What is Borderline Personality Disorder?

Borderline personality disorder is one of many personality disorders, it is characterized by impulsivity and emotional instability. Those who take the borderline personality disorder test or quiz above and have symptomatic results may experience sudden mood swings, black and white thinking, and difficulties in exercising control over their emotional responses due to the disorder. However, as mentioned, the quiz is not a diagnosis; the quiz identifies potential symptoms and seeking treatment is the next step.

Although this disorder typically occurs during adulthood, there are cases when this disorder can begin to manifest during adolescence. It’s also one of the most common personality disorders, affecting 1-2% of the general population.

Since people with BPD may have a hard time keeping their emotions under control, they are often in a state of anger and revolt.

On top of that, their self-image is profoundly distorted, making them feel worthless and fundamentally imperfect. Although they crave human connection and affectionate relationships, those who experience this disorder often fail to cultivate long-term relationships because their anger, impulsivity, and lack of emotional control, can quickly drive people away.

Fortunately, decades of scientific studies have helped mental health professionals gain a better understanding of this disorder and design effective intervention strategies. Current research indicates that, by following proper intervention strategies, people with BPD can enjoy a happy and fulfilled life regardless of the disorder.

Signs of Borderline Personality Disorder

The critical element of borderline personality disorder is a pattern characterized by instability in interpersonal relationships, as well as impulsivity. This borderline personality disorder test above aims to question these signs and symptoms via a self-assessment or quiz where you may feel most comfortable. Common symptoms include:

  • Sustained effort to avoid real or imaginary abandonment
  • Pattern of unstable relationships, alternating between idealization and devaluation
  • Frequent emotional swings
  • Impulsive and risky behaviors such as unprotected sex, dangerous driving, compulsive gambling
  • Intense but short episodes of anxiety or depression
  • Uncontrollable anger
  • Fear of being alone
  • Chronic sensation of emptiness

During stressful periods, people with borderline personality disorder can experience psychotic symptoms such as paranoid thinking and hallucinations. On top of that, this disorder can also be accompanied by other conditions such as depression, PTSD, and anxiety. While taking a borderline personality disorder test or quiz, be sure to open up about your emotions and how these symptoms have effected you and your mindset. However, be aware that this quiz is examining how you resonate with this disorder in the moment, but the quiz may not be encompassing all potential symptoms. Once you take the quiz, discuss the results with a licensed professional who may be able to help identify other signs of the disorder, and address further concerns brought up by the quiz or other experiences you have faced that may highlight a disorder or other mental health concerns.

How is Borderline Personality Disorder Treated?

Treatment can be challenging with many disorders. The intensity of the symptoms, coupled with emotional and behavioral instability represent serious obstacles that can delay recovery of certain disorders. The results of this borderline personality test may give you insight into what the best next steps are for treatment after completion of the quiz.

Treatment will typically involve both medication and a long-term therapeutic process that helps the person acquire healthy coping strategies and develop emotional stability.


Although there are no pharmacological treatments explicitly designed for this disorder, psychiatrists often prescribe medication for related conditions or mental disorders such as anxiety, depression, and impulsivity.

Medication – in combination with therapy – can help stabilize emotions, reduce impulsive behaviors, relieve psychotic symptoms, or treat other conditions or disorders that are associated with this disorder. 


Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) are the most widely used therapeutic approaches for this disorder.

In fact, dialectical behavior therapy was explicitly designed for this disorder and is usually delivered through individual or group sessions.

With the help of a licensed therapist or counselor, people who show strong symptoms on a borderline personality disorder test or quiz can learn how to control their emotional reactions, tolerate unpleasant feelings from the disorders, improve relationships, and cultivate stability in all the critical areas of life regardless of the diagnosis of this disorder.

This isn't really a big deal or an accomplishment, but I finally found out I am not a really evil person and heartless...but I am still weary that I could be a narcissistic person. BPD fits more with all the things I've done and felt becuz after an outburst I don't want to hurt myself or think anyone is bad. But I also feel really guilty and have a hard time admitting I was wrong. I've have really screwed up my life so far...14 yrs. old and following the footsteps of your siblings. Excellent grades dropping and a future being destroyed by myself. The description and behavior of BPD matches how my mother acted and my siblings before we were put in foster care.

it was like i was checking off things about myself that were true that i've noticed that i've never seen before in myself things that i didn't think i had or were even real, but they are.

My result did not shock me as I have always suspected I may have BPD. I just wanted to see for myself, which is why I took this test. I already have THE BEST therapist I could ever have asked for...Thank You A.R.!!

Very helpful and honest

DN·Sydney, Australia·June 2021


Great! Confirming what I now know after 25 years of trying to find the diagnosis.

CM·Pittsburgh, United States·May 2021


I was just getting a second opinion, I have already been diagnosed with BPD. The test was spot on. Good job!

GN·Orlando, United States·May 2021


I took this test because someone I live with, who has a degree in psychology urged me to take it and see for myself what they see on a daily basis. I took the test and I scored in the high risk range so I’m thinking It may be time to look into it further and possibly get the help I need to break this cycle that I feel I’ve been repeating my whole life.

MJ·Waynesville, United States·April 2021


It’s a helpful test, for sure. I took it twice though, because I realised the distinction of time was absent. Some of the questions were true for one or two occasions in my lifetime, and many were true for limited periods in the past. I think it’d be improved by defining time, or qualifying present and past in some way. We grow and learn, so some of this stuff has affected me at times, but not consistently through life. Thanks for the great insights and opportunity for help.

I took the test as I recently met a girl who has this. I have (other) issues and I wanted to see what kind of things she might be thinking. I did have some issues the test brought up and I was able to see the difference in bpd. I think this easy test could help someone to realize they have it and hopefully get treatment. Thank you for making this available to the public. Many people put off going to a professional because of the cost. Yes, it’s worth it but younger people may not have the money. Hopefully the can find a non-profit that can help them in some way.

My sister told me she thinks I have BPD and this test just proves that she was right and that I need to seek professional help. Thank you.

SD·Woodway, United States·March 2020


Crazily accurate!

WD·Adelaide, Australia·March 2020


I like how the question are simple and accurate (for me) This test really is great and I’m happy I took it

NC·Puyallup, United States·February 2020


I’m diagnosed with it but I thought I would try here. Turns out it’s accurate.

MM·Edmonton, Canada·February 2020


Doing a few of these tests around the web. And this was very informing and accurate

JI·Montreal, Canada·January 2020


I’ve struggled with panic attacks, anxiety, derealization and ptsd symptoms most of my life. My therapist suggested I may have bpd. I’m planning to go to a residential crisis center tomorrow for help because my family is completely split apart and although I don’t completely blame myself, I haven’t made things much better for sure. This diagnosis is new to me; I already have so many. But I really need help. Prayers for all who suffer with mental illness.

Great quiz. I was partially diagnosed with BPD and this test gave me a 10/10. The only thing is I don’t think it should be ten simple questions. BPD is very complex and alike a lot of other disorders and gets confused with others a lot, this should be much more in depth with questions.
