What is pathological jealousy or celotype

Pathological jealousy or zealotry is characterized by distrust and obsessive thoughts about a possible infidelity of the couple or by envy of certain characteristics present in a person. When this jealousy occurs in a relationship there is usually a selfish feeling of possession, under a belief that the other person belongs to us.


What is Othello Syndrome

Othello Syndrome, also called celotypic delirium, is a pathology that causes the person who suffers it to be absolutely convinced that his partner is unfaithful. The individual with this syndrome is obsessed with the idea of infidelity and shows obsessive behaviors to try to prove this idea.


Characteristics of jealous people

People suffering from pathological jealousy present a series of characteristics:

  • Low self-esteem: these people have feelings of inferiority and think that others are worth more than themselves, hence the fear that their partner may replace them with someone else “better”.
  • Introversion and lack of social skills: they are usually introverted individuals with little social contact, usually solitary and not very used to social contact.
  • Distrust of others: jealous people are distrustful and insecure in all areas of life, including relationships, and this generates fear of being hurt or judged.
  • Emotional dependence: in addition to being insecure, these people have a great need for esteem and are often very dependent on their partner.
  • Cognitive rigidity: jealous people tend to have inflexible and rigid thinking, with little sense of humor and little tolerance for frustration and ambiguity.

People most vulnerable to jealousy

There are some people who are more vulnerable to suffer from pathological jealousy or Othello syndrome. People who have low self-esteem, as well as a tendency to be insecure and distrustful, are more likely to suffer at some point in their lives from jealousy or unhealthy envy.

Prolonged confinement due to the pandemic has caused jealousy between siblings, pathological jealousy and zealotry or jealousy in the couple to increase markedly. This has happened because we have had to spend more time together and the difficulties in living together that can lead to problems of jealousy and envy have increased accordingly.

Jealousy among friends can be common. Some of the signs that this is so can be:

  • Excessive interest: if your friend insists on asking you about the same issues over and over again, especially if it is related to aspects that affect you personally or are a weakness for you.
  • Imitation of behavior: if, suddenly, one of your friends begins to imitate your way of being or acting, she may actually be jealous or envious of one of your personality traits.
  • Emotional dependence: jealousy can generate emotional dependence between friends, so if you notice that your friend starts to depend on you constantly, you suspect possible jealousy.
  • Sensitivity on the surface: if you see that your friend is offended by anything, becomes defensive or constantly criticizes aspects that she previously considered positive, it may be a sign of jealousy.

There are times when it is necessary to have the help of a professional to overcome jealousy among friends. Talking to a professional psychologist can provide you with the strategies you need to better understand what your strengths and weaknesses are, how to boost your self-esteem and find the root of the jealousy problem and to ultimately motivate you to improve the pillars of trust and mutual understanding on which your friendship is based.
