Yes, I have heard this is a good way to describe a PD. Not an annoying personality trait, but a pervasive life-affecting disorder. I have a friend who sees undiagnosed attention-deficit disorder in anyone who gets the least bit distracted and then I think of DS's friends whose lives are in turmoil as a result. Not the same at all.
