The other bizarre thing is that people put all of their trust in me so easily. I always think to myself "Why do you trust me?".

"In general, the results of this study suggest that patients with BPD
can be successfully discriminated from major depressives and normals
on the basis of their object relations and social cognition.
The overall pattern of findings suggests that BPDs are distinguished by
poorly differentiated, egocentric representations of people;malevolent expectations of relationships
difficulty investing in relationships and moral standards;
and idiosyncratic and grossly illogical attributions.
It is likely that these characteristics of the object relations and social cognition of borderline patients underlie many of the interpersonal difficulties of these patients.A particularly strong finding is that
BPDs have a tendency to view the world of people as malevolent
which was replicated in a study comparing borderline adolescents to psychiatric and normal comparison subjects (Westen, Ludolph, Lerner, et aL 1990)."

Is it really bizarre that people put all of their trust in people so easily ? Maybe not...
Considering that neither normals nor major depressives (which covers a good part of general population) have that tendency BPDs have... to view the world of people as malevolent
good part of general population puts NOT all, but some of their trust in you... NOT "so easily",
just relatively easily..., but not for long...
, and here... comes a part of the trouble... "of the interpersonal difficulties of these patients"...
just some thoughts... what do you, people, think ?
