Abstract

Presents a rejoinder to comments made by Oltmanns (see record 2013-45025-017) and Markon (see record 2013-45025-018) on the original article by Widiger (see record 2013-45025-016) regarding personality disorders in the DSM-5. Widiger comments that one of the texts he enjoys a great deal is Jerry Wiggins' Paradigms of Personality Assessment. Widiger notes that Wiggins presents within this book five fundamentally different theoretical models for personality assessment (e.g., psychodynamic and trait). Widiger further comments that what is evident throughout is that Jerry valued, and loved, all five perspectives. He favored none of them and supported all of them. In Widiger's opinion, this perspective would be worthwhile for the authors of the next diagnostic revision. This means being less antagonistic (e.g., dismissive of a research literature), and also less antagonizing (e.g., ignoring a research literature). Widiger remarks that all voices must be heard, and most importantly, appreciated.
