Words matter. I have been learning a lot lately, and one big learning for me is that none of us living in the structures of this world of oppression and "might makes" right thinking are free of trauma. Trauma is not what happens to you, it is what you are able (or most likely not) to do about it, and whether you are alone with it. I am so glad to see labels being discussed here. Another thing I am learning is that "personalities" are simply the way our minds have developed habits about how to respond to situations. If anyone is interested in more, here is the book I am currently reading and heartily recommend. https://www.secondsale.com/i/how-emotions-are-made-the-secret-life-of-the-brain/9781328915436?gclid=Cj0KCQiA7YyCBhD_ARIsALkj54os9NVx3HsK4cTV7LC7Jl7U5KU7i7KomdqGraHU6KWriZqeK9-XwIMaAv6kEALw_wcB Even "professionals" using the DSM V can be quite biased, and misguided when assigning some diagnosis to someone. I am sure everyone here has had moments when they wondered what a psychiatrist might label them as, right? We are all trying to help, and labels more often harm than help when applied to living beings. disclaimer, all this is my own opinion and I am thrilled to learn new things, even if they prove the previous learnings obsolete
