Many individuals who dish out emotional abuse or who physically and verbally assault others with alarming regularity tend to suffer from comorbid personality disorder symptoms — also known as comorbid conditions or affectations.
The term co-morbid refers to having more than one personality disorder affecting a person’s psychology.
People with one personality disorder proclivity are predictable in specific ways; if they show signs of behaving like people with more than one disorder, their toxic thinking and social behaviors tend to be overt and extreme (even if they typically engage in abusing others the most when and if there are no witnesses other than the victim to their behaviors).
Learning how to spot people with comorbid personality disorders is likely to be the next great mental health care challenge of the coming centuries. Both nature and nurture must be taken into account with regard to forensic psychology.
