In neurosis, we are dealing with hysterical blindness or loss of the voice, that is, the voice or gaze are incapacitated. – Less Than Nothing

in psychosis, on the contrary, there is a surplus of the gaze or voice, for a psychotic experiences himself as gazed upon (paranoiac) or he hears (hallucinates) non-existing voices. In contrast to both these stances, a pervert uses the voice or gaze as an instrument, he “does things” with them. (Slavoj Zizek)
