  Have you ever gone to see some comedian and thought, man, that guy is nuts!

  你是否曾经看过一些喜剧演员,然后想,老兄,那家伙真是疯了!

  [Comedian Patton Oswalt:] “So in my head, I’m like, well I’m clearly going to be being chased by mutants on motorcycles.”

  (喜剧演员巴顿.奥斯瓦尔特):“所以在我的脑海里,我就像是,好吧,我很清楚我将要被机车上的变态追赶了。”

  Well, you may have hit the nail on the head. Because new research finds that comedians show high levels of psychotic personality traits. The study appears in The British Journal of Psychiatry.

  好吧,你还能说得更一针见血一些的。因为新的研究发现,喜剧演员表现出高水平的精神病患者的人格特质。这项研究发表在《英国精神病学杂志》上。

  Creativity is often associated with mental health issues. Think Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh, Michael Jackson. But what about comedians?

  创造力常与精神健康问题联系在一起。想想埃德加.爱伦.坡,文森特.梵高,迈克尔.杰克逊。然而这和喜剧演员有什么关系呢?

  Psychologists gave more than 500 funnymen a personality test that assesses traits associated with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. And they found that the comics score higher than uncreative types, and even higher than actors, on a range of psychotic traits, including fear of intimacy, impulsive behavior, difficulty focusing and a belief in the paranormal.

  心理学家对500多名滑稽喜剧演员们进行了人格测试,评估他们在精神分裂症以及双相型障碍这两种心理疾病之间的相关性。他们发现,在害怕亲密、冲动行为、难以集中注意力和对超自然现象的信仰等一系列精神病特征上,喜剧演员们得分比没有什么创造力的人高,甚至比一般的演员要高。

  The data doesn’t mean that all comedians are cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. But these psychotic tendencies may actually help promote lateral thinking and an ability to connect far-fetched ideas to come up with comical conclusions.

  该数据并不意味着所有的喜剧演员都是如此疯狂。但他们这些精神病倾向的性格也许真的有助于促进他们的横向思维,以及将不着边际的想法和喜剧效果关联的能力。

  [Oswalt:] “That abiding belief in the coming Road Warrior wasteland, that’s the reason I tried to go off my meds.”

  奥斯瓦尔特:对于未来荒蛮战士之路亘古不变的信念,就是我放弃治疗的原因。
