The LJ hierarchy of emotional instability and insanity

I was thinking to myself recently after reading some people's entries and the question I asked was, why are so many people so farging nuts? It reminds me of when I was obsessed with the idea of being able to administer the MMPI (a comprehensive psychological battery) to everyone I knew just to see how many psychological derrangements popped up. Baring that ability (since it apparently costs hundreds and hundreds of dollars to get this damn thing administered) I figured that I would simply eyeball the problem and present my own heirarchy of emotional instability and insanity based on recent LJ entries of everyone either on my friends list or whose entries I've looked at recently. I figure I'll update this around once a month or maybe every other month and we can see who has gotten more crazy and who's gotten better. I've even tossed myself on the list though I'm not quite sure how objective I can be on that account. I encourage everyone to do their own rankings...might be interesting to see how perception varies.

Comparably Normal

A couple of notes...
-The distance between levels is not equal. It's only a comparative difference.
-*: I've lost touch with raanve for the most part and only found out she even had a LJ just a day ago. I'm basing her insanity rating on past knowledge...once I read her LJ I might just find out she's become some sort of agoraphobic nymphomaniac with a phobia of shower curtains and have to revise my rating.
-If you have a problem with your relative rating let me know. I'm kinda curious how people view their own level of insanity compared to others. I think hearing things like "You think I'm more nuts than *insert person*?!? There's no way I'm worse than that crazy bitch!" would be interesting :P.
