However, there are reports of people diagnosed with mpd whose alters have different psychological (and at times even physical) attributes.

How common is it for someone to have borderline personality disorder, antisocial personality disorder, and bipolar disorder all together?
Co-occurence common: The "comorbidity" (co-occurrence) of personality disorders is high, so if someone meets the diagnostic criteria for *any* personality disorder (pd), they are likely to meet the diagnostic criteria for as many as four to six pds.

What is the difference between narcissitic personality disorder and borderline personality disorder I have borderline personality disorder and my girlfriend has narcissistic personality disorder and she says we are exactly alike only i never want to hurt
A : A person with a borderline personality disorder and a person with a narcissistic personality disorder may have a lot in common. The major similarity is difficulty with their relationships with others. An individual with a personality disorder perceives their world and interacts with it in a way that causes them impairment and distress. A person with a borderline personality disorder can experience strong changes in their moods. They may become depressed or anxious, with dramatic anger or rage. They may engage in self injury such as cutting or burning their skin. At times of stress they might threaten to kill them self or may attempt suicide. Risky and impulsive behaviors such as promiscuity, having sex without protection, reckless driving, gambling, over-spending, drug use or abuse of alcohol may occur. Someone who is borderline is usually very fearful of losing the people that are important in their life; of being abandoned. An individual with a narcissistic personality disorder usually is egocentric. They tend to think about their own needs before the needs of others. They may believe that they are superior to others and that they are unique. They may expect special treatment as well as praise from others. Their lack of empathy can lead to problems in their relationships with others. Sometimes they take advantage of others and envy is not uncommon. As you and your girlfriend go through therapy, you should both gain progressively more knowledge about each of your conditions. I hope this information is helpful. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is it possibly someone with antisocial personality disorder also suffer from borderline personality disorder?
Not really.: They are very different. Antisocial people don't really care for others, use people for their own means, do not have sincere emotions. In Borderline personality, people actually might care too much and don't know what to do with their feelings (so will react very extreme to a breakup or with friends). It might appear to overlap (both can have problems with anger), but they are different. ...Read more

I got a diagnoses of dsm axis 2 personality disorder with features of narcissistic, borderline, ocd, dependent and histrionic. Why such a loose defini?
"Features" only: Key word here is "features" of various personality types. The interviewer noted that you have a fixed pattern of relating to the world and others no matter what the situation (personality disorder). This apparently includes features found in several personality disorders but no definitive one stood out. Firmer delineation may come over time, but characteristics of these disorders may overlap. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
