What causes personality disorders?

Personality forms during childhood, shaped through an interaction of two factors:
Genetic tendencies - This aspects of your personality passed on to you by your parents eg shyness

Environment factors -- This is the surroundings you grew up in, events that occurred, and relationships with family members and others. It includes such things as the type of parenting you had, whether loving or abusive.
Personality disorders are thought to be caused by a combination of these genetic and environmental influences. You may have a genetic vulnerability to developing a personality disorder and your life situation may trigger the actual development of a personality disorder.
