In addition, the interactions between these personalities must be tracked and taken into account, and each of these assorted vectors requires its own speculations, estimations, analyses, and predictions of future reality. As can be readily seen this exhausting effort in the abnormal sufferer of PIC leaves them no time to enjoy the finer things in life, such as diagnosing the provenance of different lattes, or predicting the next installment of General Hospital or West Wing.
