dear all, I definition is necessary to be able to diagnose people with cluttering and differentiate them from other symptoms/disorders/syndromes. It is essential to make the definition as small as possible, but at the same the key characteristics should be covered. A symptom based defintion is used by clinician to include or exclude people to the defined category. On the other side a descriptional definition can be effective in relation to cause and treatment. So in my opiniion it is valuable to both types of definitions.
