A continuum model of personality disorder.

Author information

  • 1State Hospital, Scotland, UK.


Certain types of personality may show predisposition to mental illness, and it has been proposed that most categories of personality disorder could be relegated to the neuroses and psychoses. A continuum model of personality disorder is outlined and tested with a psychiatric sample of 10 inpatients and 10 outpatients ages 19 to 63 years, using the Personality Assessment Schedule. Both the prevalence and severity of personality disorders appear to support a continuum model of personality.
