    I think it depends on what kind of personality disorder they have. Some disorders are just nasty and they don't have any wisdom in them. Like narcissistic or paranoid.

    Borderline and bipolar, maybe.

    Even those have some, though admittedly few, upsides. Narcissists can get things done without worrying about other people's feelings, which, in a rare situation, can be just what is needed. And if you ever need someone to find even the tiniest of security loopholes or potential threats, a paranoid person might actually serve you well. But that makes them useful rather as tools than as people, which is probably unsatisfying.

    Yes, this forum loves to say most mental disorders comes from genetics. It is a form of denial, really. Of the truth.

    When I was diagnosed with bipolar II early this summer it honestly seemed like not much changed. I just got a label, and some pills (valorpic acid) to help keep me stable. I'm happy to say it helps. I would say I have wisdom on some areas. Then again, everyone does. Yes there is some stigma against mental disorders, and most of it is from lack of understanding. I'm not going to go around and tell people I know IRL what mine is as people wrongly assume it is bipolar I (the type that goes into full manic modes), and may be hesitant to trust me when that is unfounded. Does this bother me? Nope. All I have to do is not say what I have and I don't have a problem. Easy.

    Honestly, I think this is sort of a meaningless concept. I mean, does it really matter? It's likely that this is just stemming from my annoyance and disdain for philosophy, but the idea of wisdom and lack their of from mental disorders, all I can think is... who cares?

    "wisdom comes from winters"
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I’ll preface this with a well-known fact: mental illness is multifactorial therefore experiences differ from person to person.

    The notion that you need full emotional health to be wise is erroneous as there are different levels of severity for every illness, different minds, and lives being affected therefore you can’t make blanket statements on such conditions. Those who do have little knowledge or experience with mental illness. Hence, I don’t have a strong opinion on the mentally ill. The only characteristic I find amongst them is an inability to carry out a ‘normal’ tasks; live a ‘normal’ life. I feel empathy for them but I’m hesitant to blame all their mistakes and faults on a mental illness.

    No, this is a romanticisation of mental illness and is just as pervasive.
