What Is Pathological Jealousy?

Jealousy is an emotion related to insecurity about a potential loss or inequity in the distribution of resources. The term is also associated with a feeling of being possessive of another person, such as a partner or friend.

Most people experience jealousy from time to time, but extreme jealousy can greatly interfere with daily life. One such example of extreme jealousy is pathological jealousy, which is a clinical condition that is characterized by an unfounded suspicion of the partner׳s infidelity that modifies thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

An individual suffering from pathological jealousy may interpret irrelevant incidents as conclusive evidence of betrayal while refusing to change their views even when confronted with conflicting information. This can come in many forms. Such as Delusional jealousy, Obsessive jealousy, Morbid jealousy, etc.

Some of the signs of pathological jealousy include:

  • Accusations of looking or giving attention to other individuals or throwing anger about something a person cares about other than the friend/partner.
  • Frequently asking the partner/friend about his/her past life and overthinking about their reappearance in life.
  • Checking phone calls and messages to verify friend/partner’s exact whereabouts.
  • Laying conditions regarding contact with the friend/partner’s social circle.
  • Verbal and/or physical violence towards the friend/partner.
