Sigmund Freud posits that human beings lie in the continuum of relatively healthy (normal) and unhealthy (neurotic) in their psychological and mental disposition. Human beings are not made to be perfect. Everyone has mental disorders to a certain degree. Being imperfect we must be able to accept our mental disorders and take actions to overcome them. Knowing our mental disorder characteristics of our personality helps us to seek help and treatment. Being aware of others mental disorders characteristics enables us to understand others better and assist us to cope better with social situations and relationships with other people. Bernard A.T.Tan
