Psychological disorders in the mentally ill are diverse in nature. As a rule psychological research has examined cognitive disorganization (mainly of thought processes), while only a few studies dealt with disturbances associated with personality changes. It must be said, however, that mental disorders cannot be fully analyzed in terms of cognitive and personality parameters. It is a mistake to reduce the entire diversity of mental disorders to alterations in the organization of intellectual operations or to motivational disturbances.
