A personality disorder is a mental health condition that is distinguished by unhealthy thinking patterns, unstable emotions, and skewed perceptions. There are various types of personality disorders, some of which include paranoid, schizoid, antisocial, borderline, narcissistic, avoidant, and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder. Personality disorders may develop over time due to past trauma, negligence, and violence that cause subsequent anxiety and stress. These feelings of worry and fear can ultimately influence personality instability and vulnerability. Managing your personality trait tendencies through the understanding and guidance of a professional is important to one’s functioning in relationships and society.
