bulletproof mentality

PSYCHOLOGY

A popular term for a mindset more typical of women–that of invulnerability–who tend not to seek medical advice unless absolutely necessary.

The bulletproof mentality often results in an underuse of preventive health care and screening services, which may translate into a shortened lifespan due to poor management or late diagnosis of chronic or dread diseases.

Reference NY Times 14/5/95; C14
