Summary/Abstract: A holistic approach to comprehending the human psyche as a substrate of the interplay between the physical and the spiritual allegorically implies that a certain part of the personality functions at the level of atomic and subatomic particles, which are as such subject to the fundamental principles of quantum mechanics. The initial premise of the Quantum Personality, which I intend to assert through this summary, is that certain personality instances also operate on the levels of subatomic and atomic particles. The use-value of the aforementioned postulates is primarily reflected through the critique of diagnostic processes which are based on a subjective validation of mental disorders.
