This post is inspired by the questions on the facebook game I started. The game involves asking psychology questions and someone else answering them. One of the question was what are some examples of culturally bound disorders. So here’s a list of 6 examples. I’ve included a source to each one.
Windigo Psychosis is the intense craving of human flesh and obsession that one is turning into a cannibal. This person may also complain of poor appetite, nausea and vomiting and become suicidal or homicidal. This disorder was reported among Northen Algokian of Indians. Source 1 Source 2
Gururumba (“wild man”) episode begins with the person (usually male after marriage) going into homes and taking minor items which they think are valuable but really are not. They sometimes run off into the forest with these items and forget the whole event. They may appear hyperactive and clumsy in movement and show speech or hearing troubles. Gururumba was reported in New Guinea. Source 1
