This wiki focuses around increasing awareness about "Stalking", and more specifically, "Cyber-stalking".
This particular page will be centered around the "Adaptive Personality Defenses" our minds may
utilize to get us through something emotionally unpleasant in some way.

Come join the group on Facebook: "Cyberstalking Awareness"


Adaptive Personality Defenses

Adaptive Personality Defenses are personality traits, characteristics, we harbour and/or develop,
usually to afford our minds the ability to survive, escape from, rise above, etc., something that is
usually emotionally unpleasant for us in some way.
They help us to retain "emotional and mental
resiliency". As a rule, this form of emotional maintenance works favourably for us, but if this becomes
too commonplace, it than can become borderline or cross over into the classification of a disorder.

Maladaptive Daydreaming:


Maladaptive_daydreaming is the title proposed by Eli Somer, Ph.D., for a condition in which an individual daydreams or fantasizes as a psychological response to prior trauma or abuse. This title has become popularly generalized to incorporate a recently-described syndrome of immersive or excessive daydreaming which is specifically characterized by attendant distress or functional impairment, whether or not it is contingent upon a history of trauma or abuse, as introduced in 2009 by Cynthia Schupak, Ph.D. and Jesse Rosenthal, M.D. of New York City. Dr. Schupak and her colleages are currently conducting follow-up research on excessive or "maladaptive" daydreaming in a confidential online study.

See also:

Maladaptive daydreaming (MD) is extensive fantasy activity that replaces human interaction and/or interferes with academic, interpersonal, or vocational functioning.

See also:

Fantasizing: Use of imaginary relationships and private belief systems to resolve conflict and to escape from painful realities, such as loneliness. Is associated with eccentricity, avoidance of interpersonal intimacy, and avoidance of involvement with the outside world. Used by people with an avoidant or schizoid personality, who, in contrast to people with psychoses, do not believe and thus do not act on their fantasies.

Hopefully much more here soon.

A multitude of thanks!

A combined effort of many: taking away the power of the perp! ~ Cyberstalking
To Wikipedia, the Staff and Editors that make this fabulous site possible, and all those that work to continually
add to the wealth of information this website provides to/for the world!

As well, many thanks to ALL the sources and ALL those that have made this information available to share.
Knowledge IS power and by affording knowledge to potential victims, then the playing field between the perps
and the potential victims can become more level, without the criminals only being allowed the upper hand.
