@Blonde: I do not work for this magazine nor do I have any vested interest in defending the author of this article but do you realize that this is meant to be just that: an somewhat short article on BPD reporting mainly on a test that was done on subject with BPD and control subjects. This was not meant as a thesis or a detailed explanation of this very serious psychological disorder. I agree that we should understand the problem better and have compassion for people with that disorder.Where did you get the impression that it puts its sufferers down? It doesn't.
