How messed up are you?
Published on August 3, 2004 By CS Guy In Personal Relationships
So here's another fun online quiz. This one measures your personality disorders.

Here's my results:
    Disorder | Rating
    Paranoid: Low
    Schizoid: Low
    Schizotypal: Low
    Antisocial: Low
    Borderline: Low
    Histrionic: Low
    Narcissistic: Moderate
    Avoidant: Low
    Dependent: Low
    Obsessive-Compulsive: Low


Heh. Seems I'm kinda self-centered and arrogant. I'll buy that.

The friend that sent this to me opined that they could save a lot of people some time if they just automatically filled in "Yes" if you answer "Female" to the first question. Of course I would never suggest such a thing!

The avoidant and dependent, I already knew about myself.....I don't buy the histrionic at all...and schizotypal...well, some of it sounds like me, but most of it doesn't.....so who knows?

Wow, for once a test I didn't want to rate highly on.

Narcissitic is inaccurate, I think; avoidant is true, as is obsessive-compulsive. I think the higher results are because it's really late and I'm in a crappy mood. Maybe.

I realise this was just a bit of fun but I have noticed this problem with psychology before during my studies at Uni: They ask you "Have you ever exaggerated illness?" and you say yes because a/ you called in sick last week to stay home and finish off an assignment and b/ once when you felt nauseous and wanted your Mum to look after you you told her on the phone that you had just thrown up... and suddenly you're histrionic. And the definition of histrionic: "They may dress provacatively or exaggerate illnesses in order to gain attention.". I told them that! Sorry I'm ranting way too much when this is meant to be fun. But what do you expect? I'm histrionic and schizotypal!

I think that the long version of this with multiple choice answers might be a little more accurate, but hey! I am the 21st century schizoid man. Well I am a Gemini. : )
