Negative Personality Disorder

Negativistic personality disorder, also known as passive-aggressive personality disorder, is characterized by indirectly expressing hostility. For instance, a wife is deliberately forgetting to wash her husband’s clothes and serving burnt dinner because he is not helping in doing household chores. However, this is already an obsolete diagnosis as it is merely a response to certain situations. Hence, it is more of a personality trait rather than a disorder.
