What are personality disorders?

Personality disorders are enduring patterns of inner experiences and behaviors that deviate from societal expectations and cause distress or impairment in various areas of life. These patterns are deeply ingrained and typically emerge during adolescence or early adulthood, persisting over time. There are several types of personality disorders, including but not limited to:

  • Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD): Individuals with BPD often experience intense and unstable emotions, have difficulties with self-image and identity, struggle with maintaining stable relationships, and may engage in impulsive or self-destructive behaviors.

  • Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder (OCPD): OCPD is characterized by a preoccupation with orderliness, perfectionism, and control. Individuals with OCPD tend to set rigid standards for themselves and others, often leading to significant distress and impairment in various aspects of life.

  • Dependent Personality Disorder: People with dependent personality disorder have an excessive need to be taken care of and struggle with making decisions or taking responsibility for their lives. They may cling to others for support and fear being alone.

  • Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD): ASPD is marked by a disregard for the rights of others, a lack of empathy, and a pattern of irresponsible and manipulative behaviors. Individuals with ASPD may engage in deceit, violate societal norms, and display a persistent disregard for the well-being of others.
