We all have our little quirks but should our behaviour be continuously annoying, and leading to difficulties in contact with others, we might be having personality problems.
We speak of a personality disorder when we chronically display a rigid pattern of thoughts, behaviours and emotions. These may be extreme expressions of emotion, or not showing any emotion at all, we might have problems getting along with others, or be too impulsive. These patterns are inflexible and are expressed in many different situations between friends, family or at work. Personality disorders may be mild, moderate or severe, and people may have periods of “remission” where they function well.
