In this chapter, you will read about specific personality disorders. For each, try to think of examples of how culture, gender, or age might influence whether a person's behavior is seen as evidence of a disorder. For example, are persons from low socioeconomic groups likely to be seen by others as having particular disorders? How does this correspond to the topic of stereotypes and prejudice? How does this fit with the use of "profiles" by police and other law enforcement agencies?
