how to tell the difference between bipolar 1 and bipolar 2

Recommended Posts

Everywhere I look online, the definition of manic vs hypomanic seems to be less based on a distinction between symptoms and more based on how bad the fallout is (assuming the patient isn't psychotic). Is there any objective distinction? Is it even a binary, or is it just an arbitrary line drawn on a spectrum between people who have worse manic symptoms and those who have worse depressive symptoms?
