Paranoia is a thought process believed to be heavily influenced by anxiety or fear, often to the point of irrationality and delusion. Paranoid thinking typically includes persecutory beliefs, or beliefs of [[wikt:conspiracy conspiracy]] concerning a perceived threat towards oneself (e.g. "''Everyone is out to get me''"). Paranoia is distinct from phobias, which also involve irrational fear, but usually no blame.
