Methods: A family study was conducted on the molecular genetics of depression and personality, in which the proband had been treated for depression. All probands and parents or siblings were interviewed with a structured interview and completed the Temperament and… 
Temperament and character traits in patients with bipolar disorder and associations with attempted suicide.
TLDR
Bipolar patients with or without a history of attempted suicide had higher harm avoidance (HA) scores compared with the healthy controls and a positive correlation was determined between current suicidal ideation scale scores and HA, and a negative correlation between SD and cooperativeness was determined.
Suicide attempts and clinical risk factors in patients with bipolar and unipolar affective disorders.
TLDR
An association between suicidal attempts and the following are observed: family history of psychiatric disorders, affective disorders and psychoactive substance abuse/dependence; inappropriate guilt in depression; chronic insomnia and early onset of unipolar disorder.
Different impulsivity profiles in borderline personality disorder and bipolar II disorder.
TLDR
The findings suggest that BPD and BP II have different impulsivity profiles, and BPD patients exhibited markedly elevated UPPS impulsivity scores compared with healthy controls andBP II patients, and the elevations were not related to current mood state.
Temperament, character, and suicide attempts in unipolar and bipolar mood disorders.
TLDR
Among mood disorder patients, suicide attempt risk is associated with temperament and character dimensions, however, their influence on predisposition to suicide attempts is likely to be mainly indirect, mediated by more time spent in depressive episodes.

Prospective rates of suicide attempts and nonsuicidal self-injury by young people with bipolar disorder participating in a psychotherapy study
TLDR
Adjunctive intensive psychotherapy may be effective in reducing suicide attempts and nonsuicidal self-injury and warrants further attention, especially to individuals with early age of onset of bipolar disorder.
Is ‘subthreshold’ bipolar II disorder more difficult to differentiate from borderline personality disorder than formal bipolar II disorder?

Bipolar Disorder not Otherwise Specified: Comparison with Bipolar Disorder I/II and Major Depression
TLDR
Subjects with BDNOS, based on a history of 1–3 day recurrent hypomanias, should be included within a broader bipolar spectrum.
Differential diagnosis of personality disorders by the seven-factor model of temperament and character.
TLDR
It is concluded that low self-directedness and cooperativeness are core features of all personality disorders and are validly measured by the seven-factor Temperament and Character Inventory, but not the five-factor Neuroticism-Extraversion-Openness inventory.
Borderline personality disorder in major depression: symptomatology, temperament, character, differential drug response, and 6-month outcome.
TLDR
After 6 months, those with BPD had a favorable outcome in regard to depressive symptoms, social adjustment, and even improvement in the character measure of self-directedness, and those with the poorest outcome were those with OPD.
Bipolar disorder. III: Harm avoidance a risk factor for suicide attempts.
TLDR
Age of onset, HA, PS, gender and family history of suicide had a moderate to very strong effect on suicide attempts in bipolar patients.
Affective disorders in the first-degree relatives of bipolar probands: results from the South Island Bipolar Study.
TLDR
It is concluded that while unipolar depressive disorders are the most common affective disorders in the first-degree relatives of bipolar probands, extension of the bipolar phenotype to include bipolar spectrum disorders results in 21% of relatives having any bipolar disorder.
Prevalence and comorbidity of mental disorders in persons making serious suicide attempts: a case-control study.
TLDR
Individuals who made serious suicide attempts had high rates of mental disorders and of comorbid disorders, and subjects with high levels of psychiatric comorbridity had markedly high risks of serious suicide attempt.
Personality disorders in bipolar and depressive disorders.
TLDR
A different pattern of PDs emerges between depressive and bipolar patients, and patients showed more frequently obsessive-compulsive PD, followed by borderline PD and avoidant PD.
A dopamine transporter polymorphism is a risk factor for borderline personality disorder in depressed patients
TLDR
The finding that the association is larger in the older depressed patients, suggests that the 9-repeat allele may be associated with a poorer prognosis BPD, rather than a young adult limited variant of BPD.
Borderline Personality Disorder in Major Depression
TLDR
Depressed subjects with BPD had significantly earlier onset of depression, dense axes I and II comorbidity, and higher prevalence of conduct disorder, and were characterized by elevated psychoticism and anger-hostility scores.
