Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a severe personality disorder whose main features include affective instability, identity problems, negative relationships and self-harm. The Personality Assessment Borderline- features (PAI-BOR) scale developed by Morey (1991) assesses these features on a continuous scale. In 2004, the PAI-BOR was translated into Dutch and completed by 8511 men and women aged 18 to 90 years. The internal consistency (Crohnbach's α) of the Dutch PAI-BOR is good (α = 0.81). Six-month test-retest correlation is 0.78. Thus, BPD features in the general population can reliably be assessed by the Dutch version of the PAI-BOR. The four domains as proposed by Morey (1991) are also found in the Dutch data. The effects of sex, age and educational level on BPD features are discussed and means and standard deviations for twelve sex (3287 men, 5224 women) by age (18 - 35, 36 - 90 years) by level of education (low, middle, high) groups are presented. © 2009 Bohn Stafleu van Loghum.
