Those with borderline personality disorder have problems regulating emotional impulses and often experience rocky relationships. But new research suggests that many men find traits associated with borderline personality disorder to be appealing in physically attractive women. The study has been published online in the journal Personality and Individual Differences.

The research was inspired by a viral parody video, in which a man provides scientific-sounding advice about the relationship between a woman’s physical appearance, personality, and her dating appeal.

“I had stumbled across the Hot Crazy Matrix (HCM) YouTube video and was struck by its popularity and media coverage it had attracted. It got me thinking about why it resonates with so many people,” explained study author Alyson Blanchard, a senior lecturer at Bishop Grosseteste University.

More information on HCM is available here.

    1. Keep your money in your front pocket.
    2. Never, ever invite The Man into your life.
    3. Never sleep with a crazy chick.

  2. Alyson Blanchard is an idiot.

    The reason that matrix resonates with so many people is because it is TRUE. Men are not ATTRACTED to crazy women; attractive women tend to be crazier. Probably because they have gotten their way for most of their lives, because they were hot, and men wanted to be with them. And when someone finally tells them “no,” this is unacceptable.
