Of course, people with healthy personalities will occasionally get overwhelmed with emotions, or can feel emotionally detached at times.
These people tend to be rather dramatic in their emotional expression to such an extent they seem to be disingenuous, shallow, and insincere.
Other people will often react to their intense emotional expression with discomfort, and regard the rapidly shifting emotions with a sense of disbelief or distrust.
During interpersonal conflicts they become easily overwhelmed with the intensity of their emotions, and may have a hard time calming down once they are upset.
At other times, people with Borderline Personality Disorder can rapidly shift to the polar opposite and suddenly feel completely disconnected, numb, empty, and detached.
On the other side of the affective spectrum is the Histrionic Personality Disorder, which represents emotional under-regulation.
This disorder is characterized by an extremely reactive emotional pattern that shifts very rapidly.
People with Schizoid Personality Disorder are at the over-regulated end of the affective spectrum and appear emotionally constricted and indifferent.Other personality disorders are characterized by little or no emotional response, regardless of the circumstance or situation.Yet another set of disorders are characterized by bouncing back and forth between these two extremes: from being overwhelmed with intense emotions one moment, to feeling numb and disconnected in the next.Consequently, they may tolerate mistreatment, and avoid conflict at the expense of their dignity and self-respect.The Borderline Personality Disorder provides an example of the affective pattern of experiencing both emotional extremes; from highly intense and dys-regulated emotions, to the extreme opposite-- feelings of numbness and detachment.
