Mental examination.

The following mental conditions are causes for rejection of membership:
(1) Psychosis or authenticated history of a psychotic illness other than those of a brief duration associated with a toxic or infectious process;
(2) A history of a psychoneurotic reaction which caused:
(a) Hospitalization;
(b) Prolonged care by a physician;
(c) Loss of time from normal pursuits for repeated periods even if of brief duration;
(d) Symptoms or behavior of a repeated nature which impaired school or work efficiency;
(3) A history of a brief psychoneurotic reaction or nervous disturbance within the preceding twelve months which was sufficiently severe to require medical attention or absence from work or school for a brief period;
(4) Character or behavior (personality) disorders as evidenced by:
(a) Frequent encounters with the law enforcement agencies, or antisocial attitudes or behavior which, while not a cause for rejection, are tangible evidence of an impaired characterological capacity to adapt to the demands of the service;
(b) Sexual deviant practice such as exhibitionism, transvestism, voyeurism, etc.;
(c) Chronic alcoholism or alcohol addiction;
(d) Drug addiction, including the use of drugs;
(5) Character and behavior disorders where it is evident by history and objective examination that the degree of immaturity, instability, personality inadequacy and dependency will seriously interfere with the performance of duties as demonstrated by repeated inability to maintain reasonable adjustment in school, with employers, and fellow workers and other social groups;
(6) Other symptomatic immaturity reactions such as authenticated evidence of neurosis which is habitual or persistent, not due to an organic condition occurring beyond early adolescence (age twelve to fourteen) and stammering and stuttering of such degree that the individual is normally unable to express himself clearly or to converse in a normal manner;
(7) Specific learning defects secondary to organic or functional mental disorders.
