Personality


The personality disorders mentioned in the last days have a lot of references for one to think about. Do they can in some aspects be seen as disorders, the purpose of having them “portrayed” as such is more to make us think on the traits that constitute them. We can all recognize within ourselves some of those traits, and as long as they are not too intense or too much, and don’t make our life stop, it does not mean one has a personality disorder. That being said, being able to pinpoint our characteristics may help us work on them, and to improve ourselves… part of that is what one do in counseling, therapy, to talk about it, and as we do with puzzles, try to understand it.

  1. I find you've been doing a great work in describing the main features of personality disorders. Of course as you say they can be seen as traits and not really pathological except in the most serious cases.
    That was a very good summary - as we all wonder if we have a trait or another. Congratulations.

  2. Thank you Clara. I believe that once we can see better our characteristics, we can think about them and try to improve the ones we like and try to change the ones we don't...
