How do you determine if a symptom, throwing one out there-procrastination - is an effect from OCD, ADD, or a result of self-sabotage? Unconscious motivations for self sabatoge resulting from low self worth, such as not deserving to suceed in something...or an underlying dependency - patterns of feeling incapable of handling things, or doing them on your own, so it gets in the way of doing. Stuff "learned" by interacting with your parents as your self/personality is being formed...learned low self worth. But the underlying emotions behind the behaviors are often repressed.

The emotions repressed from way back when....meanwhile, we've formed unhealthy coping patterns during our childhood that extend through adulthood (an example would be repression). The repressed stuff emerges in indirect ways-the example here, being self sabatoge. The feelings are there-the low self worth-but if you had repressed it you would be unaware of the underlying motivations for the behavior and treat only the symptom of procrastination with medications as opposed to finding the emotions that cause the behavior and addressing them with the goal of change. Repression can be useful in some cases, but also very unhealthy. Just my opinons.

In my case, self-introspection with psychotherapy is starting to bring some things to the surface. The procrastination is a hypothetical example, though.

I answered your question with a question..but to directly answer your question below - I have no clue!

Would you say that most personality disorders are psychogenic or biogenic?
