3. Transmission

A personality disorder evolves and takes shape over a person’s lifetime. Some data indicates if a blood relative suffers from something such as schizoid personality disorder, the likelihood is greater you may too.

Personality disorders are not directly transmitted through contact with someone who has one. The leading theory is that it may occur partly due to genetics and partly due to life experiences.
