I think control is expressed in each of the categories. Is it symptomatic, or is it the underlying root to all the others? I'm not sure.

As for violence to self, I suspect there is a kind of schizophrenia involved in these cases (and to which none of us are immune). If so, then we could identify the various personalities involved and see which categories might still apply.

Very interesting points!
