BBC - Health - Conditions - Personality disorder

"Someone with a personality disorder will engage in a certain behaviour pattern that usually causes more problems than it solves - if not for them, then for the people around them. This behaviour will usually be the result of a deeply held belief, often to do with the way that they view the world. Their belief in this world view is so strong that any evidence to the contrary is discounted.

"They may be aware of the problems experienced by the people around them, but are unable to make a connection between these problems and their behaviour. When they're affected by negative consequences they'll often try to find ways of coping that, because they're also based on their world view, often only create more negative outcomes.

"This set of beliefs about the world may be so integral to the person that they're neither consciously aware of them nor aware of the role they play in the difficult situations in which they find themselves.

"We don't tend to carry in our conscious awareness at all times all our most cherished beliefs - more often they form the background from which we make judgements."
