It is of the plain conclusions of education in psychiatry that no psychiatric evaluation is complete, until an understanding of the patient's personality together with its life-long challenges, development, and growth is acquired. However, guides of evaluating personality and diagnosing personality disorders are still on the way to become more and more practical. The current approach for personality disorders is based on syndrome-based classifications, mainly the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and the International Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD). The previous classification for personality disorders posed certain gaps and inconveniences; therefore, a reclassification of personality disorders was performed in the 11th revision of ICD. The current perspective article discusses the trend of personality disorders since its first introduction in psychiatry until its recent reclassification in ICD-11.
