Meet the Personality Disorder Crime Force

The Personality Disorder Crime Force, or PDCF, is a fictional team of animated crime-fighters who each embody some of the most prevalent personality disorders. Borderline Bob has unstable emotions and swings back and forth between two drastically different moods. Narcissistic Nora believes she can do anything better than the rest of the team, regardless of the truth. Anti-Social Annie manipulates the rest of the team into doing things her way. Histrionic Harry is always seeking attention, while Schizoid Sam is withdrawn and more interested in solitary pursuits than the goings-on of the rest of the PDCF.

Watch the video below to learn more about each of the members of the PDCF and how difficult it can be for five individuals with different personality disorders to get anything done.

The Study.com team developed the PDCF as a fun and engaging way to introduce viewers to five of the major personality disorders and their symptoms. These five characters bring the disorders to life in a way that we hope students will remember when they need to take a test.

We know that not all online courses are specifically designed for an online learner: some are simply PowerPoint slides with voiceovers while others are videos of an instructor speaking to a large lecture hall. We want the Study.com Academy lessons to be as engaging as they are instructional (think SchoolHouse Rock), and used the concept of 'story-teaching' to introduce and explain personality disorders.

We Want Your Feedback!

We all agree that the PDCF video is one of our most amusing, but we've also been asking ourselves: did we go too far in trying to make this lesson fun? We recognize that mental health is an incredibly sensitive issue, and we don't want to disregard that in our instruction. Do we fail to address this in our lesson? Does our video take a potentially dry subject and make it fun and accessible? Or are we making light of something that deserves more gravity? Let us know what you think by filling out this brief survey. We want to make these videos the best resources they can be and we value your opinion!
