    How can these disorders be accurately “quantified” when they are based on such subjective criteria? If someone says that a certain percentage of the population has cancer or diabetes, that makes sense. But emotional problems are very different; they depends on a person’s state of mind down to the day and minute, as well as how the “diagnoser”-observer interprets their behaviors and symptoms in the cultural setting they are in.
    I think all of these pathologies would be better expressed on a continuum of severity fading into normality, rather than using the unrealistic notion that a certain percentage of people “have” them, and “normals” don’t have htem.

      I don’t disagree with you, but my old pdoc went by this Cluster business when diagnosing me. Sometimes I am confused how they can compartmentalize people in boxes and that’s their “cluster”, where maybe all of the personality traits don’t necessarily match up. Perhaps it’s easier? Thanks for commenting.
