  3. What may ultimately make an abnormal behavior into a genuine mental disorder is if the behavior:
    1. is maladaptive (harmful to self or others)
    2. causes significant social impairment
    3. causes significant occupational impairment
    4. causes great personal pain and emotional discomfort
    5. involves a psychotic loss of contact with reality
    (or to varying degrees, any combination of these five factors)
