FWIW, I'm not sure I agree with the assessment that people with personality disorders don't seek help because they don't think they need it. That may certainly be true for some, but by no means all.

Personality disorders are both (IMHO) the result of pain and the cause of it. I'm not sure it's true that people aren't aware of that pain and wish they could change it.

They might think that they shouldn't have to change, the world should. But isn't that really true of everyone? It's just that most people don't get told they need to change, so it doesn't come up. No one wants to hear they have to radically change to be non-personalitydisordered. I think most people would react to that with withdrawal and defensiveness.
