be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Can a person be insane, but not harmful to themselves or others?

may be, but I don't think so. cause imo being insane includes an ever-increasing loss of self-control.

In the definition of insane it does say it disallows normal communication and socialisation so I highly doubt it, personally.

There are different types of "insane".

Pick up the book DSM-5, and insane takes on a lot of different variations.


The categorization of insane/sane is of itself only a flawed model to help man make sense of their fellow man. Problem is it leaves out the grey areas.
