Entering the stage are the difficulties and controversies in defining personality and its disorders and the attempts by evolutionary psychologists to provide explanations on how we have adapted, psychologically, to resolve recurrent conflicts in our environment. The most commonly used definition of personality nowadays is: an enduring pattern of thoughts, feelings, interactions and behaviors that make us the individuals that we are. (Gask, Evans & Kessler, 2013).
