Personality disorder

Personality disorders (PD) are a class of mental disorders characterized by enduring maladaptive patterns of behavior, cognition, and inner experience, exhibited across many contexts and deviating from those accepted by the individual's culture. These patterns develop early, are inflexible, and are associated with significant distress or disability. The definitions may vary somewhat, according to source. Official criteria for diagnosing personality disorders are listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) and the fifth chapter of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD), which are the world's two most dominant diagnostic systems.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder

Coming from the myth of Narcissus, who is a beautiful young man who fell in love with his own reflection. Narcissists seek self-importance, and attention. They lack care for others emotions, and feel as though they are the greatest thing to mankind. Others may describe narcissists as conceited, selfish, insensitive, and controlling. Don't be a narcissist (:

Fears are "an unpleasant often strong emotion caused by anticipation or awareness of danger" (Merriam-Webster Dictionary). Almost all fears are irrational and are merely emotional imbalances within the brain. I have this particular fear and let me tell you, it is quite unpleasant.
