> ////Well, personally, I guess I think the same could be said about a lot of Schizophrenics, and those with Bipolar Mood Disorder............and what about the Narcissists and those with Anti Social Personality Disorder?

No, I wouldn't say so. Schizophrenia used to be a "wastebasket diagnosis," but today it's been defined much more clearly and is better understood. Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder are both conditions that are considered to be responsive to medication.

I suspect that antisocial personality disorder is overdiagnosed, especially in prison populations. An important criterion that must be met for a diagnosis of antisocial PD to be made and which is probably often glossed over is: "evidence of Conduct Disorder with onset before age 15 years."

Narcissistic personality disorder, unlike borderline, isn't an especially trendy diagnosis.
