Descriptive diagnosis per American DSM-IV-TR

Paranoid personality disorder is listed in the DSM-IV-TR as 301.00 Paranoid Personality Disorder.

According to the DSM-IV-TR, this disorder is characterized by a pervasive distrust and suspicion of others such that their motives are interpreted as malevolent, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by four (or more) of the following:

   * Suspects, without sufficient basis, that others are exploiting, harming, or deceiving him or her
   * Is preoccupied with unjustified doubts about the loyalty or trustworthiness of friends or associates
   * Is reluctant to confide in others because of unwarranted fear that the information will be used maliciously against him or her
   * Reads benign remarks or events as threatening or demeaning.
   * Persistently bears grudges, i.e., is unforgiving of insults, injuries, or slights
   * Perceives attacks on his or her character or reputation that are not apparent to others and is quick to react angrily or to counterattack
   * Has recurrent suspicions, without justification, regarding fidelity of spouse or sexual partner.

The traits, behaviors and characteristics

   * Do not occur exclusively during the course of a mood disorder accompanied by psychotic features nor other psychotic disorders.
   * Are not due to the direct physiological effects of a general medical condition.
