The paper then turns to ten defined types of personality disorders and their signs and symptoms. Similar characteristics present in all personality disorder sufferers are then identified.

The paper advises that in these cases, one must gently help the victim while taking care not to become a victim oneself.

From the Paper:

"Where do mood and personality disorders come from? Why do some people suffer from them, while others are never affected? What is the difference between a "mood disorder" and a "personality disorder?" What are some examples of each, and what are their symptoms? Mental disorders are experienced by just about 44 million Americans annually (MD2). They are among the most common conditions attacking the health of our country today. Even so, the average person knows very little about them."
