If that stuff is too confusing, here's a simpler view:

It integrates the attachment, self, object relations and is probably one of the best articles i've seen free/online outside of books.

There are basically 3 types of MI called 'personality organization':

1. Neurotic
2. Borderline
3. Psychotic

(there are different theories about this-but this one makes it simpler to understand)...'Borderline personality organization' is used broadly to differentiate neurotic/psychotic with those who may have more complex self/attachment issues. This, and similar concepts, seem to be inclusive of histrionic, 'overt narcissistic'...and all the things here that go with an insecure or disorganized childhood attachment that i mentioned:

-low self esteem
-fearfulness/intimacy avoidance
-sensitivity, i.e. criticism
-weak or unstable sense of self
-abandonment fears/intimacy avoidance
-dependency issues

If you have a borderline personality organization, your temperment may affect the expression of those traits (extroverted vs introverted, agressive vs passive) etc. Also, one could be a high-functioning borderline, or neurotic, but express as borderline only during times of excess social stressors.

Page 5 talks about the cognitive problems-and points to cognitive differences of ADD and borderline traits. But keep in mind, if you have a schitzotypal temperment for example, it would compound the cognitive problems associated with a BPO. Either way, i don't think it should matter where the symptoms 'come from' to be treated with ADD meds...and why you couldn't simply take that test over for clarification of that one point difference. Many of those tests are subjective anyway.
