Common Traits & Behaviors
Every relationship between a Personality-Disordered Individual (PDI) and a Non Personality-Disordered Individual (Non) is as unique as the DNA of the people involved. Therefore there is no formula which can predict the development of any particular relationship or situation.
Nevertheless, there are some common behavior patterns associated with personality disorders, some of which you may recognize in your own situation. Some of them are described here.
Please note that these descriptions are not intended to be used in any kind of diagnosis or evaluation. Nobody exhibits all of these behaviors. Exhibiting some of these behaviors does not necessarily mean that you have a personality disorder.
These descriptions are offered in the hope that Non-PD's who read them might recognize their own situation and discover that they are not alone.
