Normal personality

There is no fixed dividing line between the normal and the disordered personality. Many of the personality traits mentioned above are disadvantageous only if present to extremes. Mild degrees may carry benefits in the right setting; for example, an anankastic personality may do well as a librarian, and a histrionic personality in the entertainment world. Personality disorder should be diagnosed only if the personality traits consistently impair well-being, personal relationships, or work, or lead to dependence on drugs or alcohol.
