"Is Anakin Skywalker suffering from borderline personality disorder?"

Today's lead article in Qmedicus: Psychiatry is this:

Is Anakin Skywalker suffering from borderline personality disorder?

Anakin Skywalker, one of the main characters in the "Star Wars" films, meets the criteria for borderline personality disorder (BPD). This finding is interesting for it may partly explain the commercial success of these movies among adolescents and be useful in educating the general public and medical students about BPD symptoms.

I haven't been able to get hold of the full text yet, but I have a question:

Maybe Anakin's symptoms were caused by his growing up a slave and a child labourer?
