A, B, or C. Their division into three clusters in DSM-5 is intended to reflect this tendency, with any given personality disorder most likely to blur with other personality disorders within its cluster.
For instance, in cluster A, paranoid personality is most likely to blur with schizoid personality disorder and schizotypal personality disorder.

A person with schizoid PD is detached and aloof and prone to introspection and fantasy. A competing theory about people with schizoid PD is that they are in fact highly sensitive with a rich inner life: They experience a deep longing for intimacy, but find initiating and maintaining close relationships too difficult or distressing, and so retreat into their inner world.
Schizotypal disorder Schizotypal PD is characterized by oddities of appearance, behavior, and speech, unusual perceptual experiences, and anomalies of thinking similar to those seen in schizophrenia.

There is a pattern of intense but unstable relationships, emotional instability, outbursts of anger and violence especially in response to criticismand impulsive behavior.
Suicidal threats and acts of self-harm are common, for which reason many people with borderline PD frequently come to medical attention.
It has been suggested that borderline personality disorder often results from childhood sexual abuseand that it is more common in women, in part because women are more likely to suffer sexual abuse.
However, feminists have argued that borderline PD is more common in women, because women presenting with angry and promiscuous behavior tend to be labeled with it, whereas men presenting with similar behaviour tend instead to be labeled with antisocial PD. As they crave excitement and act on impulse or suggestion, they can place themselves at risk of accident or exploitation.
