Take the TAMI GREEN borderline personality disorder test

2. A pattern of unstable and intense interpersonal relationships characterized by alternating between extremes of idealization and devaluation.
(My relationships were so intense. This has everything to do with needing people to stabilize and validate you. And also feeling so incredibly fragile when receiving anything that can be construed as rejection or criticism. Read on to learn more. -Tami)
A pattern of unstable relationships, marked by extremes of idealization and devaluation, is one of the most important symptoms in making an accurate diagnosis of borderline personality disorder, with studies reporting a sensitivity of 74% and a specificity of 87%. Because of this interpersonal instability, less than half of women with the disorder marry, and even less have children.* According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition by the American Psychiatric Association, this is one of the nine criteria used to diagnosis BPD.
