Medical Difference of opinion disorder?

  1. Dec 5, 2005 #1
    When two individuals have a difference of opinion, especially about politics or religion, then they get furious, aggressive and become your worst enemy.

    On the other hand, if you know someone or even a stranger that shares similar view then you, then automatically you get the feeling he is your best friend for the time being.

    Not sure if this is a case of narcism, as posted in the other thread, but I have noticed alot of ordinary people displaying these traits.

    I'm wondering if this has a correct name and also what are the casues of this?

    Birds of a feather flock together.

    People normally tend to seek out the company of those that think like they do. This is normal behavior.

    Narcissism is the love of ones own self.
