Affective disorders refer to extra paranormal, long-lasting and manifest emotional reaction, which features extensive affective disorder, psychomotor dysfunction and autonomic symptoms. When judging whether an affective reaction is normal, the doctor needs to consider three conditions: the intensity of affective reaction, the duration of it and its conformity to its surrounding. Normal affections, such as joy, anger, sadness and euphoria are parts of people’s daily life, and they should differ from abnormal affections of affective disorders which last longer.
