* Psychopaths have a version of this which is interesting in its own way. Psychopaths are comparable to neurotypicals in terms of logic and language skills, but their "mirroring" is less. They have little to no subconscious empathy, to the point that they can't rely on instinctively recognizing other people as other beings whose emotions matter (compare to how a small toddler has to be taught that other people aren't just objects - they have to consciously rise above that level). They have an adult's rational intellect, so they can form a logical framework of ethics, rather than acting on a case-by case "moral compass". Thus when psychologists interview these people under heavy scrutiny, and ask them emotionally/morally provocative questions, they can respond with what sounds like word salad. Directly compared to the world salad of schizophrenics, this has been termed "semantic aphasia": caught out beyond the reaches of their framework, some just try to fake their way through a rambling response - poorly, like a student trying to bluff their teacher into thinking they did the reading by repeating what everyone else was talking about.

* In ''Literature/ISitBehindTheEyes'', Emily begins to suspect that something is trying to [[DemonicPossession possess her]] when she starts blurting out seemingly random words mid-sentence whenever she is thinking too deeply. The words she yells out form unsettling sentences when put together, such as "LET ME OUT!". [[spoiler: [[TomatoInTheMirror The truth is actually more complicated]] and [[MindScrew disturbing]]]].


-->'''Dr. Shima''': Yes sir! True satisfaction! That's what discipline brings! Even the five court ladies dancing to frog flutes and drums had it, and so did the whirl with the recycled paper! Computer graphics playing in my head, and I like it! I don't support technical parfaits and the snobby little petty burgeois that sit there uneaten, and my position on that is common knowledge to everyone in Oceania! Now the time has come to return home to the great blue sky! Where confetti falls like stardust and everything shaken around the shrine gates with the mailbox and the refrigerator leading the hip-hop festival! Anyone who's concerned about expiration dates step aside now! No one gets in the way of ''my'' glory train! They need to really analyze ''all'' the livers of the triangle goose party! Ah! This whole festival was put together by 23rd graders [...]. You see? Now I am truly grand, the ultimate one! *laughs maniacally and runs off towards a window*

* In Satoshi Kon's ''Literature/{{Paprika}}'', a mad dream is used by terrorists to inflict people with temporary insanity. The victims break down into long winded, bizarre speeches that don't make any sense at all. It's actually [[WordSaladHumor kind of amusing]], right before said victims start throwing themselves off of buildings.
