In total, participants were accurately identified, with 4 false-positives and 16 false-negatives. For exploratory purposes, we examined whether 7 indeed proved to be the best possible cutoff point. Using the ROC analysis to evaluated sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative likelihood ratios of all possible cutoff points, we determined that 5 was the best possible cutoff point. Compared to the previously proposed cutoff point of 7, this cutoff had somewhat lower specificity, but importantly better sensitivity, which is an attractive feature for a screener see Table 4. Kappa rose to 0. With the proposed cutoff point of 7, the sensitivity dropped. To our knowledge, this was the first study to evaluate the MSI-BPD as a screening tool in a mixed sample that assessed all clinical syndromes and personality disorders. Overall the value of sensitivity is comparable to that of previous studies 0. The specificity in our study was higher than the range of previous studies 0. Notably, we found that a cutoff of 5 even increased the diagnostic efficiency of the MSI-BPD, with particularly better sensitivity. So it seems important for future studies to explore whether the cutoff value needs to be lowered when screening heterogeneous samples. Specificity proved to be lower when restricting the comparison to the clinical control group. Several methodological limitations should be noted. First, we assessed women only. Second, we used selective samples to assure enough BPD cases in our relatively small sample.

Empirical evidence from the field of developmental psychology demonstrates this fundamental need for connection and for consistent care of caregivers, as well as the distress experienced when this care is absent or removed.

Thus aloneness has been contrasted with loneliness [ 25 ], as loneliness depends on an internalized sense of another who is absent, aloneness is instead a disorganizing feeling of utter helplessness because of a failure to evoke any sense of a soothing other [ 26 ].

This annihilation anxiety may also be seen as a key component of the after-effects of trauma, neglect or abuse [ 27 ], commonly thought to be contributing factors in the etiology of BPD [ 28 ].

When alone this alien self can attack the individual from within and thus creates intolerable distress from internal persecution. Suicide, self-harm and externalization of this difficult part of the self become a means of escape.

A failure in secondary representation, or mentalization, akin to Meares, et al [ 32 ] loss of self-awareness or of the stream of consciousness in BPD, would result in these punitive thoughts being experienced as real, intense and immediate, rather than representations of reality that are one step removed.

Academic Bibliography

Thus, both deficits in mentalization and the resulting immediate experience of punitive internal states may result in distressing aloneness. Adler and Buie [ 33 ] argued this painful aloneness is at the core of BPD and explains clingy desperate behaviours, rage when needs are unmet, self-hatred when fears of rejection arise, and impulsive attempts to avoid the feeling via drinking, sexual activity, suicidal and self-harming behaviours [ 34 , 35 ].

Similarly, intolerance of aloneness has been argued to be a key feature underpinning most if not all DSM criteria for BPD [ 36 ].

As such, the frequency and intensity of aloneness may reflect the severity of BPD, and therefore it is of major importance in treatment [ 33 , 37 ]. Given the diagnostic relevance of this experience in BPD, it is surprising that only one empirical examination of aloneness has been conducted.

Development and validation of an experience of time alone scale for borderline personality disorder

This scale focuses on emptiness, inner deadness, hollowness, the inability to self-soothe and the inability to recall comforting images. Using a BPD sample and a neurotic sample, the authors found that the experience of aloneness was the strongest predictor of BPD diagnosis.

When aloneness was combined with memory quotient and level of depression, use of the scale could discriminate between More empirical research is needed regarding intolerance of aloneness in BPD. Consequently, this paper first aimed to investigate the actual experience of time alone for individuals with BPD.

From this, the study aimed to develop a measure that reflects this described experience, in contrast to the AEMS [ 39 ] that evolved from an existing loneliness scale and was based on theoretical notions only. Finally, the study then aimed to evaluate the developed measure in terms of consistency and reliability.

If considered a core feature of BPD, understanding and being able to measure the nature of the experience of being alone may give clinicians a direct measure of the severity of the illness.

It may also provide a measure of the integrity of the self, an important insight into the capacity to soothe and regulate the self and a vital way to empathize with this painful experience. Given therapeutic relationships are self-evidently not in the context of being alone, a scale assessing this state may also yield important clinical information about specific problems and deficits that are difficult for the client to recall in an interpersonal environment.
