This site was posted on the schizoid PD forum. There are tests for all of the PDs, though (and more besides).

Tests

I know these shouldn't be taken too seriously, but I think they can be useful. Anyway, they're fun. ;)

If you want to play, pick a test or two and post your score(s) and verdict(s). I'd be interested to know how much the scores/verdicts match what you expected as well.

I took the four PD tests I thought most likely to give me a +ve result.

Paranoid : 20 ("... indicates that you have ..."). I was expecting this.
Avoidant : 35 (have). Ditto.
Borderline : 31 (may have). I'm a bit surprised by this one - I thought it would be lower.
Narcissistic : 26 (no personality disorder). Slightly (but pleasantly) surprised.

EDIT: Note that the different tests work on different scales.

Antisocial 8 no
Schizotypal 24 may have

Anxiety test: 46
OCD test: 14 (indicative of a moderate obsessive-compulsive disorder - that's a new one to worry about now:hidesbehindsofa:)
Social Anxiety test: 43 (which is severe social anxiety apparently :unsure:)

I feel worse now than I did before. I had no idea I had OCD as well as anxiety...

EDIT: I've just noticed this is in the Personality Disorders forum, and here's me rabbiting on about anxiety-related stuff. Sorry about that monopod. :redface:

No problem! I'm more curious about PDs myself, but anything goes on this thread as far as I'm concerned.

I didn't mean to infect you with extra problems though. Sorry. :doh:

Thanks for sharing this.

For Borderline, Narcisstic, and OCD I got a NO for all of them.

Over a year ago I probably would have gotten a yes on all of them. Three years ago, I definitely would have gotten a yes on all of them.

Three years of therapy and a commitment to stay on medication has helped tremendously. There is hope everyone! : D

I have to say, I was really hoping someone would score higher than me on NPD. :unsure:

It really just seems synonymous with arsehole. :doh:

I don't think I have a problem with empathy though, or that I'm particularly manipulative. I hope.

I wonder why the scoring is so different for all of them eg for BPD I score 31 they tell me I have it, for OCD I score 33 they say I do not.

Someone clever can probably explain it to me.

Yeah, that confused me at first. I think it's just because of the different number of questions on the different tests.

Interestingly, I noticed that you and I both got the same score for BPD but a different 'conclusion'. I'm guessing that must be down to age/sex difference. :shrug:

Whaaaaat??? That's so sexist and ageist of them!!!!!

Maybe it is to do with which questions we ticked strongly agree for? Maybe some are more borderline than others?
