Schizoid personality disorder. Essential features of schizoid personality disorder is a detachment from social relationships, a restricted range of emotions, lack of warmth, and an indifference to others opinions of them. Because of these traits, schizoids typically do not seek treatment and probably lack the motivation to benefit from psychotherapy.
A person with borderline personality disorder is apt to regress if they perceive therapy is going well as a means of sabotaging a goal. Those with bpd may develop patterns of undermining successes just at the moment they may be realized. Narcissistic personality disorder is marked by grandiose, egotistical, and arrogant behaviors. The narcissist would love therapy because it would allow him to be the center of attention! A person with dependent personality disorder would display dependent behaviors such as clinging, inability to make decisions without excessive advice seeking from others, and so on. This person would benefit a great deal from therapy, although the therapists job would be very difficult. Histrionics are typically over-dramatic and enjoy calling attention to themselves. They would not be interested in traditional psychoanalysis, but might benefit from confidence and esteem building.
