It’s high time we put the most enduring myths about human behavior to bed, and see the mind—and the world—as it is.

Thank you for what you stated. I was interested in this topic and felt that many of the examples used in the article, were behaviors that could occur on a spectrum of Borderline Personality Disorder. The examples seemed to be only describing someone on the more extreme end of the spectrum. I was brought up by very dysfunctional parents brought up by dysfunctional parents so it gets hard to know what their illness was or what mine is after being brought up by them. I sometimes want to seek diagnosis but don't want to risk being incorrectly labeled as much of the C-PTSD spectrum mimics more serious personality disorders. I do however appreciate the article's tiny puzzle piece regarding BPD sufferers being unable to discern the difference between real rejection and subtle acceptance in real life situations. The study sounds interesting but the writing is not good or not translated well or something. Too many assumptions, circular logic, and unsubstantiated claims.
