Example question: What makes a personality of rapid anger outburst?
At a glance, one can see that question lists an extensive number of symptoms, which easily be classified as self-help looking for clinical advice. However, the OP does form a theory for this, and explicitly asks a confirmation for it. For me, this is enough to make it different. It's essentially the same by replacing women to female rat.
Is this kind of rejection some form of a biological defense mechanism by which a woman pushes an unsuitable mate out? Is there a more scientific term I can use to look up this behavior? What makes a personality of rapid anger outburst?
The observation is very specific. It has numbers ("15 seconds or less from baseline to angry", "up to 3 hours to flare up again") and details that quite private/pertaining to specific cases ("can occur within days of having sex"). However, if one has some knowledge on borderline personality disorder, they can easily see that all these details are general symptoms of the disorder. The reason it sounds too specific because the disorder is less likely known. As far as I remember it, only 2% of population is diagnosed with the disorder.
Question: if a question does have an assumption and asking if it's correct or not, is it still a self-help question regardless of how specific the symptoms are? **If not, then why cannot asking if the assumption is correct or not "de-specifies" the question?
