15 Scopus citations


Millon has presented a grand and rich theory of personality disorder. Fundamental to this theory are three polarity dimensions (active-passive, pleasure-pain, and self-other) from which the personality disorders are said to be derived. This article reviews these polarity dimensions with respect to their conceptual relation with the personality disorder nomenclature, their assessment, and their empirical support.
