Ambivalence - Definition



Definition


Ambivalence is one of the states of mind that make up schizophrenia. It is defined by the simultaneous appearance of 2 opposed feelings concerning the same mental representation: it's a hesitation between several feelings, attitudes, or desires towards a person or a situation. The ambivalent person can then pass from love to hate, desire to disgust, longing to rejection. This makes decision-making complicated. Often, the decision is only partially followed-up on, and can end in an act completely opposite to the decision that was made. Ambivalence leads to changes in behavior and the psychological state.
