A personality disorder is a psychiatric disorder that causes a person to act differently than the social norm and can cause serious problems with socializing or even day-to-day skills. For example, with dissociative identity disorder, or multiple personality disorder, a person has no connection with their thoughts, memories, and actions, and may be torn between two distinct personalities that control him or her.
