Does this sound like BPD?
it sounds more like passive aggressive behavior, but i am no expert on the subject.Does this sound like BPD?
It's the former, they will often get paranoid about small things I do and read into every small actions of mine and then they will start to take all my actions personally and start to display overly huge reaction. I have no idea how to deal with them most of the time, as their reactions tend to be way out of proportion. I never know when certain actions of mine would cause them to explode. And it doesn't help that I have difficulty reading social cues most of the time, I often have no idea that I have upset someone unless people tell me about it in verbal words. So if I ever upset someone, it's usually unintentional and I'm often unaware of it myself.Depends on how much they are overreacting. Do you mean someone who get's angry at you about things that are completely unnecessary and are paranoid about small things that you do? Or do you simply mean someone who is easily offended and passive aggressive?
Anyway yes, I've known people like that
Hm, your classmate sounds like someone whom I'd clash with.I have a person in my class which overreacts constantly, and gets easily angry when someone gives a diferent opinion than hers.
Also, she doesn't understand that things like rules, chain of command, etc can always be at her pleasure.
She can make participating in class a bit difficult.
About the reasons, I don't know her enough to know exactly, I think she sees herself as some kind of fighter going against what she thinks it's unfair.
My feelings exactly.Hm, your classmate sounds like someone whom I'd clash with.
Which personality disorders have they been diagnosed with? Just curious.Yes. Both ladies I'm thinking of were diagnosed with personality disorders. Although, there are plenty of non-diagnosed people who live for drama just the same.
Have you ever encountered such people in your life? They will constantly overreact to everything you do, and you constantly find yourself having to walk on eggshells around them. They will often read too deeply into your actions, and they will often assume that you are out to get them, and then they start to get pissed off at you, and then instead of telling you that they are mad at you, they will start to do a bunch of things to you just to piss you off. They tend to have very huge reaction to little incidents, and you constantly find yourself walking on eggshells around them because you fear that you might trigger them.
Has anyone here ever dealt with these kind of people in your life before? What causes them to act this way?
