I[edit]

I came expecting a lengthy article -- not a definition. I was thinking particularly of the prison guard/prisoner experiments in disinhibition by sanction of authority. These experiments followed the holocaust, and relate to what's been going on with people in American custody. There is also considerable scholarship and speculation on internet disinhibition. Even Jeckyl and Hyde could be part of an article. Forget the wiktionary move -- leave the stub notice, and maybe this will induce some to add some content. Meanwhile, I'll keep looking for authorities on disinhibition for my own purposes, and try to write a few paragraphs for the article at some later date.

Yeah, I was expecting more as well, having come from Alzheimers. —Locke Cole 12:15, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

As I am working with people with dis-inhibition from brain injury I felt this definition needed a major review to push this page along. I have left some of the non-clinical references re youth, but make it clearer here the concept of dis-inhibition is being applied outside its clinical sense (though still valid for such an article for anyone wanting a run down on dis-inhibition.

I could spend more time to make the article better, but have left it a little flakey in the hope others will be encouraged to work on it some more.

This article does not address the positive effects of disinhibition. Some disinhibition is characterized by increased confidence and bolder or more aggressive stances and conversation which may be construed as a desirable trait in certain instances where an individual initiates a courtship.
