I scored highest on Schizoid. But I scored above 55 on both paranoid and... .very eerily... .Borderline.

65 Schizoid, 58 Paranoid, 58 Borderline.

Schizoid though... .I suck at expressing feelings and I like having my time alone.

Borderline though... .that one sorta frightens me a bit.

When I first took this quiz - I don't know maybe a year ago - I definitely scored high as a Narcissist.  Since then I have become so much more humble.  However, the histrionic aspects still ring true for me today.  I see that my way of connecting with people is through my crisis.  I don't know how to have positive conversation.  I only talk about the negative.  I think I don't believe the good aspects of my life are actually that good - so good they are worth sharing.  But certainly there is more to good conversation than the good or bad "news" of my life!  I need to learn how to talk to people.  For real.  I wish I could just make simple conversation about beer, movies, comedy, current events.  Whatever.  I grew up completely out of touch with pop culture - and am not at all in touch today.  I feel that limits me a LOT.   :'(  It makes me sad.

Dependent narcissist then, here I am. I wasn't sure where to start on the PI board but I just couldn't resist this test! It's maybe not the best starting point but it got me in.

Been thinking recently I need to face up to some narcissistic traits and I was just looking back at some old texts between me and exBPD- I was shocked how needy I appear. There was a massive dependency going on which makes my stomach squirm.

Just did this out of interest and do quite agree with the results.

Top 3:

Schizotypal    62%

Avoidant    54%

Obsessive-Compulsive    46%

Excerpt
Individual is uncomfortable in close relationships

Check.

Excerpt
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.

Check. Although mainly in r/s to uBPDh. Working on this one a lot lately.

Excerpt
Core issue is mental and behavioral rigidity/inflexibility.

Have to unfortunately agree with this. I am not the greatest with compromise. I like things my way. It hurts my r/s with my H sometimes.

I'm not very far on my journey to recovery, so it will be interesting to see, how these traits will, or if they will, change when I keep working on my emotional health and maturity, self-esteem and codependency issues.

Struggling & BPDmagnet1 - Before you start jumping to conclusions please know that taking these kinds of tests when you are traumatized can skew results.  Some of the results maybe correct and a stable account of your personality while others maybe situational.  The test can be a platform to start from.

If you are worried it is something you can bring up with a therapist.  I know it can be hard to look at some of our not so nice qualities.  We all have them and acknowledging a problem is a great way to fix it.

Yes, I told myself it's just a rough test done over the internet, not a diagnosis.  It still freaked me out a little bit.

I mentioned the results to my therapist.

She said "You are NOT borderline.  You are as solid as a rock.  You have your emotions, but you are a rock."

Ha ha.  Maybe that's sort of a compliment.  I took it that way.

I can see myself being paranoid at this point, but only because of an 11yr BPD relationship and a short lived NPD relationship shortly thereafter, so I am a bit untrusting of others in romantic relationships at the moment, of which I have decided against right now anyway!  I trust people who have earned it!

Another thing I found interesting is that the old me (before almost a year of reflection, therapy, and working on my own issues), would have scored much higher on the avoident scale.

My highest were 1. Obsessive/compulsive 54% and 2. Schizoid 50%.  Everything else below 35% and extremely low in dependency and dramatic disorders.

So basically, I lean towards control by keeping an emotional distance from others.  When I see this result, I agree with it: I like to keep my life simple on the outside.  I think this comes with age and maturity, as things have not always been this way.    There is not enough time in my day, as a mother, to give to many people other than my family.

Also, I like being a bit obsessive about certain things, because there are certain things that I like to do very well.  It is important for me to be good at some things.

I remember doing this test over a year ago which was a very emotional time for me personally.

Will be very interesting to compare them now i am much more stable.

My current results seem quite low in most areas except OCD. Im happy with that but have the presence of mind to acknowledge i need to still work on myself.



^^^ Click image to view results^^^

If i was to express the OCD, id possibly put it down to the 'active' part of NC.

Trying to achieve a positive from a negative action, kind of goes against the grain of who i am.

That said, im happy to have changed my mindset, my thoughts and it proves to me i can build my character beyond what it is.

Realistic thinking though tells me that someone could do that test 3 times in a week and get 3 different results dependant on how they are feeling at that particular moment in time.

It may be an idea to gauge how you are feeling when doing the test and then compare them with earlier/later results.

The test results above for me... .  current status... .  

Feeling quite content.

Generally happy & smiley.

A little bunged up.

Tough and tiring day at work but not stressful.

So on the whole, not firing on all cylinders with a little bit of flu but stress free and happy getting on with daily life as it happens.

Avoidant, sounds about right.

I think of myself as having pretty high narcissism, but I've taken this test several times and always got 17-22 on N.  Maybe I'm off base or just not answering the questions right

Well, it looks like I am pretty paranoid, narcissistic, very schizotypal, and a tad bit antisocial.

I have severe PTSD, and a bit of humanity has been lost. I used to have many borderline traits, but those are gone, because I have practiced vipassana and mindfulness meditation for 14 years. Celiac disease greatly exasterbated the moodswings.  This is the only thing---and it is similar to DBT, that helped. 

I know I am damaged, nervous system wise. But oddly, I do have a lot of empathy and have a lot of wonderful relationships, so who cares?

I can be counted on, and have no doubts at this point.

OCD doesn't surprise me in any way, shape, or form and neither does schizotypal to a degree... .  or even antisocial.  The way I answered the 'your group/community' questions probably factored into that, too.  EDIT:  I did the poll and added in OCD and Schizotypal even though it was 54%.  Close enough to 55% IMO.

This is kinda weird. I remember taking this test like 1-2 years ago. And I was heading towards histronic and borderline which freaked me out. Now I'm totally not either one. I'm more antisocial and OCD... .  How can it change like that? I guess that makes me really messed up... .  LOL
