> You dont have to go like oh my gosh i have borderline. You are still the same person like before that diagnosis.

Your comment is helpful, important, and well-taken. However, I think the goal is to make someone better than like before that diagnoses. An accurate diagnosis is often the only way that medicine can choose effective treatments. We are getting closer to being able to diagnose certain mental illnesses using objective physiological tests. I guess some purely psychological conditions will rely upon more subjective clinical observations, although psychological tests like the MMPI remain valuable. Phidippus should be able to name some others. I believe that functional PET scans and other physiological tests will end up being helpful for diagnosing predominantly psychological disorders. I recently read some things in Scientific American suggesting how this might be possible.
