Yes, and this distinction provides one as well with an interesting
street-fighting technique.

When aggressed, if you ask "are you Axis 2 or Axis 1?", chances are
that while the other party is wondering what the hell are you talking

versed in modern psychiatric jargon, you cab obtain a little more time
to assess what your further course of action should be... :-D
