They are characterized by extreme variations between the way one person thinks and acts compared to others. Personality disorders typically develop in adolescence or early adulthood and manifests itself in individuals through long-lasting patterns of impulsive and destructive behavior, self-image issues, chronic feelings of emptiness or loneliness, volatile relationships, and frequent emotional outbursts or episodes of intense anger.
