When one's personality traits and/or behavior become rigid and consistently deviate from the expectations of one's society, consistently blunt one's social life and ability to function appropriately in society. Usually manifested before the age of 15 and persisting into adulthood.
Often the result of abusive or otherwise unstable home environments in childhood, as well as from heavy stress, although genetic predisposition may also play a part.

The three main clusters of personality disorders are:
A (odd types)
*paranoid personality disorder (irrationally suspicious and mistrustful)
*schizoid personality disorder (uninterested in socializing or pleasure)
*schizotypal personality disorder (odd behavior/odd thoughts)
B (dramatic types)
*antisocial personality disorder (disregard for laws and for the rights of others)
*histrionic personality disorder (attention-seeking exhibitionist)
*borderline personality disorder (extreme "black and white" thinking and emotional instability)
*narcissistic personality disorder (grandiose and lacking empathy)
C (anxious types)
*avoidant personality disorder (shy, insecure, and highly sensitive)
*dependent personality disorder (psychological dependence on others)
*obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (rigid conformity to rules, morality, and orderliness)
"Insanity can be cured. Personality disorders are so inextricably entwined with the heart and mind and soul that it is well-nigh impossible to excise them."

-Ann Rule, "Small Sacrifices" page 442

It is preferable to be crazy, since "crazy" can be treated; the conscience can't grow back for the sociopath (antisocial personality), the histrionic won't give up the limelight, the narcissist won't leave the mirror, and the borderline personality mainly thinks in black and white terms.
