Personality Disorders and their Agendas

Based on a talk from 2011 by David Mays

Antisocial: control/avoid being controlled
Borderline: be understood perfectly enough that the emptiness will end
Narcissistic: to be adored
Histrionic: be the center of attention (by being attractive/entertaining/ill)
Ocpd: follow the rules and avoid blame
Avoidant: avoid being hurt (he thought this was too much like social phobia)
Dependent: assure love and protection at any personal cost
Paranoid: stay safe in a dangerous world

He also argued that schizotypal was a variant of schizophrenia (that it should be a thought disorder, not a personality disorder, since studies have shown that it tends to turn into schizophrenia), and schizoid is more like ambulatory autism. Not sure if I agree with those or not, but the agendas for most of them seem to be fairly close (I’m the least sure about borderline, though).

Don’t they like getting boo boo’d on???? Coprophilia (from Greek κόπρος, kópros—excrement and φιλία, philía—liking, fondness), also called scatophilia or scat (Greek: σκατά, skatá-feces), is the paraphilia involving sexual arousal and pleasure from feces. In the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), published by the American Psychiatric Association, it is classified under 302.89 – Paraphilia NOS (Not Otherwise Specified) and has no diagnostic criteria other than a general statement about paraphilias that says “the diagnosis is made if the behavior, sexual urges, or fantasies cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning”. Furthermore, the DSM-IV-TR notes, “Fantasies, behaviors, or objects are paraphilic only when they lead to clinically significant distress or impairment (e.g. are obligatory, result in sexual dysfunction, require participation of nonconsenting individuals, lead to legal complications, interfere with social relationships)”. #wtff #whitepeoplebelike #skincolor #disorder #confederatestatesofamerica #wtfnews
