That was an interesting test. I scored highest in avoidant and definitely agree with that assessment. I also know that I likely have some borderline and dependent traits. The high score on obsessive-compulsive surprises me since I tend to not care about having perfect order all the time.

I'm an artist though.  We base our entire sense of self on being able to see the world in weird ways.  I'm not surprised by the Schizotypal score at all.  The Avoidant score is surprising though.  I am very close with my friends and family.  I just don't like crowds of strangers very much.

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.

That's what I wrote in July 2012, very soon after I first arrived here. I've added the red for my new score. I purposefully did the test again now without thinking or without referring back to when I did it or what the results were.

According to this test, I have become more avoidant and more borderline and more anti- social. I have become significantly less narcissistic. I guess in reality I am pretty scared of where I am emerging, feel as if everything is pretty raw and a less controlled/ controlling me is much more vulnerable. So I suppose it makes some sense. Where will I be in another year?

I scored very low on everything except for paranoid and Avoidant. Very high on Avoidant, it's making me think I have this disorder. And here I thought I was just Codependent. I Avoid anything that hurts, seems like I found the perfect relationship to stay in my Avoidant mind. Avoiding intimacy with anyone because it's not really possible to be completely intimate with someone with BPD and that's who I fell for.

It's good to look at yourself. These tests can be helpful to get insights. Don't be to bothered about the outcome, because it is just a 'do-it-yourself-test'. No need to conclude you have a disorder. Just look at the outcome, look at yourself and ask yourself the question whether it's true or not.

If so, ask yourself the question if you want to change. If so, how are you going to do that!



About the avoidant PD: 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.


It isn't a strange thing an avoident person hooks up with a BPD and probably stays hooked a long time. Well, because I did and I scored 70% on avoident, it seems logical to me

Thanks, I know it's just a internet test. I started to read about the disorder and I really do think I have it. Not extreme but I've not been happy my whole life and it's because of this. I just never knew what it was called. I didn't think being extremely shy was a disorder. I thought I was just shy. It's making me look at myself clearer and why I do the things I do or don't do more like. I've been Avoidant my whole life. I always felt different than other people, so much anxiety attached to everything for me, especially social situations. What has always been fun for other people, has always been frightening to me. I want so badly to have relationships with people but I have no idea how to make them. My husband is very outgoing and liked me from the get go and made it clear. I can see why I would be extremely attracted to him now.

Actually I scored under 55 for all of them, but I was pretty close to it on the Narcissist one, which fits.  Smiling (click to insert in post)

I have completed some of these tests before, and can often see that I may well have tendencies that appear Borderline, (fear of abandonment for sure). In the past, these tendencies may well have been more noticeable, but I kind of feel like I am changing as a person, hopefully for the better. It is a lifelong process of evolving ourselves to our very best, and according to some of the behaviourists, the thing we are all searching for, is self-enlightenment on our journey or ultimately after we have had it, (on our death beds).

On the triangle, the first level is survival, that being our shelter, and food etc. Basic needs for survival, somewhere to live that is relatively safe, and food/nourishment.

It has been so long since I studied Psychology, that I ironically have forgotten the middle of that triangle, and the name of the behavioural therapist that created it, all I know is that at the base level, we are in need of the basics first, and the end, (the very tip of the triangle) is self-enlightenment, after we have achieved all the other things in our lives, or at the same time, as each person is different in their ability to process/navigate through life.

I only hope I can get through all this alive... .

Paranoid        62%    

Schizoid        38%    

Schizotypal    66%    

Antisocial       50%    

Borderline       46%    

Histrionic       30%    

Narcissistic       10%    

Avoidant       54%    

Dependent       38%    

Obsessive-Compulsive    34%    

I'm very supprised about that 10% in Narcissistic. I was sure it would be much higher. I have changed, that much is for sure. High paranoid comes from my old self too, I seriously don't know how I now react in different situations because I haven't been in them. Schizotypal is very much ME, and I'm not a bit conserned about it.

There were some questions I did not understand mainly due the language used.

Well, all below average. Four scores of only 10%. And narcissistic highest at 38%. I had expected to score much higher on that one. Second highest avoidant and schizoid at 30%. Sounds right.

i took this test right after i first got here ~ the results from the first time scared me!   i'm hoping, since they've improved, that some of these results are just the  PD traits fleas and PTSD from the emotional abuse that comes from being involved w/a pwBPD for 3-4 yrs.  someone remind me to take this again in abt 3 months, <g>

Ten years ago, maybe less, I thought I had a PD. I had convinced myself I was mostly Schizoid, with Avoidant traits. Certainly when I was a child I had some type of Avoidant attachment style. I guess over the years things got better. Took until I was about 40. Had two kids, partnered with a likely BPD. It made me stronger than I thought I was. I know what's right (when I don't meet those standards, I don't obsess about it, I try to do better the next time), I really don't care what people think (based upon a secure base of core ethics, upon which I judge the correctness of others' opinions... .that and how they run their lives), and I now believe what my long-time friends tell me: that despite a really messed up childhood, I am surprisingly well adjusted :^) Took me a while to accept that.

So I've got some "fleas"   PD traits from my xhwBPD, followed by Avoidant - which is no surprise I'd want to avoid further harm!

Very interesting that all my numbers are pretty close together.  I think I used to be way more avoidant when I cared more about what people thought of me.  I think with all the judgment I've faced over the past couple of years I had to let that go.

I scored highter in Nacrcism than average... but all below 55%. I guess I'm ok with that?

Hi Skip,

I didn't answer your poll correctly because I missed the part at the bottom (which I should have checked) about not scoring 55 or higher.

12% Paranoid

32% Schizoid

27% Schizotypal

19% Antisocial

6% Borderline

2% Histrionic

32% Narcissitic

0% Avoidant

9% Dependent

48% Obsessive- Compulsive

My highest score was in the area of obsessive compulsive and it would probably be higher if I didn't channel that energy in constructive ways.
