Personality Changes After Car Accident and Traumatic Brain Injury

There’s a common misconception that one’s personality never changes for the duration of one’s life. This couldn’t be further from the truth, and nowhere is this perfectly exemplified than in individuals that have suffered a traumatic brain injury. This refers to the injury of brain tissue caused by blunt force, typically caused by assault, falls, and auto accidents. Certain structures in the brain are responsible for the processing of emotions and should they get damaged, mood swings and personality changes may become commonplace in the lives of affected victims and their loved ones. Personality changes are not only distressing, but they can also pose risk and danger to both the victim and their caregiver.

These parts of the brain are said to control personality:

  1. The amygdala
  2. The temporal lobe
  3. The frontal lobe
  4. The hippocampus

Brain Damage and Personality Changes

Any kind of damage to these regions of the brain may lead to drastic personality changes such as mood swings, disagreeableness, becoming hot-tempered, impulsivity, the development of new addictions, antisocial behavior such as kleptomania, pyromania and sociopathy.

In addition to brain damage, individuals with traumatic brain injury may have a hard time controlling their emotions due to the new circumstances that life has dealt them. Damage to the frontal lobes can also cause them to become suspicious or paranoid, lose inhibition and have exaggerated reactions to perceived hurt.

How to Cope With Personality Changes After Traumatic Brain Injury

It is important to be patient with individuals with traumatic brain injury as this will help them relearn appropriate emotional behavior. Remember that the individual is not their illness and that with proper rehabilitation and the right medication, they may be on the mend in no time.
