What is “crazy”?

Is it when you make a bad decision? “I was crazy doing that. I should have known better.”

Is it a mental health issue, maybe psychosis or schizophrenia or something like that? “Don’t listen to her, she’s crazy. Out of her mind.”

Is it the world around you? “It’s a crazy world.”

Is it something to do with personality? “She’s crazy. Sure she’s fun, but you never know what she’ll say next.”

Is it just the natural, healthy variation between people? “Some of the guys here are just crazy.”

What is “crazy”? Can you really tell the difference between the various suggestions I have made? I think they flow into each other, they are a continuum, a spectrum of experience.
