Recognising Personality Disorder
A personality disorder is not a result of a single dayâ€™s behavior or thinking. In fact, it involves a pattern of unexpected behavior or activities or thinking. This pattern subsists for a long time and the disorder becomes inflexible if not treated well in time. The unusual pattern starts in early adulthood and gradually causes problems in the functioning of the patient. The pattern can be easily observed in any of the two areas as mentioned below:
- Emotional response
- Thinking about others and own self
- Inability to control own behavior or actions
- Way of relating oneself to others
Causes of Personality Disorder
Though the exact causes of this mental illness are still unknown, studies say that the condition of mental disorder is a result of many factors that put a deep impact on someoneâ€™s way of thinking, and gradually it shapes oneâ€™s personality to behave in a particular pattern. Some of the causes may be the following:
- Biological factors i.e. altered functioning of the brain
- Genetical factors i.e. some get it from their family
- Environmental factors like physical, sexual or emotional assault, past traumatic experience, etc.
