Antisocial vs. Borderline Personality Disorders

ASPD Personality Traits

As defined by the DSM-5, people with ASPD will exhibit the following behavioral characteristics:1

  • Antagonism: Antagonism in ASPD is displayed through manipulation, such as using charming behavior to influence someone into doing what you want. They will often engage in vengeful behaviors over minor slights and may even resort to aggression, violence, and cruelty.
  • Disinhibition: Disinhibition in ASPD is characterized by a disregard of social conventions and reckless, risk-taking behaviors at the expense of others’ safety or feelings. It is not uncommon for people with ASPD to break promises, miss appointments, or drop activities out of a sense of boredom or spite.
  • Emotional Detachment: People with ASPD exhibit greater egocentric behaviors, making it difficult to establish balanced and supportive relationships. This emotional detachment can complicate psychotherapy, the practice of which relies heavily on open interaction.
