Q: Hello, Can a BPD also be a NPD? After reading the differences, my uBPDw shows both traits, exactly and shifts from one to the other depending on mood or triggers. She has said “sorry” on a handful of occasion, but not the norm. Thanks for any help.
A: Yes- 25 to 37 per cent of NPD are co-morbid (occur together) with BPD. Please read the article on “Differences between Borderline and Narcissistic Personality Disorder”. You can use similar coping strategies with either one. It is probable that she learned to say she was sorry when she was in the most difficult predicaments that she couldn’t get out of; her apologies are most likely a learned response and not genuine.
