I’m sure you must be wondering how one’s personality can be a disorderWell let’s define that first for better grasping.
Are you one of who flares up at the slightest of things or one who throws around things with little or no track of value when provoked?
Do you avoid people, or just gets easily irritated the sight of people?
Do you find extremely difficult to share one’s view no matter how simply put or empathetic it might be for others? Well here you go.
According to Wikipedia “A personality disorder is a type of mental disorder in which you have a rigid and unhealthy pattern of thinking, functioning and behavingA person with a personality disorder has trouble perceiving and relating to situations and people”
Now, note the word “mental” and “trouble relating”Isn’t that something you’d like to know just incase.
Medically they’re grouped and I’d advise you check them out yourself but at the common level here’s a few you should familiarize with as you relate with people day-to-day.
Paranoid personality disorder: The thoughts, feelings and experiences associated with paranoia may cause you to:
-find it hard to confide in people, even your friends and family
-find it very difficult to trust other people, believing they will use you or take advantage of you
-have difficulty relaxing
-read threats and danger (which others don’t see) into everyday situations, innocent remarks or casual looks from others.
This might become such a big problem in your life that you need a professional check up
Schizoid personality disorder: Many people with schizoid personality disorder are able to function fairly wellThough symptoms include :
-finding difficulty forming close relationships with other people
-choose to live your life without interference from others
-prefer to be alone with your own thoughts
-not experience pleasure from many activities
-have little interest in sex or intimacy
Yes, Everyone has their own eccentricities or awkward behavioursBut, if your patterns of thinking and behaving make relating to others very difficult, you may have the above personality disorder.
