How does a mental health professional know when to diagnose symptoms as a disorder rather than just figure they are normal personality traits? 

Sep 4th, 2015

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

A mental health professional know when to diagnose symptoms as a disorder after an observation of the associated symptoms. Symptoms are used as clues that help determine the likelihood of a diagnosis with the presence of an illness. They are also used to compose a listing of probable diagnosis. These are called the differential diagnosis which is the basis from which an initial test is ordered to choose the diagnosis option and choose treatment. With this evidence of the symptoms, which predict an availability of a disease, the professor therefore gets to know when to diagnose the symptom as a disorder rather than figuring them out as normal personality traits.
