Response to Dr. Kringlen
Dr. Kringlen: “My professional experience suggests he is unlikely to have been able to act in such an adequate fashion if he is psychotic, in particular schizophrenic,” he declared, saying it is extremely unlikely Breivik has managed to mislead him in his battle to appear as sane.
‘Two days in court changed my opinion of Breivik’, says top psychiatrist / News / The Foreigner — Norwegian News in English.
Response: by Michael Novakhov, M.D.
"According to German psychiatrist, Emil Kraepelin, patients with Delusional Disorder, remain coherent, sensible and reasonable. "
"The delusions do not interfere with general logical reasoning (although within the delusional system the logic is perverted) and there is usually no general disturbance of behavior. If disturbed behavior does occur, it is directly related to the delusional beliefs."
