Dunner (2005) argued against dysthymic disorder as an axis II condition. ” While Axis I mood disorders occur more often in family members, this may potentially be an interactive function of both genes and shared environments. Orstavik, et. al. ” This is similar to concerns that have been raised about depressive personality disorder, in that family members may be more likely to experience mood symptoms. The axis I and II distinction in this respect certainly may be artificial (and whether or not it is retained in DSM-V is beyond the scope of this book).

According to McCrae, et. , individuals have “Basic Tendencies” which are determined by biological factors, and “Characteristic Adaptations” which are psychological features which are developed as the person encounters their environment. ” The research on normal personality and Axis II along with the significant overlap of Axis I and Axis II significantly confounds arguments against DPD or chronic depressive personality traits based simply on the similar high rates of mood disorders in families.

One concern about DPD (and the personality disorders in general), is the rate of co-occurrence with other disorders. There have been a range of figures published in regards to diagnostic overlap. Skodol, et. al. (1999) found that 49% of their DPD subjects did not have a current major depressive disorder, 22% did not have a lifetime major depressive disorder and 72% did not have dysthymic disorder. In reviewing past studies Laptook, et. al. (2006) noted that about half of participants with DPD did not have dysthymic disorder and ½ the participants with dysthymic disorder did not have DPD.
