Passivity Phenomenon

The core feature is the belief that one is no longer in control of one’s own body, feelings or thoughts.  The individual feels that some external agent is controlling them to feel emotions, to desire to do things, to perform actions or to experience bodily sensations.  Respectively, these are termed passivity of affect, passivity of impulse, passivity of volition and somatic passivity.
