INTERRELATIONSHIP OF PERSONALITY DISORDERS: THEORETICAL FORMULATIONS AND ANECDOTAL EVIDENCE
Abstract:This article attempts to define the interrelationship of personality disorders. Relationships both between and among the three major groupings of DSM-III are discussed. It is proposed that three personality disorders, namely passive aggressive, avoidant, and borderline are impure and serve as bridges between the three major DSM-111 groupings. Placement within the three groupings is discussed with antisocial, compulsive and schizoid as being the essence of the three categories. Anecdotal evidence from previous psychometric research is provided.
