PMID:  6517169     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Profiles of ego functions of borderline patients are studied. Three ego functions were found to be significantly more disturbed: reality testing, object relations, and defense mechanisms. Further analysis of these and their subfunctions reveals a significant difference between emotional and cognitive factors. Emotional-internal functions are the more disturbed. This consistent difference illuminates the style of functioning of borderline patients.
