Default correct answer :)

F) conduct is the correct answer

I saw some of you posting antisocial as an answer and then editing/changing it to conduct that was the point of this question - to remind ourselves about the age limit.

Anyways, you guys rock!
I'll just put an explanation in case someone viewing this post wasn't sure:

A minor with conduct personality disorder shows a disregard for and violation of the rights of others, including proclivity for criminal behavior. If this patient was 18 or older he would be considered to have antisocial personality disorder - this is the only personality disorder with an age limit - patients must be above 18.
