Is this the correct answer? Please help!
If a person believes that his or her mind is being controlled by outside forces or that he or she is getting special coded messages from the television, this person is experiencing which type of psychotic symptom?
I choose D
Hallucinations involves sensing something that do not exist, e.g., hearing voices. The TV program does exist.
I would say B delusions: A person holds false beliefs they insist are true, regardless of how much the facts contradict them. Delusion of influence is when people feel they are being controlled or influenced by others or by unseen forces.
There answer is delusions. To be exact it is delusions of influence.
