Abstract:

The term borderline personality organization more accurately describes the people who have a specific, stable, pathological personality organization, which is not a transitory state fluctuating between neurosis and psychosis. Borderline personality disorder is a condition characterized by difficulties in regulating emotion. This difficulty leads to severe, unstable mood swings, impulsivity and instability, poor self-image and stormy personal relationships. People may make repeated attempts to avoid real or imagined situations of abandonment. The combined result can manifest into destructive behavior, such as self-harm or suicide attempts.

Keywords:

Borderline personality disorder, impulsivity, destructive behavior, primitive defenses, diffuse identity, object relations.
