Personality Test

Here's one quiz that I just took. It's called Personality Disorder Test. A personality disorder is basically a set of traits that combine to negatively affect your life. They have a wide range of causes and some are easier to treat than others. This test is set up to look for the ten recongized personality disorders which are Paranoid, Schizoid, Schizotypal, Antisocial, Borderline, Histrionic, Narcissistic, Avoidant, Dependent, and Obsessive-Compulsive.It is meant to help determine whether or not you have a personality disorder. It is not meant to be used as a diagnostic tool, but rather as a tool to give you insight into a potential disorder that may be having a negative impact on your life.

Oh God..look at my fresult. I am high on being Narcissistic. In fact I got my highest point on that character. Ha ha. But it's good to see that I have low level of being paranoid. How about you? Would you like to try the quiz? Click here for the quiz.

I hate these tests to be honest! I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder in 2003 and it just amazes me that websites can come up with these things as though they were meant for a magazine. No reflection on you Boya - I'm not trying to make you feel bad or anything, these things just really offend me and I can't keep my mouth shut about it! It's such a serious disorder that I struggle with daily....

No problem Rain. Actually you gave me another insight of those personality tests we often find on the web. Many people don't know about how serious a personality disorder can be and when I read about how you struggle with it daily, I can imagine you must have put a lot of eefort doing it.

But I do hope you're okay with everything now=)

I'm so glad you understood that! You know it wasn't anger towards you at all. I often think of these quizzes...you never see a "answer these 10 questions to see what kind of cancer you have" or "test if you have multiple sclerosis"...because the mental health disorders are unseen, but they aren't un-real.

Mental health disorders are unseen..I agree with you. Thank you Rain for giving me a new insight of this thing...

If you're interested in a real psychology-based personality test, check out our Personality Patterns app; it provides very detailed feedback in a visually, interactive format, along w/some cool social features. You can also find it on Facebook. On the go? Try it on your iPhone.
