curious to see peoples responses. how do you know if you have one? what are the signs and symptoms.

specifically. if a child has cannot see anything but an ink blot in an ink blot, does that mean they have no imagination? what does it mean if it doesn't mean that?

is distortions of self perception linked to it?
-such as seeing your face uneven in a mirror and having the erg to correct it?

what does not being able to recognize a body part mean? like say your legs?

You know that you have one when you get diagnosed by a professional.

A child can never have a personality disorder.

Personality disorders are meant to describe conditions from adults. Children can have other disorders though.

If you want to know if you have a personality disorder, there is no other way than speak to professionals. Self diagnosing doesn't work.
