If a person sacrifices themselves to others for religious reasons, and willfully allows himself to be a means for others' ends, then would you consider them self-defeating, or merely a person acting in accordance with an ideological belief?

If a very individualistic person is causing white-collar destruction to society, but does so because he feels that corporate consumerism is destroying the potential of man, would you classify him as anti=social, or merely a person acting in accordance with an ideological belief?

If a person believes that emotions are the epitome of evil, and they want to mold themselves into a purely rational machine=like individual, so they resist any gesture, words, expressions that are triggered by blind emotions, then would you consider them schizoid or a person acting in accordance?

The reason I ask is because all three of these people could meet the criteria for self-defeating, anti-social, and schizoid personality disorders. But it would seem that they are not suffering from a personality disorder if in fact they were consciously acting out on deduced principles. What do you think?
