Designation:
The subject believes that his thoughts are broadcast so that he or others can hear them. Sometimes the subject experiences his thoughts as a voice outside his head; this is an auditory hallucination as well as a delusion. Sometimes the subject feels his thoughts are being broadcast although he cannot hear them himself. Sometimes he believes that his thoughts are picked up by a microphone and broadcast on the radio or television. Have you ever heard your own thoughts out loud, as if they were a voice outside your head? Have you ever felt your thoughts were broadcast so other people could hear them?
