Abstract

We welcome Hopwood’s timely analysis and fully concur with his emphasis on interpersonal dynamics as central to personality development. We discuss four areas of agreement: the advantages of a dimensional approach, the limitations of a trait approach, the need to shift from a categorical to a dimensional approach, and the centrality of interpersonal dynamics. We place even greater emphasis on the interpersonal, arguing personality and PD is largely in the eye of the beholder: the stability of personality and rigidity of PD are relational phenomena.
