Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) has been the subject of extensive research, particularly its symptom of impulsivity, which is considered a key component of neurobehavioral models of BPD and often leads to severe negative consequences for the person. Impulsivity and the measurements used to assess it have greatly evolved over time. Recently, the study of inhibition processes with behavioral tasks has highlighted some cognitive and affective deficits in this population. However, the literature presents important inconsistencies which raise questions about the potential role played by personality processes such as the self-concept. We investigated this question via a systematic review and our results lead us to propose a new theoretical model which integrates inhibition processes and the self-concept in order to explain the occurrence of borderline impulsive behavior.
