He seems more well put together than most people my mother suffers from this and it's bad cause the voices she hears she cant even control herself but I guess that schizophrenia affects others differently
I like how he silently thinks about how to answer the questions, then answers in a computer generated voice like way.
Anyone else wants to hear him play the piano?
Hate to burst yalls bubbles but hes just a tick upset bc he is being recorded.(if ya didnt know they dont like to be recorded)he thinks hes being punished.think about it people.lol
He is Soo radiant in that forbidden eccentric ancient feel and gorgeous touch of merely me noticing he might have been touched by black arts in such things of discovery of music he is interested in as piano is one of the richest givers of tears and felt with such things. Oh of course a person that domineers an individual such as this one with it's own "smart" book of science upon his welfare of heart turning that beauty into what is "out there" "unacceptable" is no care of a being obviously in much and probably a suffer of others fear and needs of who he is as I find his character to be a breathe of fresh air to such world and life misgivings ! This is no flaw of being as much runs on insecurity even vanity of health manipulate. Even survival a profit of money off an individual in contort in giving sickness and even death as it speaks of "care". It is obvious they give not heart where he has one that is hurting from mistreatment and poor perception in analysis on him. In all a spoken to be " crazy " I wonder on the normals out there days as no one cant play a harp cool all the time who they will go cry or talk to in knowing what they need of heart rather than a mindsets that isn't even good for what they know hurts inside their own!!
This is from the 60s 70s? When those with mental illness were seen (and still are ) as abnormal, aberrations, lepers of society and Disposable trash. Something to be proded and dissected. Made a spectacle of. Shame on this callus unsympathetic, evil system. Guy speaks to him as if he were an alien from Plant Zolkyr.
I was watching Ghostmane video and the popped up. They didn’t tell him he has a mental illness. The people are stranger than he is. Also why does he look like the tin man?
Is anyone getting Trinity the Tuck vibes from this guy?
You can definitely can tell he’s medicated in this video. I feel for him and those alike. But his honesty and transparency on how he perceives himself and those around him is refreshing but I can tell some of his claims are delusional unless people are lying to him.
This guy reminds me of Sheldon Cooper from Big Bang Theory.
They fuc ked with his head bigtime ....Bastards will burn in hell i promise 🔥 🔥 🔥
THEY HAVE SCARED THIS MAN ....GOD WILL JUDGE THOSE SYCHIASTRIST!
He is incredibly well-spoken. You've gotta admire the vocabulary and grammar.
While I don't mean any harm to this guy and wish him well, it is extremely obvious that he's not "normal" in the actual sense of being able to function properly in daily life. All of us are different and there is no 'normal' as far as doing things. However, there is a normal as far as basic common sense thinking, knowing how to act in life, etc. There is a baseline and he clearly wasn't anywhere near it, so they put him there. He's probably on a good amount of meds here, but who knows what he is like without them? Even in his calm actions that you see here, which I do not believe are his true self, he is exhibiting delusions. He may want to play piano as a hobby, but that doesn't mean he'll be good at it. The piano doesn't matter, it's that he wants to accomplish a task and his mental mindset is not there. He doesn't seem to get that his thinking process is not normal. He reasons that it is because of how he plays the piano...no, it isn't. It's how he acts and thinks. Without meds or at certain times of day, he likely has more violent delusions and outbursts. He places blame on how he plays the piano instead of realizing his actions. Schizophrenics always associate certain events with other unrelated things. He associates his reason for being there as how he plays the piano differently and how others see him. He sees himself as normal in his eyes, of course. My grandmother has bad paranoid schizophrenia with occasional olfactory and visual hallucinations. She also associates things that are completely unrelated and would make you say, "What? How did you even get that?" She'll make stuff up to make things how she wants them to be.
HES GAY, CYA 💜
He seems highly intelligent, very precise with his words and actions, he gives it through thought before he speaks, very good CYA 💜
He seems almost gay with his tone of voice and appearance, I don't know maybe he is, he reminds me of finch on American pie, doesn't he look like finch from American pie, Lol CYA 💜
What year was this filmed in the 1970s why do we disrespect people who are mentally ill or mock them, leave them alone don't make fun, but this guy seems like he's an exteristriall being? No disrespect, Lol just kidding, he's a pot head,CYA 💜
Autistic king 🤴 in my opinion..
ghost runnin deaththrow shadows
I’m so glad I came upon this comment section filled with mental health professionals, psychiatrists, experts in human behaviour. 🤦♀️
I bet you he's right there on the verge of a genius
Why are people still segregating crazy??? ....when the entire world is crazy
I feel like maybe he was gay and society just tried to call it something else. I mean no offense I truly believe something isn't right here.
SHELDON ..BIG BANG 😇
Are these personality types dangerous?
His lexicon is quite nice
He is wearing too much highlighter
Any background on this guy? Why was he there really?
He sounds damaged, not crazy
100% honest and transparent - so refreshing. Most social interaction is phony, shallow BS I'd rather not deal with
Seems like a nice guy.
It sounds like an interview with Jeffrey Dahmer. This people can be the most dangerous of all when they lose it. Chills😱
I feel like fucking this doctor up he’s blatantly messing with this poor guy he even said it’s becoming too involved to described this young man is very intelligent just has things mixed up the guy is being a straight asshole he should jump up and say I’m gonna bite your face off 😂😂😂
Это же Шелдон из теории большого взрыва!
How sad. I hope this poor soul found peace.
Crazy thing is he acts and has many characteristics of someone who’s autistic. It’s sad just because they didn’t have much knowledge of it they classified him as “crazy” and put him in a mental institution.
on his medication as the person commented below, he seems mostly normal. ive been around many autistic people and i know without a doubt their body language shows fear not lack of brains.
He is very robotic. I wish someone would get him a piano. Very sad.
I'm having bad diarrhea rn because I had six taco bell tacos. 😫
It’s Sheldon from Big Bang theory
I would have loved to be his friend and help him with his keyboard skills he is correct he is different from other people he is actually intelligent!
Jared Kushner is a weird fucking dude…
This is really sad. He looks like he's going to bust out crying. The level of health care has changed drastically. And needs to continue to change. He doctor or whoever was interviewing him had no compassion
This poor guy is gay in a time when they convinced you were nuts so you went 😭
i doubt any "doctors" or "family" he had were actually trying to take care of him. id say they were trying to change him; from the doctors to everyone else around .
Why don’t you tell us how you came to that conclusion from a 10 minute video without knowing anything else about his background, his condition. I’ll wait….
fuck those doctors they don’t know shit you asking me a million questions how about you suck me up
Go spend time with people with his condition instead of having pity for him and anger for the people that spend time with him.
He may have problems but I think he is on the spectrum and it wasnt known back then and should have got a lot more help.
OK, he talks oddly, but listen to what he says. He is far more sane than the TV wannabe interviewing him. LISTEN to his words, NOT his demeanor. He is in a hostile environment and FRIGHTENED. -One wrong move and they'll put him the SHOCK SHOP. -Followed by more thorazine than you can imagine. Read, "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and you will be able to see Big Nurse lurking behind the poor guy. So yeah, give him a piano and save the state a lot of money! He night be a Jazz genius. Monk was a little weird. and no one followed him around with thorazine. He is surely not a dangerous person. Would you rather run into him on a dark street at 3:00AM, or the latest Rap star?
Like others I wonder how things turned out for this man, I hope he is safe and content with his life.
I can't be the only one who thinks he talks like Sheldon from Big bang theory!!!!
I wanna know what his skin care routine is
god bless him i hope he's gone on to live a good life
Did this guy sit on top of the piano and play? I’m lost
Could simply be aspberger's / autistic but back then not diagnosed.
The way his mind organises his thoughts is obviously very challenging for him. Despite this he is eloquent and polite. Poor lad
He is beautiful. Tragically so. The questioning has him perplexed, it looks as though as far as he can understand, he functions in the only way he knows how, and that is as anyone else may function. I’m sad to read his life was hard. Neurotypical people have always ruled. Neurodivergent, shunned.
I can hear a demonic voice talking to him . Telling him what to say . You can see him listening to it . I know the background is distorted a bit but I can hear it
They have him brain washed
He's definitely gay in 50s that why..
Look like Sheldon from Big Bang theory
Everyone laughed at Sheldon on TV. When the TV was off, not so much.
The catatonic part refers to not moving normally or talking, staring into space. He’s obviously heard explanations from psychiatrists about his condition and somehow (perhaps from his inability to separate what’s real from what’s not) convinced himself that the reason he’s there is due to his bad piano playing skills and how he “moves when playing”. It’s so sad to see, poor man. 😞
This looks like abuse. It looks like torture.
Sad how they don't mention his real name and the name of this video is "Catatonic Schizophrenic". This makes me sick, this person could have been brain washed or worst threatened...The way the interviewer talks to him is also rude if you hear his tone when he ask's the question's, as if judging him...
Am I the only one who is getting serious Trinity The Tuck vibes? #lookalike
I'm just here to say ... Shiney face
I'm fairly certain they have this man on medications which is slowing his thinking. That's exactly what they do in the healthcare system today. I worked at a mental healthcare facility and I felt completely terrible handing out sedatives and various medications relative to impairing the thinking process. All I had to do was sit down and discuss things face to face like a f*cking human being and it showed results. At the same time while being drugged on sedatives; these humans are expected to "heal". This is total bullshit is what it is. How can you "heal" when you are induced with medications? Not a single "for profit" business has appeared to pay any attention to their mental wellbeing but rather just loading them up with drugs to delay the real issue that requires attention.
Hes searching hard inside for those answers, poor guy cant help it.
This guy behaves more sanely than the average leftist face diaper, vaccinated antifa karen I see almost everyday unfortunately.....it's a very sick world. especially now...
My nephew has schizophrenia, they have episodes and can change the way they think. It’s a difficult situation.
They probably fucked this guys brain up with a lobotomy or electro shock therapy. Those places were like hell.
So...RBF can get ya put away?!?
Extremely drugged too.
Is this the CEO of Facebook???
He’s so precious, may he Rest In Peace
@joep toep but you don't know if it's true
He committed suïcide in the 80s by taking a drug overdose. A nephew of him also posted a long comment in here about him.
@Stefania Suárez he witnessed it first hand
How do you know he died no?
Why is eleven from stranger things in the thumbnail?
He seems better than the most of the men who exist today
I like to look at him when he pauses to process his thinking and it looks like he has so much stuff in his head he has to focus on each thing he thinks about separately to formulate it... and when he said he cant answer and after a while he knew how to answer was like he did not focus on the right thing and afther that he did and realized what was the real question... omg human brain is strange (just my idea I am high)
My only question ks what year was this interview? anybody know?
He seems respectful, tbh. Just a very literal person. I imagine in a less tense/awkward/etc. situation, he would be more relaxed, and his body language may not look as odd as it does in an interview. He looks atleast slightly uncomfortable. He looks like a functioning member of society, I dont see why he was put in a mental institution unless he was deemed a danger to himself or others. He either really hasn't done anything to be called dangerous, or he's an evil genius hiding being a serial killer. But I doubt it's the latter. He looks like he wants to go home and just do what he loves, play the piano for people. I'd love to hear him play. He may have mental illness of some sort or another, but sometimes that brings out the best in people.
Why is he all sweety and greasy looking
The amount of light you needed for film at that time, very hot, and harsh lighting creates reflection. Hence, camera make up for actors and news people back then
The man conducting the interview is absolutely incabable of making something meaningful out of it. A true embarrasment. If he was an actual professional in the field, this would have been much more interesting. The two did not connect almost anywhere at any point during that painful conversation.
Would someone plz get this man a 🎹
He reminds me of Sheldon Cooper a little bit
Truth makes people uncomfortable.
It's like he is possessed and a spirit is telling him all the answers to say.
This is not an example of a catatonic schizophrenic according to the medical definition. He appears to be functionally autistic, but video is too short to tell.
Back then even an Aspberger individual would have misunderstood
It's crazy that it says he suffers from catatonic schizophrenia; and 98% of you didn't even take the time to look up what that is before you started typing some painfully ignorant shit
I am the only one who is finding him scary and creepy 😦? I fell like he is well controlled with medications that is why he is talking so slow and he is calm but in the reality he is a pure danger ⛔️…
You're projecting. There is no evidence he is dangerous or would harm another person.
Poor man...not easy life...karma things...
Sheldon picked up some of his bits
