Question and answer
What is an example of impulsive and often dangerous behaviors that people with borderline personality disorder have a tendency to display?
Impulsivity is a tendency to act quickly without thinking about the consequences of your actions. [ Impulsive behavior usually occurs in reaction to some event that has caused you to have some kind of emotional response. For example, imagine you are waiting in line at the bank and someone cuts in front of you. If you were to act on an impulse, you might immediately behave aggressively toward
that person (e.g., yelling, or even becoming violent), without thinking about the consequence of this kind of behavior (e.g., being escorted out of the bank or even arrested). ]
