Some people are concerned that they may have a personality disorder — a pervasive pattern of thoughts and behaviours 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 behaviour that is symptomatic of a more serious concern, such as a personality disorder.
