Trust is the emotion to believe or hook up wealth without any doubt and is central to the relationship between people. In these relationships which could be intermediate or medical, trust has a huge role in both preventing misdiagnosis and carrying out the treatment process salutiferously. However, in some circumstances where trust betrayal may occur, this sort of shake can cause a disease named "Paranoid Personality Disorder" if it becomes a psychological problem more and more. Paranoid Personality Disorder is a mental health condition marked by a pattern of distrust and suspicion of others without adequate reason to be suspicious. [1] Indeed, the research is neglected based on the prevalence in the community and this trouble makes it harder to write a comprehensive essay about this topic due to a lack of research that the disorder is the cardinal issue of it, so this essay's main purpose is to correct false facts people have and form a frame about this disorder by using the collected data before.


Even though this disorder's symptoms were stated clearly in various sources, it is obvious that there are still lots of deficiencies. Moreover, because this information involves imperfect, even wrong, they were greatly criticized by psychologists and biologists. Startlingly, a symptom of this disorder considered as "inconvenient" and "unusual" is extreme normality, so very normal reactions toward unusual incidents could be regarded as a symptom. Besides this, as long as it is predicted on longitudinal data, any discordant emotion, notion, and behavior can be shown as one symptom. Actually, we must mention that the main point of this and these types of disorders' symptoms are relevant to their exposure time. In an experiment conducted with 324 students, 153 of them were seen to exhibit oversuspicious. However, the experts in America noticed that less than half of 153 students grappled with Paranoid Personality Disorder. [2] Thus, we try to say that some temporal stress samples may occur, but not always certain that it is a symptom of Paranoid Personality Disorder.

There are lots of different diseases emerging from these reasons, but the most frequent one is exactly comorbid disorders, it is divided into various groups:

  • Social Anxiety: Paranoid Personality Disorder cases mostly start with anxiety complaints, then the underlying paranoid main factors will reveal associated with the intensity of incidents people witnessed.

  • Depression: The system between paranoid thinking and mood is about an instinct that persecution by others is in some way deserved and necessary.

  • Delusional Disorder: Delusion is a belief based on a misinterpretation of reality despite the presence of clear contradictory information. [4]
