CARVALHO, Lucas de Francisco  e  PIANOWSKI, Giselle. Digital phenotyping and personality disorders: a necessary relationship in the digital age. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2019, vol.21, n.2, pp. 122-133. ISSN 1516-3687.

Digital phenotyping refers to the in-situ quantification of the human phenotype using data from personal digital devices. We argue in favor of using digital phenotyping for mental health, particularly to the personality disorders (PD).We undertake a literature review to ground three main issues, applications, implications, and challenges in harnessing digital phenotyping for PD. The literature presents an amount of studies showing that the PD field can benefit from digital phenotyping. We discuss some key points supporting the envisioned advances in applying the digital phenotyping to PD, such as improvements on assessment, research, PD taxonomy, and, ultimately, on interventions. Despite the prospect progress with this integration, we have discussed many challenges that need to be overcome. While overcoming the challenges, we expect greater practical impact as a result of applying digital phenotyping to PD from professional, patient and community perspectives. The main expectation is to support psychiatric models on prediction over emergency.
