This article is a response to Gordon Parker's 'Etiology of Personality Disorders: A Review and Consideration of Research Models.' His proposal of a three-component model of personality is considered. The utility of epidemiological methods to investigate personality is outlined, and studies supporting a dimensional model of personality with no evidence of a threshold for disorder are described.
