What are Personality Disorders?
Personality is the mindset, experiencing, and acting that distinguishes a person from other people. A personality disorder is a way of thinking, feeling, and acting that deviates from the culture’s norms causes anxiety or functioning issues and lasts over time, says psychiatrist . The personality of an individual is affected by interactions, environment (surroundings, life situations), and inherited features. There are many characters with personality disorders. The personality of an individual usually remains the same over time. A personality disorder is a way of thinking, feeling, and acting that deviates from the culture’s norms causes anxiety or functioning issues and lasts over time.
- In at least two of these regions, personality disorders affect:
- Way to think about oneself and others
- Way of emotionally reacting
- Way of responding to other persons
- Way to monitor one’s conduct
Forms of Personality disorder
Several different forms of disorders of personality are known. They have been roughly grouped into one of the three clusters summarized below, A, B, or C.
a. Personality disorders in Cluster A
A person with a Cluster A personality disorder appears to have trouble with others and typically exhibits behavior patterns that would be considered unusual and peculiar by most individuals. Others may identify them as living in their world of fantasy.
Paranoid personality disorder, where the individual is highly distrustful and suspicious, is an example.
b. Personality problems from Cluster B
An individual with a personality disorder of cluster B struggles to control their emotions and sometimes bounces between others’ positive and negative views. This can lead to behavior patterns that are characterized by others as dramatic, erratic, and disturbing.
Characters with personality disorders also include Borderline personality disorder, where the individual is emotionally unstable, has urged to self-harm, and has severe and unstable relationships with others is an example.
c. Personality problems from Cluster C
An individual with a personality disorder of cluster C deals with constant and debilitating fear and anxiety sensations. They may exhibit behavior patterns that most individuals would regard as antisocial and withdrawn.
An example is personality disorder avoidance, where the individual appears painfully shy, socially inhibited, feels incompetent, and is highly sensitive to rejection. The individual may want to be close to others but to form a close relationship, he lacks trust.

1. Personality Disorder Borderline
Self-harm, an exceedingly unstable mood, and a propensity to perceive oneself or others as entirely good or bad are characterized by this common personality disorder.
2. Disorder of Antisocial Personality
It seems that characters with personality disorders including antisocial personality disorder thrive on confrontation. With people, they don’t even know, such as a clerk in a store, they might get into verbal or physical altercations because they don’t care about the normal social norms against that kind of action. They also seem to get into regular legal problems and lawsuits. In interpersonal relationships, people with antisocial personality disorder can be abusive and display no remorse. Antisocial personality disorder can also contribute to the abuse of drugs.
3. Disorder of Histrionic Personality
In conditions that do not require such a response, Histrionic personality disorder is characterized by highly emotional, overwrought, or dramatic actions. People with a histrionic personality disorder often pay undue attention to their appearance and seek the approval of others constantly.
4. Disorder of Narcissistic Personality
People with narcissistic personality disorder appear to encounter feelings that trust their inherent vulnerability of great self-importance. Individuals with this condition also complain of physical aches and pains that can not eventually be traced to any medical cause.
5. Personality Disorder Avoidant
Avoiding personality disorder is characterized by an extreme fear of rejection and criticism, which contributes to an inability to connect with other people in meaningful relationships. Evading personalities feel a deep urge to be liked and crushed by others if they think they have said or done something dumb in front of others. They prefer to avoid social environments as much as possible as a result of their emotional fragility.
6. Obsessive-Disorder of Compulsive Personality
An obsessive-compulsive personality disorder is not the same as an obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD) (OCD). OCD is a more severe problem with mental wellbeing involving uncontrollable thinking associated with repetitive habits. OCPD, on the other hand, at the detriment of versatility and inclusiveness, is a condition marked by perfectionism. Characters with personality disorders include OCPD individuals prefer to take a “my way or the highway” mentality towards the routines and activities of work and life.
7. Schizoid Condition of Personality
Schizoid personality disorder, a very severe mental health condition that typically involves hallucinations and highly disordered thought, is not the same thing as schizophrenia. It is possible to identify a person with a schizoid personality disorder as “removed” or “solitary.”
8. Disorder of Schizotypal Personality
Again this condition of personality is not the same thing as schizophrenia. Some individuals with schizotypal personality disorder feel they can read the minds of other individuals.
9. Disorder of Paranoid Personality
Paranoid personality disorder individuals appear to be highly distrustful of all other individuals. They see any interpersonal relationship as a risk. This warped point of view causes people with a paranoid personality disorder to act in ways that are very guarded or hidden. Paranoid people may also easily become aggressive if they believe someone is ridiculing or threatening them.
10. Disorder of Dependent Personality
A reluctance or inability to make your own choices or to consciously engage in handling your own life is the distinguishing characteristic of dependent personality disorder.
