For ordinary people, usually in rural areas, do not understand personality disorders, they think that personality disorders are always synonymous with stigma and confusion. In fact, their view of psychologists is that they are only people who do not necessarily understand the personality disorder experienced by a person, so it is not surprising that they prefer to go to a traditional healer to treat mental illness. The common people living in the countryside would feel humiliated if the psychologist told them about someone's abnormal character.
These things were told by my classmate when he was doing a practical assignment in a village. I've never experienced it. Although many of them do not believe in a personality disorder, in fact, some citizens do have a personality disorder. Many causes of personality disorders are suffered by a person, the most common is a traumatic experience.
Talking about a person's personality disorder, there must be someone who asks, what factors cause someone to have a personality disorder? From a book in the campus library, I found a good book to answer this question. The book entitled 'Personality Disorder Threshold Diagnosis & Comprehensive Treatment' written by 'Sylvia Detri' and published in 2015, explains that there are five factors that cause personality disorders:
Previously, many people believed that personality disorders were just lazy or evil people, but researchers tried to find out the causes behind personality disorders, then they began to identify genetic factors that might occur. Some researchers have identified a faulty gene in the genetic chain of people with obsessive-compulsive disorder. Several other researchers are also looking into the relationship between genetics and anxiety, fear, and anger.
A person's bad experience is very influential in the formation of a person's personality disorder. An example is a borderline personality disorder, usually, this personality is formed from childhood sexual trauma, and this must be treated immediately.
In one study, someone who was verbally abused more than three times as a child was at risk of developing obsessive-compulsive, borderline, or paranoid personality disorder when they were adults. So, verbal violence can be the cause of a person's personality disorder. For those of you who have become mothers or fathers, please don't be too hard in educating children.
Personality researchers call High Reactivity because the formation of a timid, shy, or even anxious personality can be caused by sensitivity to sound, light, or other stimuli that play a role in the formation of the personality.
It seems we all know that the people we are closely related to can be a negative influence on a person, especially a child. Anyone can be a negative influence on someone, be it a teacher, relative, or friend, even ourselves can be someone's bad influence.
Those were some brief explanations that we can know about What Causes Personality Disorders. Hopefully, this article is useful and hopefully, our lives are always healthy, both physically and psychologically. thank you for reading
