Borderline and antisocial personality disorder is a common and chronic disease that disrupts all aspects of life. Therefore, the present study aimed to compare the affective and emotional temperament among patients with borderline and antisocial personality disorder and normal individuals. The study method is descriptive and causal-comparative. The statistical population consisted of all patients with antisocial and borderline personality disorder in Ardabil central prison and Isar and Fatemi psychiatric hospital in 2018. The sample included 50 patients diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder and 50 patients diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, as well as 50 normal individuals. All subjects were selected based on availability. The data were collected by structured clinical interview for personality disorders and Lara et al.’s affective and emotional composite temperament questionnaire. Data were analyzed using multivariate analysis of variance and LSD test. The results showed that there were significant differences among the three groups of antisocial and borderline personality disorders and normal individuals in different dimensions of affective and emotional temperament (p<0.01). It seems that individuals with antisocial and borderline personality disorder are different emotionally and affectively. It is suggested that using the results of the present study and with the differential diagnosis of borderline and antisocial personality disorder can be provided an appropriate and comprehensive treatment plan by psychologists and psychiatrists to improve these individuals.
