The most studied and investigated disorder is Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) among personality disorders. The purpose of this study is to investigate how identity dimensions, depression, anxiety and narcissism characteristics predict BPD characteristics. Correlational descriptive model was used in the present study. The research group consisted of 264 (141 male, 123 female) participants and their ages are between 18-24 years old (mean=20.46±1.05). Borderline Personality Inventory, Utrecht-Management of Identity Commitments Scale, Narcissistic Personality Inventory, Beck Depression Inventory, and Beck Anxiety Inventory were used in order to collect data. According to regression analysis results gender, commitment making, narcissism, depression and anxiety significantly predicted BPD. Depression is the best predictor of BPD, while gender is the weakest predictors of BPD. The results of this study showed that gender, identity dimensions, depression, anxiety and narcissism are important variables in BPD. This result suggests that mental health professionals should consider these variables when dealing with individuals who exhibit this disorder.
