Personality disorders are disorders that are in reference to one’s individual character. These disorders describe how an individual may act in different situations; the way they view themselves; the way they interact with other individuals, and their general perspective about life. Personality disorders begin to emerge early in childhood and are hard to change without intensive psychotherapy. Additionally, individuals with personality disorders often do not regard the characteristics of their personality disorder as unwanted. Rather, the individual does not see that there is something dysfunctional or wrong with these characteristics. There are several different types of personality disorders that include: Schizoid, paranoid, antisocial, narcissistic, borderline, avoidant, dependent, and obsessive-compulsive.
