I think that diagnosis has become so stigmatized that it has become useless or worse harmful. There are so many personality characteristics, each on their own continuums.
hey, I get it, a cluster of symptoms, dysfunctional ways of coping, but shouldn't we focus on those things instead.

I'm not responding to anyone here, my frustration relates to my overall experience and impression of that term. I see the term over-used to the point that it is nothing more than a sophisticated insult with little sophisticated understanding to back it up.

Sure, there are people whose symptoms are glaring examples of what is put forth in DSM-IV, but most aren't.

my two cents,
sid
