In brief: Interaction patterns

Personality disorders (pd): narcissistic, borderline, histrionic, anti-social, and 6 others are life long and a specific patterns of behavior and interacting with people and situations that lead to distress and impaired functioning.
Pd diagnoses can only be used after adolescence, although the first symptoms begin in the teen years. Pds may be associated with severe, unresolved childhood trauma.
