    Default Oldham Styles, Personality Disorders, and Big Five

    just wanted to post about the Oldham styles, which i didn't know much about until i started reading more about them recently. the Oldham types are derived from personality & mood disorders as described in the DSM; that is, Oldham personality styles are non-pathological, non-extreme categories of personality traits and behaviors, while disorders are the corresponding extreme, pathological manifestations of these categories. source: http://psyed.org/r/pers/pt/

    correspondence chart between Oldham, MBTI/Keirsey, Enneagram, and disorders: http://psyed.org/r/pers/pt/correspondence.html

    the Oldham types are listed below with their corresponding disorders and Big Five dimensions, according to the site linked above - leaving out Enneagram and MBTI, since those are probably much more debatable/questionable, and because DSM-recognized disorders and Big Five are comparatively well-researched and well-known. links are provided to relevant descriptions and Wikipedia articles.

    I suppose I would be closest to Sensitive or Idiosyncratic or Solitary.

    I don't know my Oldham type. The last time I took the test, I had about 6 or 7 styles I scored high in.

    with Oldham, i *think* you can be described by more than one type, since it's not like socionics. if you want to find your style/s, one way may be to think about the personality/mood disorders that you tend to display traits of (or even have a full-blown diagnosis of), and look at the associated type/s and within that cluster.


    Cluster A (Eccentric personality disorders)
    Associated with Oldham: Vigilant, Solitary, Idiosyncratic

    Cluster B (Dramatic personality disorders)
    Associated with Oldham: Adventurous, Mercurial, Dramatic, Self-Confident, Inventive

    Cluster C (Anxious personality disorders)
    Associated with Oldham: Sensitive, Devoted, Conscientious

    Other personality disorders (Sadistic, Self-defeating, Passive-aggressive)
    Associated with Oldham: Aggressive, Self-Sacrificing, Leisurely

    Mood disorders (Depressive, Cyclothymic)
    Associated with Oldham: Serious, Artistic


    this makes sense for me anyway, because certain behavioral traits i have are associated with Cluster C/Anxious, and i'm probably some combination of Oldham Sensitive and Conscientious.

    I see these are all High Neuroticism (i.e. if you are trying to find which disorder fits you best, ignore the first column).

    Sensitive / Avoidant fits me based on Big Five traits alone (and in general also), then maybe Idiosyncratic / Schizotypal. ...and maybe Devoted / Dependent 2nd or 3rd.

Anyways, here're some other websites w/ Oldham stuff, one an incomplete archive.is archive of psyed (which is one of the best websites for Oldham indeed) which I made some time back:

    I know this theory, last time I took the test I scored senstive type, which correlates with avoidant personality disorder. My big 5 socre is pure histrionic though, but I remember I scored pretty low on dramatic style on that test and I do not relate to it either.

    I'm closest to Inventive; in the Big 5 I have high neuroticism, medium extroversion, high openness, low agreeableness, low conscientiousness. Oldham styles are interesting and I think being highly neurotic is kind of crucial to a lot of the mentioned personality disorders
