Dating a woman with borderline personality disorder
People with schizotypal personality disorder are socially withdrawn and emotionally detached.
In addition, they have odd ways of thinking, perceiving, and communicating similar to those of people with schizophrenia (see Schizophrenia).
In the new classification that is being developed, there are no clusters and only six types: schizotypal, borderline, antisocial, narcissistic, avoidant, and obsessive-compulsive.
The types that are being omitted are schizoid, paranoid, histrionic, and dependent.
Tactics Manipulators Use If you’re concerned that you’re being manipulated, examine the tactics the other person is using.
The very nature of manipulation makes it challenging to know when you’re being manipulated.
Manipulators attempt to conceal their motives and feelings, and their targets—who often struggle to sustain an honest, open, and manipulation-free relationship—may have to do some detective work to determine whether they’re being played. Manipulation is the process of trying to change another person’s feelings, beliefs, or behaviors through indirect tactics.
Vulnerable narcissists (VNs) tend to be more emotionally sensitive.
They feel helpless, anxious and victimized when people don't treat them like royalty.
Mental health professionals use the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (the DSM ) to diagnose mental disorders.
