    Paranoid personality disorder: a pattern of being suspicious of others and seeing them as mean or spiteful. People with paranoid personality disorder often assume people will harm or deceive them and don't confide in others or become close to them.

    No it's just a trait. Nothing wrong with being mean.

    Reposting the same questions over and over is a sign of retardation.

    In my opinion, it is not personality disorder. It depends on the circumstances and the environment one is in. At the same time if some realize that I was mean for no apparant reason, then it can be changed with efforts if one understands even a little bit about Karma. It can be reversible if it is there.
