Dependent Personality

"Individuals diagnosed with dependent personality tend to be reliant on others past the point that is considered typical or healthy. They may act submissive or clingy to convince others to take care of them. People with this condition may be terrified of being alone. At the heart of dependent personality is a lack of self-efficacy. Individuals with dependent personality believe they are incapable of being independent and may feel unable to make even simple decisions without outside input. They often avoid expressing any type of disagreement for fear of losing their support. Most people with dependent personality are fully capable of functioning on their own. When other individuals do everything for the individual, they may not learn necessary life skills. This perpetuates the cycle of dependency. People with dependent personality may fear seeming too competent and losing support before they are ready. However, they can typically function independently if they know someone else is supervising."
