At first, even knowing this is a basic type thing, I looked at some of the scores (which were pretty high for narcissm) and with the way my brain works I started to freak a bit.

A lot of people (well, exPDw and such) call me egotistical and all that jazz.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder - individual has a grandiose view of themselves, a need for admiration, and a lack of empathy that begins by early adulthood and is present in various situations. These individuals are very demanding in their relationships. Core issue is entitlement.

I don't believe I have a grandiose view of myself, but I do think highly of what I know I can do (and be)... . and I typically can pull off most things I try and pull off.  So... . they can bite me on that one.  As far as need for admiration - I like admiration, sure.  But I don't need it.  I just like being acknowledged for doing what I do.

I have TOTAL empathy for others.  But... . it is difficult to move me  to empathy when a person is just being stupid.  I can't think on those levels most times.  Or if I do, it comes off like I'm talking down to someone... . which I don't mean for it to.

As for being demanding in a relationship - well... . a little.  But not the way it sounds.  I mean, there are things which are right and things which are wrong... . it's called boundaries.  I'm very (or try to be) clear as to my boundaries and the demanding part comes out when someone is trying to blast by them.  But I don't see how that is a bad thing.

I dont' think I'm entitled - but I do think... . okay, let me say it this way.  If you agree to do x-y-z if I do a-b-c, and I gladly do a-b-c... . but you don't do x-y-z... . how the heck does that make me have a sense of entitlement?

What?

Paranoid       18%    50%

Schizotypal    38% 56%

Dependent    22% 44%


Obsessive-Compulsive    26%    45%

My new results compared to when I took this in November. I highlighted the significant increases. I wonder what this means? Maybe I should take the test every week to see if this is an anomaly, or if it indicates change. Two data points spaced months apart may not be analyzable. I wonder if it has anything to do with now being separated, and forced Hermitude now that I am only a half-time father  :'(

The great increases in Schizoid and Anti-social may make sense under the new reality.

I embrace my OCD.

It does not 'rule' me... . and I do not let it 'own' me.

BUT I can out work people 1/2 my age because I embrace my OCD and make it work for me!

The rest of my scores were WELL below 55. Only a couple in the low 40's!

My results!

I'm totally open to comments... . I'll add more detail later... . but I can see it... . the OCD thing.

I am willing to argue till I am blue in the face about why I do things and how they are "better". 

In my work I spend a lot of time leading process improvement efforts... . and I am very successful and finding and keeping a team on task with successful processes.

I scored 56% Schizoid, 41 % Narcissistic and 68 % Obsessive Compulsive

The rest of the scores were in the 20 % and 30 % range.

Narcissistic traits - 1 % above the norm. Not surprising - I am quite demanding and feel entitled to things, because I'm a really decent guy. Genuine, you know!

Schizoid -  I am mildly depressed - as shown by the Depression test - but starting to feel better.

Obsessive - Compulsion : I am a perfectionist. And definitely too rigid / inflexible.

Now that I know - I'm going to start working on them!

I'll start with - SMILING MORE! Not being so rigid. That's a good place to start Doing the right thing (click to insert in post)

Hmmm, 47 was my highest score. Antisocial. I am not so sure of that one. Antisocial in terms of introversion and or shyness I 'd buy. However in terms of harming others,  I don't think fits. I can see Schizod and Avoidant, my next two highest scores. Both were mid to low thirities. In general I feel pretty ackward in social settings

Obsessive-Compulsive  61%

"Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder - individual is preoccupied with orderliness, perfectionism, and control at the expense of flexibility, openness, and efficiency. Core issue is mental and behavioral rigidity/inflexibility."

Which is not a *huge* shock to me. I like order. I do and I always have. But at the same time I understand and accept that life is messy. I've learned to roll with it over the years. Not saying that the messy parts don't raise my hackles... .but ah, whaddya gonna do? Could get mad and sulky but why? Life's better when you're laughing, right? So laugh at the mess, then clean it up! Laugh out loud (click to insert in post) My son tells me that I have OCD... .I tell him no I have CDO... .which is like OCD but the letters are in the correct order.

I think the worst thing about it all is I'm really hard on myself. Really hard. Especially when I know I could have done better. or should have known I could have done better. Also, it makes making decisions really hard. Sometimes damn near impossible. All the what if's really get to me. I'm trying to combat this type of thinking, but sometimes just don't know how... .intellectually, yes, I can think my way thru is but emotionally that's a whole different story. I don't know how to handle that part of the 'what ifs' it's scary and keeps me sorta frozen.

Panda's top 3 highest scores... .

Schizoid Personality Disorder - individual generally detached from social relationships, and shows a narrow range of emotional expression in various social settings; emotional zombies who stopped feeling due to trauma(s) and/or can't feel due to organic depression

Schizoid... .I will say that I am an introverted person and tend to have a few very close friends vs having a large social circle and I can be uncomfortable in some social settings.  I have also experienced some depression in my past.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder - individual has a grandiose view of themselves, a need for admiration, and a lack of empathy that begins by early adulthood and is present in various situations. These individuals are very demanding in their relationships. Core issue is entitlement.

Narcissistic Personality I would not have expected.  I feel that I am very empathetic and do not believe I am entitled in any way and I very definitely don't have a grandiose view of myself. As for a need for admiration I really think most people would like a little of that (if deserved).

Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder - individual is preoccupied with orderliness, perfectionism, and control at the expense of flexibility, openness, and efficiency. Core issue is mental and behavioral rigidity/inflexibility.

I am definitely Obsessive-Compulsive I will own this one! But not to the extreme. I like orderliness and control (not a perfectionist) but I don't think I'm completely inflexible and think I actually create efficiency.

Well there you have it Panda's scores and self analysis  Smiling (click to insert in post) It will be interesting to run this by those closest to me and see what they think.

I understand why I was higher on Narcissistic than anything else - I'm an INFJ and trust myself and my conclusions pretty soundly. =) I will point out that there were a couple of questions that said things like "I need to be better-looking than others" - to which I give a hearty no, not at all, I don't - and then questions like "I like being better-looking than others." Which, yes, if I'm being honest, it is gratifying to be able to notice that, by comparison, I am attractive. It does not make me happy that others are less; but it does make me happy to appreciate what I have.

So, given my bent to see myself as the most important awesome person named Me ever... .hahaha... .I will just continue to make it my mission to help others find out how to embrace how they are the best most important awesome person named Them.

Paranoid   61%

Schizoid   53%

Borderline   52%

Histrionic   60%

Avoidant   69%

Dependent   67%


So, these were my results and I can definitely agree with them.  I sort of feel that any type of self-report is suspect because the way I see myself is often not how others see me.  A lot of the times, I wish I had a friend to score the test for me.  There are plenty of times I think I stick to a schedule, for example, when I really, seriously don't and I have NO IDEA that I am a terrible scheduler unless someone has pointed it out to me.  But I do usually feel as though the external world is threatening.  I do have a problem repressing emotion and have often felt like an emotionless zombie.  And I have the tendency to overreact to people and to seek attention.  (It's strange that I have both the Schizoid emotional zombie thing going on while ALSO SEEKING ALL THE ATTENTION.  No wonder being around people is so tiring for me!)  And I do feel so inadequate around everyone else but at the same time, I'm so scared to be alone.  All of these things together feed into my eating disorder.  I have a BPDm  (not sure about the abbreviation- my mom has BPD) and it makes sense that I'd inherit some of her behaviors.  This was an eye-opener!  Thanks for sharing the test!

Hello all,

I've done the test about four times since I found it and my results have been consistent. For me the antisocial score set me thinking because I know for sure that before I met and married my dBPDh I don't think this would have been so high. My reasoning is that I now choose to be far less sensitive to peoples needs after spending so long trying to fix my h, I know I consciously shy away from engaging with people on an emotional level. I feel as though I want to keep all my caring and kindness for myself. I suppose I'm protecting myself from any possibility of emotional burnout again. I am definitely much more selfish than I used to be.

hi, i took this test here in the past and i'm pretty sure i posted the results , but i can't find it.     ?  can anyone help me find that post?

i took it again yesterday.  was the reporting option of "i did not score 55 or higher in any category" a new option or was it always there? 

if i recall, back in 2012 and 2013 i did score much higher in some of these, like N, BPD, etc which really had freaked me out.  my hope, at the time, was that it was just fleas from my xBPDgf.   my baggage   

looks like that was true b/c this time i did not score over 55 in any category.  question:  does that mean i'm "normal" now?  IOW, are the test scores based on "optimal" results from healthy people or "average" results of whoever has taken this particular test?

Antisocial                             35%         46%

Borderline                             27%         45%

Histrionic                             21%         52%

Dependent                     22%        44%

Obsessive-Compulsive     63%        45%



Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder - individual is preoccupied with orderliness, perfectionism, and control at the expense of flexibility, openness, and efficiency. Core issue is mental and behavioral rigidity/inflexibility.

Schizoid Personality Disorder - individual generally detached from social relationships, and shows a narrow range of emotional expression in various social settings; emotional zombies who stopped feeling due to trauma(s) and/or can't feel due to organic depression

Schizotypal Personality Disorder - individual is uncomfortable in close relationships, has thought or perceptual distortions, and peculiarities of behavior; preoccupied with seeing themselves and/or the world as strange/odd



The (3) area's I scored the highest marks, are very true, based upon the above explanations.

The OCD I have 'bent' to make it work for me... .and every day, I am becoming less and less routine/rigid and more flexible. This is something I am making great progress and steps to eliminating the bad side of OCD.

The (2) Schizoid and Schixotypal descriptions are high, right now, because of the PTSD... .BUT... .those numbers will come down with time and healing.

I am VERY pleased with my numbers (even thought I know it's just an internet thing).

I am healing!

I decided to take the plunge and try the test.

My highest score was 69% on Avoidant Personality Disorder (average is 48%), followed by 57% on Dependent Personality Disorder (average is 44%). I scored below average on BPD. I was surprised by this because I really relate to the push-pull dynamics in BPD. However, looking at the explanations of my two highest scores, these do fit nicely with my tendency to push people away when relationships get close.

Avoidant Personality Disorder - individual is socially inhibited, feels inadequate, and is oversensitive to criticism. Core issue is an inability to resolve their codependent need for connection with their codependent fear of rejection and/or discomfort/anxiety around others.

Dependent Personality Disorder - individual shows an extreme need to be taken care of that leads to fears of separation, and passive and clinging behavior. Core issue is the need to be parented by others (i.e. avoid growing up / becoming self-sufficient).

My results need to be read in conjunction with my existing diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome.

interesting that i didnt get an especially low score in anything. probably because the majority of questions i answered in the middle. i have trouble with the black and white nature of so many personality questionnaires.

hey lifewriter,

thanks for asking. to answer your question, honestly no, not really. i think my results mainly reflect choosing the in the middle option on the majority of questions (especially given my range for all of them is 43-46). they are relatively accurate, but i would personally skew them a bit; lower in some areas (i rate myself low on antisocial and histrionic, and paranoid in particular) and higher or about the same in some areas like avoidant, dependent, and obsessive compulsive. i dont believe i meet the criteria for any of these disorders though there are aspects i can identify with; they dont much relate to my struggles.

Here's me:

Paranoid   25%   50%

Schizoid   31%   40%

Schizotypal   53%   56%

Antisocial   52%   46%

Borderline   36%   45%

Histrionic   26%   52%

Narcissistic   47%   40%

Avoidant   20%   48%

Dependent   22%   44%

Obsessive-Compulsive   32%   45%

I tried to play it straight and answer honestly, and how much can you really self-diagnose with 60 questions, but I agree with the higher scores in schizotypal, antisocial and narcissistic I guess, the way I put it I march to my own drummer, tend to be insensitive to others at times and definitely see things from angles not a lot of others do.  It's good to get the feedback as a tool to focus on any changes we may want to make, the juice here for me is to focus on other's needs more.

I scored 81% in Dependent, which makes complete sense since I am diagnosed with DPD.   

My next highest was Obsessive-Compulsive at 50%.

I test out as an avoidant schizoid dependent. Kind of like that weird kid everybody liked to tease when they were little. Some things never change.
