Video about Paranoid Personality

People with paranoid personality disorder are characterized by having a pattern of widespread distrust, especially distrust of others. You will often believe that other people's motives are suspicious or malicious.

People with this disorder they believe that others want to take advantage of them, cheat them or even harm them, even when there is no evidence to support this theory.

People with paranoid personality disorder often have problems with both social and family relationships. Their excessive distrust and hostility usually turn into recurring complaints or an attitude of silence, apparently hostile. Because they are hypervigilant in case there are "potential threats", they can act in an excessively cautious, reserved or strange way, and seem to be "cold" people without feelings.

Although they may seem objective, rational and not very emotional, they most often show a range of labile affection, with a predominance of hostile, stubborn and sarcastic expressions. Its combative and suspicious nature can provoke an aggressive response in others, which then serves to confirm their original expectations.

Because they don't feel confident in others, they have a excessive need to be self-sufficient and a strong sense of autonomy. They also need to have a high degree of control over those around them. They are often rigid, critical of others and unable to collaborate, and have great difficulty accepting criticism.
