Have you seen somebody who looked rich but they sneakily steal an item and didn’t pay for it? This is how kleptomaniacs behave. Kleptomania, also known as Klopemania, is defined as an impulse control disorder where the person has the inability to control or refrain himself from stealing items other than personal or financial gains. Most of these behaviors happen during late adolescent and young adulthood years, happening more in women than in men. The condition was highly sensationalized because some famous Hollywood stars were caught or known to be doing such behaviors.
