What Is A Personality Disorder?
Personality is the way we think, feel, and behave in the world. Influenced by childhood, environment, and belief systems, a person’s personality does not change over time. As the name suggests, a personality disorder is a mood disorder that affects a person’s behavior, emotions, and personality. A personality disorder often causes people to react to social situations in ways that may not make sense to others. This can cause distress and feelings of isolation. Personality disorders affect:
- How someone thinks about themself
- How someone thinks about others
- How someone emotionally responds
- How someone relates to others
- How someone controls their behavior
Personality disorders present long-term patterns of unexpected inner experiences, ways of seeing others, and behaviors. People with personality disorders may feel their experiences are distinct from others and struggle to empathize. Left untreated, personality disorders can have lasting, detrimental effects.
Understanding Signs and Types of Personality Disorders
Understanding personality disorders can be confusing. There are ten types of personality disorders. Often presenting in late adolescence, personality disorders include:
- Antisocial personality disorder: Impulsivity, lying, and disregarding the rights and feelings of others.
- Avoidant personality disorder: Extreme shyness, avoidance, low self-esteem, and feeling unworthy around others.
- Borderline personality disorder: Poor-self image, impulsivity, anger, and intense emotions.
- Dependent personality disorder: Trouble making decisions or feeling hopeless without others.
- Histrionic personality disorder: Needing to be the center of attention and often experiences intensely shifting emotions.
- Narcissistic personality disorder: A lack of empathy and feelings of self-importance.
- Obsessive-compulsive personality disorder: Preoccupation with work, avoiding others, obsessing over schedules.
- Paranoid personality disorder: Struggling to connect with others out of fear they will be harmed.
- Schizoid personality disorder: Detaching from social relationships, showing little emotion, and often preferring to be alone.
- Schizotypal personality disorder: Experiencing excessive anxiety, social isolation, eccentric behavior, and distorted thinking.
Studies show that 9% of adults live with personality disorders. Diagnosis requires a qualified therapist. While symptoms may present in late adolescence, diagnosis and treatment most often happen in adulthood when a person’s brain is fully developed.
