Author Note:I don't think Schizoid personality is a valid disorder (read), some of the smartest people in history were schizoid because they occupied a remote end of the intelligence bell curve. Schizotypal personality can encompass highly original thinkers as well as totally insane people so I think it's a flawed type. I think the remaining eight disorders are generally valid.
Eccentric Personality Disorders: Paranoid, Schizoid, Schizotypal.
Individuals with these disorders often appear odd or peculiar.
1. Paranoid Personality Disorder - individual generally tends to interpret the actions of others as threatening.
2. Schizoid Personality Disorder - individual generally detached from social relationships, and shows a narrow range of emotional expression in various social settings.
3. Schizotypal Personality Disorder - individual is uncomfortable in close relationships, has thought or perceptual distortions, and peculiarities of behavior.
Dramatic Personality Disorders: Antisocial, Borderline, Histrionic, and Narcissistic
Individuals with these disorders have intense, unstable emotions, distorted self-perception, and/or behavioral impulsiveness.
1.Antisocial Personality Disorder - individual shows a pervasive disregard for, and violation of, the rights of others.
2.Borderline Personality Disorder - individual shows a generalized pattern of instability in interpersonal relationships, self-image, and observable emotions, and significant impulsiveness.
3. Histrionic Personality Disorder - individual often displays excessive emotionality and attention seeking in various contexts. They tend to overreact to other people, and are often perceived as shallow and self-centered.
4.Narcissistic Personality Disorder - individual has a grandiose view of themselves, a need for admiration, and a lack of empathy that begins by early adulthood and is present in various situations. These individuals are very demanding in their relationships.
Anxious Personality Disorders: Avoidant, Dependent, Obsessive-Compulsive
Individuals with these disorders often appear anxious or fearful.
1.Avoidant Personality Disorder - individual is socially inhibited, feels inadequate, and is oversensitive to criticism
2.Dependent Personality Disorder - individual shows an extreme need to be taken care of that leads to fears of separation, and passive and clinging behavior.
3.Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder - individual is preoccupied with orderliness, perfectionism, and control at the expense of flexibility, openness, and efficiency.
i'm odd and peculiar. not surprising in the least. i should also point out at this juncture that i have a red nose and exams in 2 days.
the rest of the crazy bunch - yes, all of you. i want you to break down the crazy and let me know what's what by taking this: http://similarminds.com/personality_tests.html.
oh, and i should mention that i ran across this on shreena's blog, who is a follower. i'm not quite sure why she is (because almost nobody reads this blog, including easily-bored I), but much appreciated neverthless. (i hope it wasn't an accident =D). also, i hereby publicly confess my love for chick flicks and romance. general angry emo appearance of this blog aside, there is a girly girl here, playing dress-up, putting on make-up, and smudging said make-up when there's a sad scene in a movie on. i cook, bake, sing, dance, do crafts, giggle, and thoroughly and enjoy cutting people's hair. but that could just be the scissors, knives, and general abundance of sharp edges. shhh.
alright, that's enough now.
currently: sniffling, surrounded by a mound of used tissues.
listening: fez / being born - u2, because i'm giving them a second chance, and only for you.
ps: and yes, dots are there because i couldn't fix the damn formatting. call me technologically incompetent, but it serves the purpose.
