Newman has a lot of problems. He is constantly in conflict with his neighbor and the neighbor’s friends. This is important because Newman does not have many close friends; he​ just does not trust people. Newman’s most troubling behavior is when he threatens to harm himself in order to get sympathy and make people do what he wants. He has even threatened to jump off the roof to get an acquaintance to pay attention to him.

From this behavior and what you know of the DSM-V, how might a qualified professional diagnose Newman?​


Narcissistic personality disorder.




Bipolar disorder.


Borderline personality disorder.


Histrionic personality disorder.
