Sam & Bunny’s “Call The Shrink” online radio program for
Friday, May 1st (8-10 PM ET) will focus on:
Personality Disorders and World Leaders
Those who seek power and adulation of the masses are frequently the very people who should not be leaders. History is filled with examples of power hungry mad men who lead their nations into ruin.
We will examine the personality traits we see in ordinary people as well as in world leaders, and discuss Personality Disorders in general.
We could all have a tendency toward a Personality Disorder.
Personality disorders are unique in that they are exaggerations of traits we might all have. Example: if I carefully pack and plan for a trip including selecting which underwear I will wear every day and color coordinate my ties and socks, I would not be accurately diagnosed as having an obsessive compulsive disorder. The traits observed must result in a dysfunctional impediment to carry a DSM code. If I was so careful about packing that I missed my flight (dysfunction) then perhaps a diagnostic referral would be in order. So, it is completely possible to exhibit many of the traits of a personality disorder without meeting the diagnostic criteria.
