Personality disorders are defined by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) as “an enduring pattern of inner experience and behavior that deviates markedly from the expectations of the culture of the individual who exhibits it”.

These inflexible and pervasive mental conditions make the things worse for patients in many situations.these patterns are consistent with the ego integrity of the individual and therefore, perceived to be appropriate by that individual. The onset of these symptoms of altered behavior can typically be traced back to late adolescence and the beginning of adult-hood
