BPD and Type Correlation
Interested to know what anyone who has some knowledge of Borderline Personality and associated comorbid disorders thinks of possible correlations between those disorders and socionics types? I'm aware already of the Big Five correlations to BPD and feeling types are probably more likely to be Borderline but what are your deeper opinions? I was ruminating over it and it seems to me the ENFj, INFp, and ENFp seem to be the types most likely to correlate. Any other thoughts? For those who don't know, here is a broad symptoms list:
" 1. Excessive, unstable and poorly regulated emotional responses.
The most commonly affected emotions are anger, anxiety and depression.
2. Impulsive behaviors that are harmful to you or to others.
3. You may have an inaccurate view of yourself and others, and experience a high level of suspiciousness and other misperceptions.
4. Finally, you may experience tumultuous and very unstable relationships. "

I think I exhibit BPD traits, for sure. Not "bad enough" according to psychiatrists to diagnose me with it, but of course, all traits are on a continuum.. I am EIE for what it's worth and I do believe I have heard/known of other EIEs that also are emotionally unstable like this.
My EIE ish mom has some of those traits too, most significantly the splitting. Makes sense
