Types pf Personality Disorders

PARANOID PERSONALITY DISORDER- Even though there is no logical reason for it, you feel that people are always trying to take advantage of you. When someone questions you, you may get angry. You may not want to tell people about your self because you think they will somehow use it against you. This can make it hard to trust others and form healthy relationships. SCHIZOID PERSONALITY DISORDER- It is hard for you to express emotions. If someone sings your praises or yells at you, there may be little or no reaction. This can come across as "cold". It may be hard for you to feel pleasure. Also, have little interest in sexual relationships. Some may think you lack ambition or goals. SCHIZOTYPAL DISORDER- Your clothes may be odd or messy. You may have strange beliefs. For example, you tell people you can read minds. You often suspect or doubt others' intentions. You might not react to things that make most people emotional. Your unclear and rambling conversations, leave people not knowing how to respond. Outside your immediate family, you might be really anxious and prefer to be alone. ANTISOCIAL PERSONALITY DISORDER- To get what you want, you may try to make others angry, trick them or treat them badly. You may lie. You may do things that are violent, reckless and even illegal. You might just care less about what is right or wrong. When you hurt others, you usually don't feel bad. Alcohol and drug abuse may be a problem also. With this condition, people often have a hard time keeping a job or taking care of their families. BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER- You may have strong feelings of anxiety, anger or sadness that suddenly change. If you feel someone wants to separate from you, you might frantically try to connect with them. You swing between extremes. For example: A friend may be "perfect" one day and awful the next. It makes relationships intense and rocky. There may be drug abuse, reckless driving or risky sex. You may act impulsively because you don't have a strong sense of who you are. HISTRIONIC PERSONALITY DISORDER- The desire to be notices is stronger than your other feelings. You use your good social skills to make yourself the center of attention. Other people don't seem to interest you. You want to attract people so you may dress sexy even when it is not appropriate. You have over-the-top emotions and your speech changes very quickly. It may seem like you believe you are acting on a stage. NARCISSISTIC PERSONALITY DISORDER- In order to make yourself look good, you must ignore or hurt others to do it. You may brag a lot. You may pretend to be someone you are not. You may stop people who want to have their say. This is especially true if you think you are more important. When you do not get treated the way you want, you may get mad. Because you are insecure and oversensitive, you lash out if criticized. Also you get moody and depressed, if someone makes you feel less than perfect. AVOIDANT PERSONALITY DISORDER- With this condition, you would rather be alone because you fear you may do something foolish. You will not take even the smallest risk that someone will reject you or make you look bad in front of others. You may see yourself as unattractive. You find it hard to try new things because you make problems bigger than they need to be. This makes you very uncomfortable in big groups. You may be afraid to connect with others. OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE PERSONALITY DISORDER- This is NOT the same as obsessive compulsive disorder. That condition is where a pattern of unreasonable thought can lead you to do something over and over. Such as, washing your hands too much to avoid germs. With obsessive-compulsive personality disorder, there is a desire to control people, tasks or situations. Your attention to order, rules and details can be extreme. You find it hard to relax. You may feel you have to do everything yourself. You may judge people too harshly. DEPENDENT PERSONALITY DISORDER- Because you hate to be apart from those you love, you may be too clingy. You have serious fear with the thought of them leaving forever. You don't have a lot of confidence so you are not eager to try new things. You feel you need approval from others even in everyday decisions. You start a new relationship right away when one ends. Just to keep someone around, you may put up with abuse.
