From First Aid- schizotypal personalities exhibit eccentric appearance, odd beliefs or magical thinking, and interpersonal awkwardness. These describe the several layers of clothes, belief in psychic abilities and crystals, and poor eye contact.

A) Borderline- unstable moods with impulsivity, self-mutilation, suicidality, and a sense of emptiness, along with a greater likelihood in women B) Dependent- those with an excess need for support and low self-confidence C)Histrionic- excessively emotional, seeks attention, sexually provocative, concerned with appearance ("actor's disease") D) Narcissistic- grandiosity, entitled, lacks empathy, demands 'the best' E) Schizoid- voluntary social withdrawal, limited emotional expression, content to be on their own
