Re: The hypothesis stating that females with borderline personality disorder represent an extreme form of female-typical behavior has been informally suggested following Baron-Cohen’s Extreme Male Brain theory of autism.
So typicall female behavior is falling easily in love and creating strong emotional connections. And when they get angry they are second to the devil.
Women only fall in love easily with attractive men. They almost never fall in love with low-status, unattractive men.
Women's biological imperative is to extract as many resources as possible from men for themselves and for their offspring. That is why women are so materialistic, selfish, and manipulative. Women's love tends to be conditional, pragmatical and self-interested. Men's love tends to be unconditional and sacrificial. Women often divorce or break-up with their partners as soon as a better option presents itself. If BPD is an extreme form of female-typical behavior, one would expect these tendencies to be even more pronounced in women diagnosed with the disorder.
Yeah, Baron-Cohen's E-S theory is bluepilled.
BPD and especially histrionic disorder are overwhelmingly female disorders, but not because they maximize empathy. Women are actually not much more empathetic, if at all (think intrasexual competition and how they opportunistically switch mates). All their emotions are simply more extroverted in a childish manner. Their caring obsession with children is completely misleading. The extremes of both sexes have low empathy which makes sense in a world of limited resources where species are selected to selfishly maximize their reproductive success. It's different kinds of psychopathy though: Gossipy/hysterical intrasexual competition etc. vs ruthless dominance.
Systemizing is better, but this also does not delineate casual pondering ("omg I love science!!") from deep status-driven thought.
