Excerpt
58% Schizoid was my result.  Just have a question about these figures from a few posts back... .judging by the averages does that mean that to have certain forms of mental illness is actually normal... .Or maybe just more normal than other forms... .Sorry couldn't resist that one! 



Please understand... .  This test does not measure mental illness per se... .just a tendency towards traits that are associated with various personality disorders.  I would think that people scoring quite a bit above average would be more likely to have the associated p.d... .or to have recently had some serious trauma in his/her life.

I did this once before and again now... .w/ similar results in the direction of schizoid.   I can see that in myself, I actually don't like/need that many people and parties or socializing w/ large groups etc., to me is boring and anxiety producing, I don't dig it.  I don't like just hanging a chit chating w/ lots of people, I am a introvert on the myers briggs too... .being around a lot of people drains me, whereas for an extrovert, being around a lot of people energizes them.  It is what it is.

so what this test, I think, suggests to me, is that if I were to deteriorate mentally toward a personality disorder, my PD would likely look schizoid in nature because that's my leaning.  That does seem accurate to me, if I did go down hill mentally or emotionally, I'd probably be doing the hermit/cave dweller thing which is very schizoid.  That's what a PD would  show up as in me.

This is a good point.

If we all went in for a blood test, having "sodium" in our blood is normal. The normal range for blood sodium levels is 135 to 145 milliequivalents per liter (mEq/L).  142 milliequivalents of sodium per liter is normal.  200 milliequivalents is abnormal.

The average values for this test are:



Average

-----------

41%

47%

37%

40%

53%

39%

47%

49%

53%

43%
Cluster

--------------

Narcissistic

Antisocial

Dependent

Obsessive-Compulsive

Schizoid

Avoidant

Borderline

Paranoid  

Schizotypal

Histrionic


So if 2% of the people that take the test are narcissists, that would suggest that the rest of the people scored around 40 on average.

So as JK pointed out, it's the values significantly above the average that should be more concerning.

And remember, a PD has to do with lifelong tendencies - not acute situational stress.

I scored low in everything, the highest ranking was Schizoid  at 26 percent. You know, had I taken this a year ago the ratings would have been different.

Thanks to this website my outlook has changed Doing the right thing (click to insert in post) and my optimism has increased.

What a hard year it has been, thanks so much for this venue... this has been a healing experience.

Schizoid 54% (no surprise)

Narcissistic 46% (i'm a little surprised)

Obsessive-Compulsive 46% (well, I put these in order)

Schizotypal 30% (no surprise)

Antisocial 30%

Dependent 30%

Paranoid 22%

Avoidant 22%

Histrionic 18%

Borderline 10% (I'm surprised this isn't higher)

Well I've got eccentric, dramatic and anxious in the top three.

Hey, does that mean I'm well balanced?

I think the bottom two are based on my current feelings, which I guess are now strongly integrated into my belief system - interesting. Have had dealings, plural, with histrionic traits and these types make the schizoid in me want to run for the hills. Borderline traits just confuse me and make me feel sad for all the pain of the human condition.

I didn't think of copying and pasting my scores, but I certainly remember the highest 58% was narcissistic, followed by schizoid. It's a wonder I get invited anywhere.

Funny, that the more I've realized what a doormat I've been and decided to change, the more my test would probably reflect this extreme result. Swung too much the other direction? Oops.

First thing I looked at was if I had BPD, and seeing it almost none, I felt I aced it.

I tried to be brutally honest and I did the test twice to make sure.

Please tell me to take these results with a pinch of salt! I seem to have inherited the worst traits of all of my relatives. (Although my dad is schizophrenic and I am low on schizotypal so I suppose that is at least something!)

Thank God personality disorders are under-diagnosed in the UK, else it looks like I'd be locked up! Laugh out loud (click to insert in post)

I thought I was making good progress with my issues but obviously not that good.

Sorry to be facetious, I am a bit alarmed at my scores!

I don't feel I'm "uncomfortable in close relationships" nor have "narrow range of emotional expression". People just usually find me odd because I don't think or express like them (my perception and their words - data gathered during my 16 years of school and beyhond them) or even care for the same things they do.

I think there is a problem with this test that once you have worked really hard for a lot of time on some problematic trait like At_Bay being doormat or me being paranoid then you become more aware and you may overshoot in a little in reality and even more so in your own perception. You have the spotlight squarely aimed at this area and you watch it very closely - this can't be irrelevant for a self assessment.

I'm not getting it, who's score should I copy and paste?

Something I've taken before. Trait-wise, I think this particular test tends to be pretty close to indicating specific disorders. Interesting for me, is that HPD, Dependent, and Antisocial traits are all lower than the last time I took this (which was January of last year.) Schizoid/Schizotypal traits are a little higher. Apparently I am embracing my inner (and sometimes outer) weirdo.

... .Like the author of the test, I don't really think of Schizoid or Schizotypal personality as being "disordered." There's nothing wrong with being kind of weird, and expressing oneself differently.

I scored:

Paranoid   22%   49%

Schizoid   22%   53%

Schizotypal   18%   53%

Antisocial   14%   47%

Borderline   30%   47%

Histrionic   26%   43%

Narcissistic   38%   41%

Avoidant   18%   39%

Dependent   22%   37%

Obsessive-Compulsive  14%   40%

I'm surprised my highest score is in narcissism. I guess the average of other test takers is 41, but still.  I don't know if I trust the accuracy of the test, but fun to do. 

I just had a series of personality/interest/trauma testing done at the request of my old therapist, haven't gotten the results yet.  I'm very curious to see what they have to tell me.

In green is what I copied & pated from the test results. I'm on the left going down & on the right is the average.

This means I am under average for everything except Narcissism Where I'm five per cents above & that can't be statistically significant (it is a long way from 46% to 100%).

As with when I did the MMPI at uni years ago, I am low on paranoid. Thought I'd wised up. Maybe I should be more suspicious.

Schizoid came in at 66% followed by Schizotypal at 58%.  Not too terribly surprising given where I am in my life right now. 

I think I must be reverting back to the coping mechanisms I had growing up (to escape from the FOO madness I would hide out in my room)

Somewhat alarming that I scored that high on Schizoid, but not really surprising since I know I am an introvert by nature and dislike large crowds and social gatherings.  Also I bet it would be a lot lower if I take this when Im out of the relationship with the uBPDw.

At least this note was enouraging: "Author Note:I don't think Schizoid personality is a valid disorder, some of the smartest people in history were schizoid because they occupied a remote end of the intelligence bell curve."

Not sure the point is ever to worry

Some of us are gonna worry no matter what.  

Yes, I've done this before and also come out highest on the Narcissistic.

Interesting that we're part of a minority here (as far as being secondary nons) and we both scored highest in that category.

How very intriguing... .

 DreamGirl

(How did Skippy rank?)

I just took the test finally and I, too ranked highest in Narcissistic.  ?  But I also came a close second in Antisocial... .which is actually quite hilarious to me since I'm actually the opposite of anti social... .
