Bias disorder

Bias disorder, also known as extreme bias disorder, is a mental condition not yet fully accepted by the mental health / science community. However, it is currently being considered to be added to the official list of actual mental disorders: the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders [DSM-TR IV].

Short of being a mental disorder, a bias disorder may explain the propensity of some individuals toward violence and the view that war is the only available solution to personal emotional disquiet.
