Personality represents the process of learning. It takes place in reference to the environment. We do not acquire all the traits of personality all at once. The studies that were carried out by Ruth Benedict are very valuable in this regard. Studies were conducted on Zuni Indians or Zuni tribes in New Mexico, Dobu tribe of Malaysia and Arapash tribe in New Guinea etc. The studies reveal certain traits regarding the effect of culture on the personality of the members of the society.

It has been thoroughly updated to incorporate the changes in the forthcoming DSM-5.

People with disordered personalities are much more likely than mostto practice substance abuse, attempt suicide, and suffer from majoranxiety and depressive disorders. They are also more difficult totreat for mental disorders, and their chances of relapse aregreater. Clearly then, it is essential that mental healthprofessionals be able to identify and cope with personalitydisorders in their patients. Unfortunately, the task of accuratelyassessing disordered personalities based solely on nebulous,polythetic categories such as those provided in theDSMTM is akin to that of the three blind men who wereasked to describe an elephant. What is needed is a new approach toconceptualizing personality disorders based on observable behaviorsrather than inferential nosologies. In this book, Charles G.Costello lays the foundations for just such an approach.

Reculer pour mieux sauter—to retreat so as to better leapahead—is the phrase Dr. Costello uses to articulate thespirit in which this book was conceived. Stated more practically,his goal in presenting this volume is to afford psychotherapists anopportunity to step back from questionable clinical categories andredirect their attention onto the individual personality traitscommonly associated with personality disorders—to moreclearly define them, their origins, and their functionalrelationships—and in so doing, open up new avenues forresearch and provide clinicians with a surer conceptual footingupon which to base diagnoses and devise treatment strategies.

To achieve that end, Dr. Costello invited a group of leadingresearchers and clinicians in the field to share theirunderstanding of the current state of knowledge about personalitydisorders. Over the course of eleven chapters, each devoted to aseparate personality characteristic, these experts review thelatest research data and offer their professional insights into themajor personality characteristics of the personality disordered,including aggressiveness, anxiousness, emotional instability,impulsiveness, dependency, narcissism, detachment, paranoia,obsessiveness, and sensation-seeking.

Personality Characteristics of the Personality Disordered is avaluable resource for clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, andall mental health practitioners, as well as personality theoristsand researchers.
