“A very obvious dichotomy present in the lives of non-borderlines in relationships with or to borderlines, and many borderlines, themselves, is the gap that exists between intellect and emotion. Borderlines often "know" intellectually that which they do not "know" emotionally. There is often a gap between "adult-like" and age-appropriate intellect and "child-like" and age-inappropriate emotionally-motivated behaviour. I believe this is due to the damage suffered emotionally which leads one to be borderline in the first place which interferes with normal emotional development. This gap is made more evident by the triggered-dissociation that most borderlines experience. When one is triggered (dissociation) back to another times and experience one's intellect cannot over-compensate. Thus we see "regressive" "child-like" behaviour from borderlines, who are otherwise very intelligent adults.” website
