never set out to dedicate more than five years to researching and writing about
how the behavior of those with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) affects
family members. You don’t choose some jobs, they choose you. Or as singer/songwriter
Carrie Newcomer puts it in “Close Your Eyes,” “How I got this job I’ll
never know, but when it calls, you can’t refuse to go.”
My involvement with BPD began as a personal quest. In the early 1990s, I

In social psychology, it is generally accepted that one discloses more of his/her personal information to someone in a strong relationship. We present a computational framework for automatically analyzing such self-disclosure behavior in Twitter conversations. Our framework uses text mining techniques to discover topics, emotions, sentiments, lexical patterns, as well as personally identiﬁable information (PII) and personally embarrassing information (PEI).
The wealth of available genomic data has spawned a corresponding interest
in computational methods that can impart biological meaning and context
to these experiments. Traditional computational methods have drawn rela-tionships between pairs of proteins or genes based on notions of equality
or similarity between their patterns of occurrence or behavior. For exam-ple, two genes displaying similar variation in expression, over a number of
experiments, may be predicted to be functionally related.
“KNOW THYSELF” and “To thine own self be true,” aphorisms taken
from classic literary works and passed down through many generations
as standard wisdom, remain popular even today. Centuries ago, when
Socrates and Shakespeare penned those now-immortal words, they probably
did not know that they were glimpsing a broader, more exact
science—that of emotional intelligence. Today, emotional intelligence has
blossomed from studies in social behavior to a measurable, predictable
pattern of thought and action that influences decision making and success
After completing this unit, you should be able to: Recognize how mental models guide your behavior and relationships; engage in independent thinking by staying mentally alert, thinking critically, and being mindful rather than mindless; breaking out of categorized thinking patterns and open your mind to new ideas and multiple perspectives;…
This holds true given the importance of customers’ service and performance orientation in generally risk-averse households. Therefore, the effects of the financial crisis on customers’ relationships are explored. Insights are gained into patterns of consumer behavior in disruptive settings. A conceptual framework is generated – supp
