Personality Disorders

Everybody’s personality is specific and unique.

Most people are flexible enough to learn from past experiences to adapt to new circumstances. Nevertheless, people with personality disorders find it difficult to control their behavior. They experience extreme feelings and thoughts – so acute they have trouble coping with day-to-day life. They act in ways they can’t control and struggle to relate to situations and people. As a result of these challenges, personality disorders often cause significant problems and limitations in patients’ jobs, social encounters, school lives, and personal relationships. Patients are often out of step with others and with their community, to such an extent that their personal and broader social circles may be considerably disrupted.

Types of Personality Disorders

The term “personality disorders” helps clinicians group a set of typical features for individuals with aspects of their personality challenging to deal with.

A person with untreated disorders can rarely enjoy stable, satisfying, and functional relationships with others. Therefore, their relationships tend to be problematic.

The common thread that links all personality disorders is difficulties in behavior and relationships. However, there is a lot of variation in these difficulties.

There are ten different types of personality disorders. A diagnosis is often only made where the patient’s problems disrupt their routines and relationships, provoking too much distress. Personality disorders include Borderline, Narcissistic, Paranoid, Schizotypal, Schizoid, Obsessive-Compulsive, Dependent, Avoidant, Histrionic, and Antisocial Personality Disorder.
