 The term is attributed to Klaus Conrad,who defined it as the “unmotivated seeing of connections” accompanied by a “specific experience of an abnormal meaningfulness”.

In 1958, Klaus Conrad published a monograph titled Die beginnende Schizophrenie. Versuch einer Gestaltanalyse des Wahns (“The onset of schizophrenia: an attempt to form an analysis of delusion”),in which he described in groundbreaking detail the earliest stages of schizophrenia. He coined the word “Apophänie” to characterize the onset of delusional thinking in psychosis. This neologism was translated into English as “apophenia” (from the Greek apo[away from] + phaenein [to show]) to reflect the fact that a schizophrenic initially experiences delusion as revelation.

another type of “non-ordinary bias”:

With Amos Tversky and others, Kahneman established a cognitive basis for common human errors that arise from heuristics and biases (Kahneman & Tversky, 1973; Kahneman, Slovic & Tversky, 1982; Tversky & Kahneman, 1974), and developed prospect theory (Kahneman & Tversky, 1979).

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 conspiracy concerning a perceived threat towards oneself. Historically, this characterization was used to describe any delusional state. In modern colloquial use, the term “paranoia” is sometimes misused to describe a phobia . [1] The general lack of blame in phobia disorders sharply differentiates the two.
