Online Game Can Diagnose Personality Disorder

By using an online strategy game, researchers noticed that individuals with borderline personality disorder played so erratically that they could be diagnosed by the other individual they played with.

As reported by Medical Xpress, the healthy individuals playing the game gave up on strategy when playing against those with borderline personality disorder because they were so unpredictable.

The study is considered a significant contribution to the growing field of ‘computational psychiatry’, which lends a mathematical approach to understanding mental dysfunction.
