Definitions for "Borderline Personality Disorder"
a mental condition characterized by difficult relationships, moods and behavior as well as self-injury.
Personality characterized by a persistent instability in social relationships, self-image, and emotions. Central to this instability is fear of abandonment and rejection.
A personality disorder in which there is a marked tendency to act impulsively without consideration of the consequences, together with affective instability. The ability to plan ahead may be minimal, and outbursts of intense anger may often lead to violence or "behavioural explosions"; these are easily precipitated when impulsive acts are criticized or thwarted by others. Two variants of this personality disorder are specified, and both share this general theme of impulsiveness and lack of self-control.
