Personality refers to the way we think and behave. This specific attribute makes of every person makes humans different from each other. Our personality is influenced by our surroundings i.e. environment, our life experiences and the characteristics inherited from our parents. When our thinking, perceptions and behaviour deviate from our normal behaviour and the expectations of culture, it takes a form of a mental disorder known as Personality disorder.

My Fit Brain therapists say that this Personality disorder affects the functioning of our brain and the impact lasts over a long time. Hence, we strongly recommend online therapy for treatment of Personality disorder.

Recognising Personality disorder

Personality disorder is not a result of a single day’s behaviour or thinking. In fact it involves a pattern of unexpected behaviour 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 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 behaviour 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 someone’s way of thinking and gradually it shapes one’s personality to behave in a particular pattern. Some of the causes may be the following:

  • Biological factors i.e. altered functioning of brain
  • Genetical factors i.e. some get it from their family
  • Environmental factors like physical, sexual or emotional assault, past traumatic experience etc.
