POLARIZED THINKING is simply a way that our mind convinces us of something that isn’t really true. These inaccurate thoughts are usually used to reinforce negative thinking or emotions — telling ourselves things that sound rational and accurate, but really only serve to keep us in a ‘childish’ mindset unconscious and unaware of all our possibilities.
POLARIZED THINKING Defined:
Polarized Thinking (false choice, dichotomy, primal thinking, false dilemma, black and white thinking):
This is the misconception of thinking that things are black or white, good or bad, all or nothing. This mistake thinking style can lead to unbending and detrimental rules based on primal thinking (when it is efficient to compress complex information into simple-minded categories for rapid decision making during times of stress, conflict, or threat…fight or flight).
Polarized thinking can also lead to injurious forms of perfectionism. The reality often lies in the sizeable middle ground between these two polarized extremes or poles. Recognize and reject the false dichotomy. The words “either / or” are a reliable signal alerting us to a false dichotomy.
POLARIZED THINKING is a possible symptom of Borderline, Narcissistic and Avoidant Personality Disorders.
If you believe you or someone you love match this criteria, take a deep breath & don’t panic. Many people find themselves matching about 70% of criteria for different disorders in DSM IV, yet they don’t have any ‘personality disorders’. And even then only about 1/3 of individuals that are diagnosed with a personality disorder by qualified professionals are believed to actually have the disorder.
What is POLARIZED THINKING (and where in the mind)?
Going deeper…these are unconscious beliefs located in the subconscious…a form of arrested emotional development in childhood that has continued into adult years. Unconscious beliefs that are programmed responses in the fight-flight-freeze response.
Where does POLARIZED THINKING come from?
POLARIZED THINKING is being stuck in (or Anchored to) an emotional level of development from childhood experience also called “resource states”. Out of these ‘negative’ beliefs comes an underlying & unconscious commitment. I.E. I’m not good enough, I was a mistake, I’m dumb, etc.…
Anchoring to a ‘resource state’ and POLARIZED THINKING
To describe this classical conditioning behavior called anchoring in a human context. We must understand and take note that as we go through life we build a lot of anchors for various responses.
Examples: How many of us feel a certain way when we hear "Our song", or have a sense of dread when we hear a certain tone in a parent's voice?
Anchors are learned responses…and the amazing thing about an anchor is that it is usually learned in result of a single learning experience (psychotherapists call the resource state). It is normally the case that there is one defining incident that creates the anchor program in the subconscious. Then the learned response is repeated and conditioned.
Pavlov was a scientist in the 1800’s who discovered that behaviors could be triggered by signals. Pavlov tested ringing a bell while simultaneously presenting dogs with food. Before long, the dogs ‘learned’ to salivate to the sound of the bell, without the food. The bell became a ‘trigger’ for the response of salivation. Splitting is conditioned in much the same way.
Arrested Emotional Development and POLARIZED THINKING
Central to personality disorder problems, is “arrested emotional development”, which is triggered by parental neglect and/or abuse in infancy and childhood (birth-18 years old).
NOTE: Adult development can be accomplished, but it takes time and treatment to mend the core trauma wounds that are inherently at the root of this dysfunction of emotional development.
Normal Adult Thinking verses POLARIZED THINKING
Critical adult thinking involves…logical reality based thinking and reasoning…(including skills such as comparison, classification, sequencing, cause/effect, patterning, webbing, analogies, deductive & inductive reasoning, forecasting, planning, hypothesizing, & critiquing).
This brings us to “The Eight Psychosocial Stages of Human Development”
Dr. Erik Erikson, the famous psychologist (1902-1994) who proposed these Stages found that...
…Unresolved Childhood Developmental Tasks “leave a life-long residue of emotional immaturity.”
In other words…
You’re original, immature, unidentified Subconscious Issues Are controlling your behaviors—and even your thinking...
So now that you know what POLARIZED THINKING is, how do you go about undoing (or resolving) this subconscious program?

Borderline Individuality Issue At A Glance
Borderline personality disorder is a personality disorder recognized by continually difficult methods of considering, feeling, and conversing.
BPD is associated with risky self-image, thoughts, acting, and with regards to others.

Therefore, experts perform a mental-health appointment that looks for the use of the indicators previously described and usually discover the individuals record for any disease or other psychological problem that may show the signs of the disorder.
Psychotherapy techniques that have been helpful for BPD include dialectical perform treatments, mental personality treatments, public treatments, and psychoanalytic mental therapy.
The use of mental drugs like anti-depressants, feelings stabilizers, and antipsychotics may be useful in dealing with some of the the signs of BPD but do not handle the condition in its whole.

While they the signs of BPD tends to reduce over years for many individuals, how well or badly individuals with BPD success over time seems to be affected by the degree of the indicators, the peoples current personal interactions, whether or not the victim has a record of being taken advantage of as a child, as well as whether or not the person gets appropriate therapy.Steady career or school position once the signs of BPD decrease (remit) tends to secure BPD patients from being affected by a future backslide.
