Insanity is known to be the breakdown of thinking logically. This means that the person has stopped being rational and is sometimes unable to think. People would need to be logical when making decisions and choices. Those who are insane will not be able to think anymore and would act in their deranged state. Obsession is known to be an irrational way of thinking about something or someone.
A person may allow something or someone to be the center of his/her life in such a way that everything will revolve around that item or person. All of the decisions and choices that will be made will depend on how the person can get that something or someone. At times, it may cause people to break different rules.
Insanity is a general condition of having a mental disorder. It is an illness in which someone cannot discern what is real and logical or not and what is right from wrong. Obsession, on the other hand, is only a form of insanity. It is a specific mental condition that establishes when someone cannot control their passions. In the end, passion eventually controls the person.
This emotion becomes an obsession which deludes the person with irrational thinking and behaviors. Insane people, however, are not necessarily suffering from obsessions. People who are afflicted with having obsessions will often lead perfectly normal lives. With insanity, the person will typically lose all ability to function successfully in almost every area of their lives. An insane person will not be able to take care of themselves.
