Personality and aging

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Typical personality development as well as personality disorders across the life cycle are discussed here, with particular attention to borderline personality disorder (BPD). The five-factor model provides a well-known framework for considering personality. The five domains, including neuroticism, extraversion, openness to experience, agreeableness, and conscientiousness, are briefly examined. BPD has a heterogeneous course with a longitudinal trajectory that will be explored in this chapter. Although BPD has a better prognosis than previously recognized, BPD patients continue to have lower psychosocial functioning than patients with other personality disorders.
