Gotta Stereotype Myself
I've asked my therapist for a diagnosis of me and he said he doesn't believe in labels, but that won't do! I need one to feel complete so here I am.
EDIT: With the link below you can help me in that regard.

If he’s billing your insurance (and you live in US) he has certainly diagnosed you but may not be revealing it.
Nope, I'm paying out of pocket.

Homosexuality was once considered a mental disorder but as it became accepted in mainstream society it's no longer considered that.
Delta LSE granny in rocking chair on porch with a stern face looking directly into the camera: "Yeah well they were wrong about that!"
"But banD - what about things that really are personality disorders like narcissism." Ah yes but narcissism isn't some vague general thing, there are a lot of specifics to it. Narcissism that doesn't go against mainstream society is still perfectly socially acceptable even if it obviously incredibly hurtful and harmful to individuals. Most narcissists won't be in therapy anyway even though they need it the most. So that doesn't really count.
Some things will probably never be socially acceptable or only socially acceptable under the right circumstances. If you want to kill yourself of others without a good excuse other than 'it just feels good when I stab them' - that probably won't ever be accepted even if it's just yourself, because people have this fear that a person that wants to hurt themselves is likely to hurt others anyway (and vice-versa) since communities are in a sense based on people being connected. By 'connected' tho that's code words for socially forcing us to be all the same.
But who knows. Since it's based on social acceptance and social acceptance comes from the mob of Masses (and beware of following the Masses the M is often silent) one day even that might be considered to be normal and acceptable.
Differences are scary to the mind control mob of Karen-trons. True, real, raw differences. Not the fake pc 'we accept everybody that's different' tacky rainbow banner even though it's BS and society obviously doesn't really do that. And so society needs yet another tool to bully/subjugate/ and mentally guilt trip people into being the same.
Why do you want a personality disorder though? Why do you want a professional to give you a label of something that's wrong with you- so that can be your new excuse for whatever? And the professionals & "officials" in the world can give them even more reasons to look down on you and not learn from what you have to offer. I believe, in my corny Fe idealism, that everybody has a lot to teach. Tbh I might like that therapist and he or she seems kinda cool. I sorta wish I had a therapist like that instead of one that was all too quickly to label and write bad things about me in some official Te handbook.
I love weirdos/misfits and people who go against the Deep State/establishment because they are often just really smart folks that are ahead of the times.
The words "therapist" and "Dr." are labels, you should ask him to remove them from his door and advertisements. He should also stop referring to you by your name, since your name is also a label.

Among people with unusual behavior a majority has psyche disorders and other disadvantages - they suffer higher and/or make higher suffering to others, while bringing same or lower usefulness.

As when rules are broken this may mean that you are not strong enough to follow them, but not only when those rules are not good.
It's liberal propaganda who makes a misleading of good image to the ones who breaks social rules and norms. It's done to weaken people abbility to cooperate to protect their interests against a minority which expoitate them. And also supports good image of individualism - to what that minority follows in harming the life of most people.
About 20% of a population may to have psyche disorders (soft or strong) by today medic norms. It's alot. Where environment becomes worse or people do the harm to themselves by drugs - this % may arise. Brain is a body organ and with bad inborn factors, in bad environmental conditions, when gets a harm - disorders develop easier and hence different anormal behavior.
The main trait of disorders is suffering. How many people feel themselves happy enough? How many people do not make other people suffering? If those "weirdos" have and/or produce a suffering higher than average - they are not "healthy". If they do not more use than average or live not better than average - they are not smart on practice.

To be honest I don't want a personality disorder, I guess I want an explanation as to why I am the way I am. The one before him diagnosed me with Major Depression and it made me feel less unworthy, as in my laziness and irritableness wasn't due to a crappy unchangeable personality. The same thing happened with attachment styles, when I discovered mine it all made sense (all my life I had thought that I was simply unskilled at socializing.) He might still write those labels in a handbook without telling me though.
