Abstract

In Part II of this article we propose a model for classification of normal and deviant personality types. First, we outline a matrix that classifies normal and deviant behaviors by combining three levels of functioning (normal, neurotic, and borderline) with specific long term behavior types. Second, we describe in some detail eight discrete syndromes that meet criteria for PDs presented in Part I of the article (Vol. 47, No. 4, pp. 558- 571, this Journal).
