Unlike people with anxiety disorders, who know they have a problem but are unable to control it, people with personality disorders often are not aware that they have a problem and do not believe they have anything to control.
Because they often do not believe they have a disorder, people with personality disorders often do not seek treatment.
The inflexibility of their personality can cause great distress, and can interfere with many areas of life, including social and work functioning.
Our personality is constructed by deeply ingrained patterns of behaviour and thoughts, and is essentially the way in which we relate to, perceive and think about the world and ourselves.Personality traits are how we exhibit our personality in a wide range of social and personal contexts.Many people will exhibit a personality that is considered 'normal' and is harmonious with expectations of society.So I've been involved with someone- who I think may have SPD- for about 3 years, but up until someone suggested it to me, it never occurred to me.
As I read up about it I see that more and more a lot of the traits fit him to one degree or another and I was looking for some advice on how to deal with it and also to hear anyone else's opinion as to if they think I am correct.He's always been distant and had a difficult time showing emotion- I've always taken it personal and thought that he didn't want to spend time with me or that I was doing something wrong.
