"The psychoanalyst Alan Krohn (1974) first identified the paradoxical nature of the diagnosis, describing how some individuals with BPD appear to possess an uncanny sensitivity to other people's subconscious mental content and states, despite their inability to coherently integrate such information into stable concepts of self and other that are fundamental to healthy interpersonal functioning. Both Krohn (1974) and Carter & Rinsley (1977) proposed that enhanced empathic sensitivity develops in the borderline child in response to confusing or neglectful parenting, which motivates the child towards increased empathic functioning."

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is commonly proposed to be characterized by an enhanced sensitivity for emotional stimuli.

RESULTS:
The participants with BPD performed significantly better in the detection of positive and negative facial expressions compared to the healthy controls.

CONCLUSIONS:
The BPD participants showed an enhanced detection of emotional expressions that might be related to the emotional disturbances they experience. In particular, we will discuss the role of this superior emotion detection (in combination with previously reported deficits in the labeling of emotional states) for the understanding of emotional instability in BPD.
