Semantic Type: Mental or Behavioral Dysfunction

NCIt Definition: A diverse category of psychiatric disorders characterized by behavior that deviates markedly from the expectations of the individual's culture; this pattern of deviation is pervasive and inflexible and is stable over time. The behavioral pattern negatively interferes with relationships and work.

MEDLINEPLUS Definition: 

Personality disorders are a group of mental illnesses. They involve long-term patterns of thoughts and behaviors that are unhealthy and inflexible. The behaviors cause serious problems with relationships and work. People with personality disorders have trouble dealing with everyday stresses and problems. They often have stormy relationships with other people.

The cause of personality disorders is unknown. However, genes and childhood experiences may play a role.

The symptoms of each personality disorder are different. They can mild or severe. People with personality disorders may have trouble realizing that they have a problem. To them, their thoughts are normal, and they often blame others for their problems. They may try to get help because of their problems with relationships and work. Treatment usually includes talk therapy and sometimes medicine.

HPO Definition: An abnormality of mental functioning affecting the personality and behavioural tendencies of an individual and characterized by a rigid and unhealthy pattern of thinking and behavior. The definition of a personal disorder implies that the abnormality is not the result of damage or insult to the brain or from another psychiatric disorder. [HPO:probinson]

CSP Definition: when normal personality traits become inflexible and maladaptive, causing subjective distress or impaired social functioning, they can be considered disorders.

MSH Definition: A major deviation from normal patterns of behavior.
