This study examined associations between dimensional representations of DSM-IV personality disorders and life-success in a community sample of 304 men at age 48. Measures included a standardized social interview and the SCID-II for assessment of personality disorders. The identified indicators of life-success were factor-analyzed resulting in two moderately correlated components representing "status and wealth" and "successful intimate relationships."

Conceptualizing personality disorders from a general model of personality functioning: antisocial personality disorder and the five‐factor model
Research suggests that personality disorders (PDs) can be conceptualized as constellations of traits from a general model of personality functioning. This research examined the ability of the
Three-pronged assessment and diagnosis of personality disorder and its consequences: personality functioning, pathological traits, and psychosocial disability.
TLDR
This work examined the structures of functioning (psychosocial disability and personality) and personality traits, first independently, then jointly, and investigated interrelations among these constructs using multiple self-report measures of each domain in a mixed community-patient sample.
Interpersonal Dysfunction in Personality Disorders: A Meta-Analytic Review
TLDR
A quantitative synthesis of the existing empirical research on associations between personality disorders and interpersonal functioning, defined using the interpersonal circumplex model, indicated that each personality disorder showed a distinct profile of interpersonal style consistent with its characteristic pattern of symptomatic dysfunction.
Personality and Life Events in a Personality Disorder Sample
TLDR
Comparisons of each PD group to a control group of individuals with a major depressive disorder indicated that the FFM traits operated similarly across clinical samples with and without PD.
Conscientiousness and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder.
TLDR
The findings support the view that OCPD does represent a maladaptive variant of normal-range conscientiousness, and differences within the conscientiousness instruments such that those designed to assess general personality functioning had small to medium relationships with OCPD, but those assessing more mal Adaptive variants obtained large effect sizes.
The Biologically-Based Bias of Personality Disorder Diagnosis
TLDR
The General Criteria for Personality Disorder (GCPD) rests on clinical assumptions of pathology which do not appear to equate to impairments in evolutionarily relevant life outcomes, and personality disorder diagnosis can be recognized as relativistic.
Seven basic dimensions of personality pathology and their clinical consequences: Are all personalities equally harmful?
TLDR
The findings suggest that the most relevant dimensions of personality pathology are associated with very different clinical consequences and levels of harmfulness.
The Convergent and Concurrent Validity of Trait-Based Prototype Assessment of Personality Disorder Categories in Homeless Persons
TLDR
Investigation of the convergence of FFM PD prototypes with interview-assigned PD diagnoses in a sample of 99 homeless individuals indicated that diagnostic agreement between these methods was generally low but consistent with the agreement previously observed between explicit PD measures.
