Personality Disorders The research behind personality disorders

The diagnostic statistical manual (DSM) is a handbook for mental health professionals that lists different categories of mental disorder and the criteria for diagnosing them, according to the publishing organisation the American Psychiatric Association. It is used worldwide by clinicians and researchers as well as insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies and policy makers. The DSM lists 10 personality disorders (see below).

Considerable research has gone into linking these personality disorders with trait models of personality. To see whether, for example, people with avoidant personality disorder are introverted, as might be expected. In 2004, Saulsman and Page published a paper in Clinical Psychology Review, which brought together all of the previous resesarch in this area, and analysed it all as one big study. They found that there were indeed links between personality disorders and the five major personality traits, which are used in this application.

The following is a list of the ten personality disorders and also some details about their relationships with the traits used in this application. When calculating the disorders, the average of each trait is taken into account. So, since the average openness score is actually 70% (not 50%) – even if you have a score of 65% for openness, you will actually be classed as being below-average on the openness trait. Paranoid Personality Disorder

People with a low agreeableness score and a high neuroticism score are most likely to show paranoid personality disorder. It affects only about 4% of Facebook`s sample.

You have paranoid personality disorder

Paranoid Personality Disorder

You
suspect people! They are planning to harm you, to deceive you, they
cannot be trusted. Even when people pretend to be neutral, they
secretly have an agenda, and you are never going to forgive them for
it. Just wait.. you will get revenge.

Schizoid Personality Disorder

People with a low extraversion and agreeableness score are most likely to show schizoid personality disorder. It affects just 3% of Facebook`s sample and so the rarest personality disorder in the sample.

You have schizoid personality disorder

Schizoid Personality Disorder

You
are emotionally cold and the people you know describe you as completely
detached – but you do not notice them anyway, as your world is in your
head. You are indifferent to life`s activities.

Schizotypal Personality Disorder

People with a combination of low extraversion and agreeableness scores, and a high neuroticism score are most likely to show schizotypal personality disorder. It affects 6% of Facebook`s sample.

Schizotypal Personality Disorder

You
are peculiar. The voices in your head tell you what to do, and it does
not matter that your behaviour seems odd to everyone else because you
have a magical power that makes you very special indeed.

Antisocial Personality Disorder

People with low conscientiousness and agreeableness scores are most likely to show antisocial personality disorder. It affects 9% of Facebook`s sample.

Antisocial Personality Disorder

Everyone
else is a tool for your pleasure. They have no rights, and you
disregard their laws. You are aggressive when it suits you, you lie
when it suits you, and your promises mean nothing. You have no remorse.

Borderline Personality Disorder

People with a combination of low conscientiousness and agreeableness scores, and a high neuroticism score are most likely to show borderline personality disorder. It affects 12% of Facebook`s sample.

Borderline Personality Disorder

You
are unstable. Your relationships swing between intensely close and
completely meaningless. Your sense of self changes dramatically, and
the slightest impulse can send you on a destructive course of spending,
over-eating, or drug abuse. Afterwards, you feel empty.

Histrionic Personality Disorder

People with a high openness score and a high extraversion score are most likely to show histrionic personality disorder. It affects 20% of Facebook`s sample and so is the most common personality disorder in the
sample.

Histrionic Personality Disorder

You
need attention! You behave inappropriately provocative and seductive
towards others in order to draw attention to yourself. Your theatrical
language makes everything sound a bazillion times more exciting than it
really is!

Narcissistic Personality Disorder

People with a high extraversion score and a low agreeableness score are most likely to show narcissistic personality disorder. It affects 8% of Facebook`s sample.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder

You
are wonderful, and everyone needs to admire you. You think your talents
and achievements are out of this world, although others don`t find them
quite so distinguished. You have little time for the lives of other
people, which just aren`t that noteworthy.

Avoidant Personality Disorder

People with a low extraversion score and a high neuroticism score are most likely to show avoidant personality disorder. It affects 14% of Facebook`s sample.

You have avoidant personality disorder

Avoidant Personality Disorder

You
have an extreme fear of the potential negative opinions of other people
and that leads you to avoid social situations altogether. You feel
inferior to other people and expect them to reject you. The worst thing
that could possibly happen is being embarrassed in front of all of your
friends.

Dependent Personality Disorder

People with a high neuroticism score and a general combination of low openness, conscientiousness and extraversion scores are most likely to show dependent personality disorder. It affects 8% of Facebook`s sample.

You have dependent personality disorder

Dependent Personality Disorder

You
need to be taken care of. You can`t make even small decisions without
consulting someone else first, and letting them take responsibility for
the consequences. If a close relationship ends, you urgently seek
another, because how else can you take care of yourself alone? You will
volunteer to do the most horrible tasks just to show how grateful you
are to your close friends for being there for you.

Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder

People especially with a high conscientiousness score and also a low extraversion score are most likely to show obsessive-compulsive personality disorder. It affects 17% of Facebook`s sample. Note that obsessive-compulsive personality disorder is different from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)! The personality disorder is simply related to perfectionism, whereas OCD is related to repetitive behaviours that make it difficult to live a normal life.

You have obsessive-compulsive personality disorder

Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder

Everything
must be ordered and controlled, even if it takes a lot of time and
effort. You spend so long taking care of the schedule and making sure
that the rules are upheld, that the point of any activity is lost. You
won`t complete a project until it is exactly perfect, and you prefer
not to work with others because they just don`t do things in the right
way.
