Mental illness in literature; Personality disorders -- Diagnosis;
A person with a personality disorder (PD) has a pervasive, long term, maladaptive way of interacting with the world (American Psychiatric Association, 1994). Costello (1996) described the lives of persons with PDs as chaotic. They are inflexible and rigid in terms of their reactions, and do not have the ability to change their maladaptive ways of interacting in society (Millon, 1981).
