Summary

"Is Your BPD Making You Biased?" - Summary

  • The availability heuristic is a perceptual bias based on easy recall of recent experiences or information that can lead to false conclusions.
  • People with BPD often have intense internal critics that the availability heuristic can reinforce.
  • The availability heuristic can impact relationships by distorting perceptions and causing maladaptive patterns of self-contempt and self-sabotage.
  • The availability heuristic encourages a downward spiral and saps energy to push back.
  • People with BPD need to challenge the availability heuristic by being slow and steady like the tortoise.
  • The tortoise represents system 2 in the brain, which is slower and more deliberate and assesses information before embracing it.
  • The hair represents system 1, which is fast and wily and can overwhelm people.
  • People with BPD need to recognize frustration but also remember that not everything is worth using to define themselves or their relationships.
  • Slowing down and challenging the availability heuristic can help people with BPD manage biases and distortions.
  • People with BPD can win the race against their disorder by being slow and steady and using the tortoise system to assess information and make decisions.
  • It is important to challenge false beliefs and maladaptive patterns of self-contempt and self-sabotage in order to manage BPD.
  • The availability heuristic can be a challenging perceptual bias to overcome, but it is possible with deliberate effort and a slow and steady approach.
