    Agreed, and they forget that motivations matter more than a label itself, and that behaviors that appear similar can be motivated by entirely different factors. People often lack nuance as well, projecting their own marginal thinking onto others, and look at a vignette of something as if it is the whole. Not very "big picture" thinkers.

     I think I know what you are trying to say, but is that nuance?

    Meaning, they absorb the whole of someone, rather than harp on details and treat one facet of someone or one action like it's everything the person is. People who don't fragment or idealize/devalue are likely going to see someone complex and multi-faceted. I can't be sure, but it seems logical that the complexity/dimension they perceive would humble them and they wouldn't be so sure of their armchair conclusions.

    Disorders kind of help establish where in the spectrum of potential motivations the person is ballparking though.

    Sometimes I need to double-check to see if it was written by me or by you.
