“Understand paranoid people better by following them around”

"Understand paranoid people better by following them around” (or “To understand paranoid people better, follow them around") is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images.

(The original tweet is no longer available.) “To understand paranoid people better, follow them around” was posted on Twitter by Mauruschka (and others) on June 21, 2013.

“Understand paranoid people better by following them around” was posted on Twitter by TheCheerfulNihilist on April 16, 2019. “#understand #paranoid #people #better by #following #them #around” (This message is shown on an image.—ed.) was posted on Twitter by Z. Cab on June 22, 2019. This version of the saying probably comes from the image.


Wikipedia: Paranoia
Paranoia is an instinct or thought process which is believed to be heavily influenced by anxiety or fear, often to the point of delusion and irrationality. Paranoid thinking typically includes persecutory beliefs, or beliefs of conspiracy concerning a perceived threat towards oneself (i.e. the American colloquial phrase, “Everyone is out to get me"). Paranoia is distinct from phobias, which also involve irrational fear, but usually no blame.
