Negative aspects of Paras
I’ve thought about the negative aspects a Para could have, since I haven’t seen it yet, here are a few suggestions:
– Narcissism shows, in a variety of areas of life, a grandiose sense of self and need for admiration, along with a lack of empathy. It may involve arrogant behavior, exploitativeness, and a belief that one deserves special treatment. Though defined differently, it is related to the personality trait of narcissism.
– Psychopathy captures a lack of empathy, remorse, and impulse control, along with other specific facets. Someone who is highly psychopathic may tend to hurt others without feeling bad or taking responsibility.
– Machiavellianism refers to a person’s tendency to treat others in a calculating way, including using manipulation in order to achieve goals.
– Antisocial is a pattern of disregard for others’ rights, which can show up in behaviors such as repeated criminal activity, fighting, or lying, a tendency to act impulsively and failure to plan ahead, and a lack of remorse. Psychopathy and Sociopathy, while not defined in exactly the same way, are related personality concepts.
– Borderline is defined by instability in a person’s relationships, sense of self, and emotional state, as well as impulsivity, such as in risky sexual behavior or drug use. People with this disorder may have a history of troubled relationships and swing between extreme positive and negative views of other people.
– Histrionic is marked by excessive attention-seeking and emotional expression. This may involve inappropriate, provocative behavior, theatricality, and a discomfort with not being the focus of attention.
– Schizoid Personality Disorder is a pattern of detachment from social relationships in general and limited emotional expression in social settings. It may involve a lack of desire for close relationships, an overwhelming preference for solitude, or a lack of apparent concern about others’ praise or criticism.
– Paranoid Personality Disorder involves a distrust of other people in various areas of one’s life. Potential signs include irrational suspicions that one is being manipulated by others, that others are untrustworthy, or that others are communicating hidden threats or insults.
– Avoidant Personality Disorder tends to resist getting close to other people, which can include romantic partners and fears the negative evaluations of others. The potential for rejection or embarrassment and perceived inadequacy may be frequent concerns.
– Dependent Personality Disorder involves an excessive need to be taken care of by others—to have others make decisions or assume responsibility, for example—that leads to fear of separation. Someone with this disorder may struggle to disagree with a partner or act in a submissive way so as not to jeopardize a relationship.
– Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder is marked by perfectionism and a demand for order and control, which can manifest in a counterproductive fixation on rules and details and a devotion to work that crowds out other parts of one’s life. It is distinct from obsessive-compulsive disorder, which is not a personality disorder.
It would bring a lot of storytelling to Paralives.
