Psychosis is not a personality disorder. Psychosis is a state of mind that can be triggered by stress, drugs, and other psychiatric ailments, but is not a constant, a condition or disorder. You could also be referring to psychopathy or anti-social personality disorder, but that bears little resemblence to what you describe. What exactly is it that you're talking about?

I wasn't going to answer to this thread, but after viewing the last response I caught on that bit of info, yet I'm still treading carefully (this being an internet forum, a kind of "fan" known for its high fecal-hits index) on ultra-thin ice.
