EaST CoAsT MaCHete : Let the man play the damn 🎹 🎹🎹 Piano. 😕

Bob Roberts : Will someone just get him a damn piano?

Noddiga norpan : Poor poor poor man. I hope his spirit has found peace

Nellsism : "Whats supposed to be wrong with you?" "No doctor has told me" "I find that hard to believe" "I tell the truth"

Goofy Doffy : He's like battling on his own thoughts before answering.

Mitchley Groenewald : He's like Sheldon Cooper from Big Bang Theory.

Michel Linschoten : And que all the youtube experts on psychology. 😂😔

rollyboy BCH : I'm not sure I understand. Could u make that clearer for me? No 👌

Luca Iraci : Theres a fine line between brilliance and madness.

Fofocult649 : What’s his skin care routine cause he is P O P P I N’

Chris Dykstra : I love how this guy thinks before he speaks. More people should do that.

Kiersten Anderson : i get why people love that he "thinks before he speaks", but that's not quite what he's doing. he's a catatonic schizophrenic. the pauses are catatonic episodes. as someone with absense seizures i go through a very similar thing. there's a moment of nothingness, and then a slow processing of the words. still, he's such a well-spoken man. smart guy. but don't forget that these pauses are more than what they seem!

Jennifer K. : The patient knows he's being exploited by the interviewer.

caz dinleyen kamyon şoförü : This is the summary of life: "People dislike me because i am not completely like them."

Tatiana Pfalz : In these interviews from the ‘50’s, I noticed that people don’t use fillers like um, uh, hmm. They think before they speak. I like that

Crazed Scot : Maybe he's the sane one and we're all crazy.

MilkHound : If normal people's brains work like highways, a schizophrenic brain is like a giant parking lot where you drive over the lines most of the time. Simple and complex thoughts become the same, and even when it becomes a major handicap, it's too beautiful to let it go. Interviewer: "I'm not sure i understand. Could you make that clearer for me." Man: "No." No seriously.. I've been diagnosed with schizophrenia since i was 7. This video is like watching myself in slow motion. Speed up these thoughts to the point that the strange one's fly under the surface and that's me. I'll think about learning to play the piano and then immediately think of all the steps necessary to do so. Normal people would say: "I think I'd like to learn how to play the piano." But if a schizophrenic looses track of reality in the middle of such a visual thought, they might think it's already happened. I've never dropped acid, but I hear the experience while the drug is similar to being schizophrenic. Every time I try to describe it is different from any other description I've made before. It's like an incredibly powerful and incessant feeling of Déjà vu. So even when your aware of reality, it's hard to accept it. Most people only have this problem when they're in intense emotional pain. For us it's all the time, in pain or not. If it's really bad even pain becomes confusing. The first thing is to try and not become emotional about it. Getting angry or sad just adds to the confusion, or worse, you get stuck in an emotional loop and spiral down into hell. The cure for schizophrenia requires a lot of mental gymnastics. Have you ever watched a documentary where every new piece of information challenges your opinion, changing it back and forth. It makes you feel stupid and insecure. It might be okay because eventually the documentary ends and whatever your finally opinion is you can be sure about it. But what if all those changing opinions happened in the space of a single thought. Could you be sure then? Could you handle that without being confused or letting it slow you down? The trick is to decide your opinion without having to run yourself through the whole documentary. Not every thought has to be fully explored. Trust that facts can be assumed. Learn which instincts to trust and which to not. Eventually your questioning of reality becomes like blinking. It's there, but it's barely noticeable and easy for people to ignore. Sometimes i do get stuck on a single thought, but I've developed a healthy enough ego to just let that shit go. So yeah... Develop faster thinking with good decision making skills and have a healthy ego.

Formixah : This guy has been destroyed by psychiatrists.

Celeste Diaz : He's similar to Sheldon.. I'm in shock.

John McLain : I bet this guy is smarter then the people who are making fun of him.

Zee Zee : I think ya'll came here to check if y'all schizo or not . just saying .

David Melling : Man Sheldon had some issues outside of big bang theory eh?

Harry Nield : He reminds me of that guy off the Big Bang theory.

Queen of Detroit : I would totally be his friend.

Less Hidal : This young man has better communication skills than half the people I’ve encountered in my life

Ken David : So sad,cute kid,I hope he got better

Nick Jones : It's buster from arrested development!

RyanImitheoS : Dude looks like Pinocchio when he became a real boy

Michael Angellotti : I highly doubt this is a catatonic schizophrenic. I see no stupor or excitement. Seems more of an asbergers case. He might be a highly functional one at that.

Nee : This man was my uncle. I’m not going to give any names, but for those of you who are concerned with how things turned out for him, not well. There’s so much to address here. First let me say that he was being treated in this video with meds. Without the medication his mood ranged from complete delusion to catatonic. As for being gay, I don’t think he had much of a sex drive at all. With or without meds. As for the idea that he was put here because he was gay by some unloving family, that’s ridiculous. I don’t have time to say all the things my family tried just to make his existence somewhat peaceful just for his own sake. My family had a couple of openly homosexual and lesbians in it even back in the sixties and with the exception of my mother’s father no one gave a shit. My uncle suffered with meds and even more without. After forty some odd years, most of which he spent in institutions, he took his own life by way of drug overdose. By the way, the comment about the plot twist, he never had a piano was funny because he didn’t. His seeming obsession with piano came and went as did obsessions with religion, especially the Catholic Church and government. As far as I know he couldn’t play a lick. He was very ill at his best and a living shell at his worst. I hope that answers some questions because that’s all I have to say on the matter. He’s been gone since the late eighties and I really hope that other members of my family don’t see this video, mostly because of the comments from people that somehow think they understand him better than the people who suffered with him. One last thing, I think people thought that he was talking about sitting or standing effeminately or something. No, he was talking about sitting or standing motionless for hours. Usually not even his facial expression would change but when it did it was usually related to something in his mind only. I really can’t begin to tell you all how heartbreaking the whole thing was. He did seem intelligent and with meds he did remind me of a high functioning guy with autism I once met.

Jason Rae : Oh my days!! Sheldon really did have issues b4 bigbang didn't he

JooseMunkee : "I... don't understand what you m-" *H A V E Y O U T R I E D T O G E T T H E I N S T R U C T I O N*

Tylor Whitt : What's with you weirdo commenters bringing sexuality into this? It's like you want him to be gay so badly... And why so much hate towards the interviewer? He's being very polite when asking questions and displays patience when waiting for the response. This video gives us so much insight as to how a man in his condition may process information and his surroundings. Not for some science experiment.

Lo']['uZ : Its crazy. All his pauses. He has to listen to all the other voices giving him answers.

bianca : He looks painfully uncomfortable there

Lerp Jefferson : Definitely my favorite Gary Numan interview. It’s true that he didn’t play keyboards like other people. When he got out of the hospital he started a synth-rock revolution!

Dima Shanin : I think his real diagnoses are depression and PTSD

Dave Kellar : I wish I could have a conversation with him to say it’s ok

SciMaCalculus Peta : You're not alone☺ I really understand your situation..

Douglas G : After reading the comments , i think hes the normal one here

TaysonPlaysGuitar : So sad 😢 i feel so sorry for people with schizophrenia. It seems very terrifying and crippling.

ponytailjones : I think I would rather sit and talk to his person than 98% of the general population.

SciMaCalculus Peta : Everybody's unique Everybody's special..☺

Dave Kellar : Poor guy I’ve been catatonic before and it’s frightening as hell couldnt move my limbs they did

Robo Cop : Look at his rapid eye movement. One can only wonder what is going on in his head. He seems very intelligent though.

catoonz : I feel like he is really good at piano

Mike Martinez : “Open the pod bay doors, HAL.”

c woody : Did anyone else jack off to this?

eric mepho : His smarter then an average person but they see him crazy
