Déjà Vu-is the experience
of being certain that u
have experienced or seen
a new situation previously
–u feel as though the
event has already
happened or is repeating
itself. The experience is
usually accompanied by a
strong sense of familiarity
and a sense of eeriness,
strangeness, or weirdness.
The “previous” experience
usually attributed to a
dream, but sometimes there
is a firm sense that it has
truly occurred in the past.
2.Déjà Vécu- (pronounced
vay-koo) is what most
people are experiencing
when they think they r
experiencing deja vu. Déjà
vu is the sense of having
seen something before,
whereas déjà vécu is the
experience of having seen
an event before, but in
great detail – such as
recognizing smells and
sounds. This is also usually
by a very
strong feeling of knowing
what is going to come next.
In my own experience of
this, I have not only known
what was going to come
next, but have been able
to tell those around me
what is going to come next
–and I am right. This is a
very eerie and
unexplainable sensation.
3.Déjà Visité-is a less
common experience and it
involves an uncanny
knowledge of a new place.
For example, you may know
way around a a new
town or a landscape
despite having never been
there, and knowing that it
is impossible for you to
have this knowledge. Déjà
visité is about spatial and
geographical relationships,
while déjà vécu is about
temporal occurrences.
Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote
about an experience of this
in his book “Our Old Home”
in which he visited a ruined
castle and had a full
knowledge of its layout. He
was later able to trace the
experience to a poem he
had read many years early
by Alexander Pope in which
the castle was accurately
4.Déjà Senti-is the
phenomenon of having
“already felt” something.
This is exclusively a mental
and seldom
remains in your memory
afterwards. In the words of
a person having
experienced it: “What is
occupying the attention is
what has occupied it
before, and indeed has
been familiar, but has been
forgotten for a time, and
now is recovered with a
slight sense of satisfaction
as if it had been sought for.
recollection is always
started by another
person’s voice, or by my
own verbalized thought, or
by what I am reading and
mentally verbalize; and I
think that during the
abnormal state I generally
verbalize some such
phrase of simple
recognition as ‘Oh yes—I
see’, ‘Of course—I
remember’, etc., but a
minute or two later I can
recollect neither the words
nor the verbalized thought
which gave rise to the
recollection. I only find
strongly that they resemble
what I have felt before
under similar abnormal
You could think of it as the
feeling of having just
spoken, but realizing that
you, in fact, didn’t utter a
5.Jamais Vu-(never seen)
describes a familiar
situation which is not
recognized. It is often
considered to be the
opposite of déjà vu and it
involves a sense of
eeriness. The observer
does not recognize the
situation despite knowing
rationally that they have
been there before. It is
commonly explained as
when a person momentarily
doesn’t recognize a
person, word, or place that
they know. Chris Moulin, of
Leeds University, asked 92
volunteers to write out
“door” 30 times in 60
seconds. He reported that
68 per cent of his guinea
pigs showed symptoms of
jamais vu, such as
beginning to doubt that
“door” was a real word.
This has lead him to
believe that jamais vu may
be a symptom of brain
6.Presque Vu-very similar
to the “tip of the tongue”
sensation – it is the strong
feeling that you are about
to experience an epiphany
– though the epiphany
seldom comes. The term
“presque vu” means
“almost seen”. The
sensation of presque vu
can be very disorienting
and distracting
7.L’esprit de l’escalier
(stairway wit)-is the sense
of thinking of a clever
comeback when it is too
late. The phrase can be
used to describe a riposte
to an insult, or any witty,
clever remark that comes
to mind too late to be useful
one is on the
“staircase” leaving the
scene. The German word
treppenwitz is used to
express the same idea.
The closest phrase in
English to describe this
situation is “being wise of ideas” idea.
The closest phrase in
English to describe this
situation is “being wise
after the event”. The
phenomenon is usually
accompanied by a feeling of
regret at having not
thought of the riposte when
it was most needed or
8.Capgras Delusion-is the
phenomenon in which a
person believes that a
close friend or family
member has been replaced
by an identical looking
impostor. This could be tied
in to the old belief that
babies were stolen and
replaced by changelings in
medieval folklore, as well
as the modern idea of
aliens taking over the
bodies of people on earth
to live amongst us for
reasons unknown. This
delusion is most common in
people with schizophrenia.
