It seems you're still not aware of this, but there is no secret science litmus test for personality disorders: It's always an opinion. It appears you want to dismiss expert opinion simply because you don't want it to be true. But I do believe that there is a reason your efforts to turn your own beliefs into facts have been such a miserable failure: The Yale group's opinion is very well founded, whereas yours seems to be politically biased pseudo-science and irrational devotion to dogma.
