Personality Disorders


#1

Have you ever seen those tests that rate you low-severe on criteria for each personality disorder? I know those can’t replace a clinician’s diagnosis but I find them very interesting to give an idea of what traits you fit. I’ve struggled a lot lately with feeling like I’m both borderline and histrionic (ive read most people who have a personality disorder actually have multiple), as I’ve analyzed my behavior and thought patterns and how i react and interact. I also feel more hesitant to recognize them as problems compared to psychotic symptoms or anxiety which i can easily write off as being mental problems needing treatment, which I guess fits the typical frame a personality disorder. I also fit a lot of traits for schizotypal, but I think anyone with a psychotic disorder would and thats why theyre mutually exclusive diagnoses. Apparently personality disorders taken as a whole are the most common psychiatric diagnosis, even more than depression or anxiety, so I would imagine atleast some people on a forum of mentally ill people would suffer from a personality disorder? Have you ever been diagnosed/suspected that you have one? Where do you fall on the personality disorder tests?

From similarminds:

A little surprised at the schizotypal result, but I’m feeling pretty even-keeled right now, and I also suspect people who consider themselves odd are more likely to be drawn to this test than others.

Not at all surprised about the avoidant result, except that perhaps it’s lower than expected.

If I had taken this between the ages of 14 and 22, my borderline/histrionic results would have been off the charts.

My pdoc made me do the real tests with a therapist and I scored high on schizotypal, paranoid and schizoid.

:thinking:
i feel like scoring high on any cluster a pd’s is a given if you have schizophrenia/schizoaffective disorder, and i think my ocd gives a false positive for ocpd (i dont see the obsessions as good or neccessary, theyre a problem and bother me), but i score fairly high for cluster b pd’s except for antisocial…


#5

Did you get this from similarminds? I am keeping it forever :joy_cat:


#6

I was diagnosed schizotypal before schizophrenia.


#7

What a lot of war of words! I don’t know the definitions of any of them except paranoid. And all those terms are making me paranoid …:slightly_smiling_face:


#8

Thats weird i scored high for borderline and low for schizotypal…

I was diagnosed avoidant before everything else.


#11

I scored low/average for schizoid and schizotypal. Maybe I’m not schizophrenic after all? Are they related?

#13

how do you do this?


#14

I was wondering the same. I mean, I’ve already been diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic, but this makes me very curious, but very paranoid at the same time. But more curious than not


#15

Dictator seems pretty cool. :thinking:


#16

Yeah, but then maybe also international spy? Maybe history professor/mercenary…

Bounty hunter is both sexy and adventurous.

Watch out - my partner took it and hers were all “kindergarten teacher” and “stay at home mom” and “receptionist” and “wedding planner”.

Need no more prove to belong to this community lol. Job suggestions are “very accurate”… Though not every fits. Baker and horse trainer couldn’t be more inaccurate. :smiley:
