Psych Central
Personality Disorders Test

Based upon the Diagnostic & Statistical Mental of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition

Personality Some people are concerned that they may have a personality disorder -- a pervasive pattern of thoughts and behaviors that significantly impact the way a person relates to others and the world around them.

Our personality disorders test is meant to examine your agreement with symptoms associated with the 10 recognized personality disorders. Personality disorders are different than your core personality. Your personality is made up of different facets that can be measured by a personality test. Everyone has a personality, but not everyone has a personality disorder.

Typically, general personality tests measure five factors: extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, emotional stability (also referred to as "neuroticism"), and intellect/imagination (also referred to as "openness"). Please remember that these are only personality traits or preferences -- they do not predetermine every action you prefer in every situation. This test does not measure these aspects. Rather, it measures dysfunctional behavior that is symptomatic of a more serious concern, such as a personality disorder.

This test consists of just 80 questions and takes about 10 minutes for most people to complete. Answer as many questions as you can to get the most accurate score possible. Your answers are held in strictest confidence and are not shared with anyone. At the end of the test, you will receive a free, comprehensive report about your vulnerability to having symptoms associated with a personality disorder.


First, let's get started with some basic demographic information about you...
