Women may think these guys, with their frailness and tragic personas are intriguing and good projects for improvement.
A typical example of what they may look like comes from the musical genre called Emo.
As expected, they found that crime was most strongly associated with psychopathy (which is a dimensional trait that to some extent can be found in the normal population).
As the name suggests it deals with emotionally intense feeling of romantic nature, often tragic and bitter themes.
And like borderlines they are often interested in self-harm and suicide.
The Hidden Threat So it seems the borderline personality is a large and rather hidden threat to women (and probably some men too although women are usually less violent). Pointing the finger at these guys may feel like kicking on someone who is already lying down.
But they are not victims of anything but their own shaky grip on reality, and excusing them or looking the other way will only make for more violence.
It is challenging to have a relationship with a person that has borderline personality disorder (BPD), especially since one of the hallmarks of the disorder is unstable relationships.
Yet, if your partner or spouse has the disorder, you probably want to do everything you can to maintain the relationship.Of offenders who had committed both sexual and non-sexual violent crime half were antisocials and a third were borderlines as compared to third most common category of narcissistic disorder at a mere 3 percent.Given that borderline is rare in the general population, around 1-2 percent, it’s clear that these individuals are very violent. Maybe it’s just because they are so fragile and look more like victims than perpetrators.The Predator Most people are familiar with the characteristics of violent men, either by first-hand experience or through news and true crime books and TV shows.We all know what they look like: fearless, callous, thrill- and pleasure seeking guys who take what they want and who get easily frustrated if someone gets in their way.But bitterness and hate isn’t just expressed by self-destructive gestures.
