The causes of personality disorders include biological and genetic factors, pathological and physiological factors, and psychological and social factors.

1.Biological and genetic factors: Studies have suggested that genetics plays a role in the development of personality disorders. Family members of individuals with personality disorders are more likely to have personality disorders themselves, with a higher incidence rate the closer the blood relationship. Even if an adopted child is separated from their birth parents at a very young age, they are still more likely to have a personality disorder if their birth parents have one.

2.Pathological and physiological factors: Personality-disordered individuals may have underdeveloped amygdala, which is responsible for processing emotional responses in the brain. This can lead to emotional dysregulation and difficulties in processing social cues. People with personality disorders also tend to have lower levels of anxiety and self-control, as well as lower skin conductance responses to static and stressful stimuli.

3.Psychological and social factors: Childhood trauma, such as maternal deprivation or parents' divorce, can increase the risk of developing personality disorders, especially antisocial personality disorder. Unhealthy parenting during childhood can also contribute to the development of personality disorders.

If someone around you shows these symptoms, it is recommended to seek medical attention or consult a professional.
