What is Paranoid Personality Disorder?

January 23, 2020

Paranoid Personality Disorder is something I imagined I had in college, since I didn’t know whom to trust from being abused by my roommates. Paranoid people on this level suffer from unrelenting suspicion of others, because they really live by the X-Files mantra, “Trust No One.” It is more common in men rather than women but is influenced by both the biology of a sufferer and psychological criteria. They consistently believe that other people are out to get them even if there is proof to the contrary. They read too much meaning into casual remarks or glances. They become controlling and jealous to avoid being betrayed. They also have immense difficulty relaxing while they cannot see their role in problematic situations since they feel they are always right.
