  • DSM-5-TR outlines various personality disorders including paranoid, schizoid, schizotypal, antisocial, borderline, histrionic, narcissistic, avoidant, dependent, obsessive-compulsive, and others.
  • The overall prevalence of personality disorders is 9-15% among U.S. adults, with sex-specific prevalence and different clusters showing varied prevalence rates.
  • Personality disorders typically emerge in adolescence or early adulthood and may not be noticed until later in adulthood, with some symptoms becoming less prominent with age.
  • Differential diagnoses for personality disorders include psychotic disorders, substance use, anxiety, depression, neurocognitive disorders, autism spectrum disorder, bipolar disorders, PTSD, and personality changes due to medical conditions.
  • Cluster A personality disorders (paranoid, schizoid, schizotypal) are characterized by distrust, detachment, and discomfort with relationships, each with specific diagnostic criteria.
  • Cluster B personality disorders (antisocial, borderline, histrionic, narcissistic) are marked by a focus on self, emotional instability, and objectification of others, each with specific diagnostic criteria.
  • Antisocial personality disorder, with a history of symptoms since age 15, is distinct from other diagnoses such as schizophrenia, mood disorders, substance use, and other personality disorders.
