Abstract

PERSONALITY AND PSYCHOPATHOLOGY CAN RELATE TO ONE ANOTHER IN THREE DIFFERENT WAYS: personality and psychopathology can influence the presentation or appearance of one another (pathoplastic relationships); they can share a common, underlying etiology (spectrum relationships); and they can have a causal role in the development or etiology of one another. Each of these possible forms of inter-relationship is considered in this paper.

KEYWORDS:

Personality; co-occurrence; comorbidity; pathoplastic; psychopathology; spectrum
