Am J Psychiatry. 1986 Nov;143(11):1473-4.

The internal consistency and factorial structure of behaviors judged to be associated with DSM-III personality disorders.

Most sets of criteria were internally consistent, but items relating to different disorders showed substantial intercorrelations. Factor analysis identified specific traits rather than actual disorders.
