CoinerDove of the Chowder System

An emotional distresser is a headmate who attempts to cause other headmates emotional distress. This can either be done on accident or be purposeful, but it's always done with the intent of helping the system, or someone outside the system.

Emotional distressers will usually unintentionally harm the headmate they're targeting in the process.

This is always in hopes of protecting the system from something bad happening. What "bad things" can constitute as can vary heavily: from logical or sound reasoning, to things that don't seem to make sense outside of their point of view. Possible examples of "bad things" could range from an emotional distresser believing that going to a specific location would harm the system- to them believing walking in a certain way would lead to something bad happening.
