Nurses and doctors will often describe a patient’s behavior as responding. The patient is “responding to unseen (or internal) stimuli.”
While it is difficult to know if another person is having psychotic experiences, often a persons behavior can suggest that a psychotic experience is occurring. The indicative behaviors could include appearing to watch something that others cannot see, speaking or laughing when no-one else is around, or simply unusual behavior you might not expect, such as walking backwards.
