    Default Are you a narcissist? Take the test and find out.

    http://www.counseling-office.com/surveys/test_psychopathy.phtml


    There are strong indications that you might have a psychopathic / antisocial personality disorder.

    You reached 93,75% of Factor 1 which captures the core personality traits of psychopathy that define the interpersonal and affective deficits of this personality disorder (e.g. shallow affect, superficial charm, manipulativeness, lack of empathy) and that are correlated with narcissistic personality disorder, low anxiety, low empathy, low stress reaction and low suicide risk. But Factor 1 is also associated with extraversion and positive affect - affected persons usually score high on scales of achievement and well-being, so some aspects of the personality disorder may even be beneficial for the psychopath (in terms of nondeviant social functioning or if it comes to profit from manipulation or lies).
    You reached 88,89% of Factor 2 which captures the traits of antisocial behavior (e.g. criminal versatility, impulsiveness, irresponsibility, poor behaviour controls, juvenile delinquency) and is associated with reactive anger, social deviance, sensation seeking, anxiety, increased risk of suicide, low socio-economic status, criminality, and impulsive violence.
    You reached 100,00% in other relevant traits that can indicate this personality disorder.
    However, there are disputes over the correct diagnosis of psychopathic resp. antisocial personality disorders, and the standardization of clinical testing for APD/PPD is still in the process.
    Regarding the perspective for psychopathic/antisocial personalities and treatment options, please refer to my article about psychopathy and antisocial behavior in the "Papers" section of my website.

    There are slight differences between the major diagnostic manuals in how to diagnose a narcissistic personality disorder, with the ICD-10 manual stating that a person may only be diagnosed with a Narcissistic Personality Disorder if she/he does not meet the diagnostic criteria for a dissocial (antisocial, psychopathic), histrionic or any of the other personality disorders at the same time. For the DSM-IV manual, there is no such exclusion. It is unusual for NPD personality types to seek therapy, as they unconsciously fear exposure or inadequacy and will usually disdain therapeutic processes or the idea of psychotherapy itself, sabotage the therapeutic process or openly oppose it. Pharmacotherapy is rarely effective.

    So... I guess that having difficulties in establishing relations raises your score quite a bit. I'm essentially very awkward. It seems that questions assume that you are not experiencing awkwardness. I'm not deviant but I like to teach people how to think for themselves (not very often). For me it seems to be the right thing to do. Some notifications are necessary in order to protect them from others.

    psychopathic / antisocial personality disorder.

    If you feel that this positive result might be incorrect because it doesn't match your self-assessment, you may want to try the other self-tests on my website - or even better, seek a professional diagnosis to find out what you may be dealing with. This would also help to find ways to deal with it in the most efficient manner if that turns out necessary.
    But if you feel okay, the others do that with you as well, and you just got all that reconfirmed - congratulations! :-)[G:1]

    My guess is that a lot of people here will have narcissism, due to having low identity and the identity seeking aspect of the personality theory - just look at how raging some people get when you question their type - and also how type questioning is used by people as a method of covert or overt attack your battle types.

    I know that I have strong traits in Cluster A and Cluster C disorders. Cluster B mainly histrionic but still relatively low.
    I think my strongest ones are schizotypal and/or avoidant personalities. Maybe a dash of schizoid and dependent as well. I think I'm quite high in schizotypy although I'm not superstitious but referential thinking is there. It is not about me like in case of being narcissistic because I have hard time at seeing me as focal point of my life. I think therefore I am. I guess you can call that narcissism but it is not certainly fixed on self image... far from it.

    Schizophrenia Test and Early Psychosis Indicator (STEPI) Answers

    Total score of: 92
    (12-156) Higher Levels of Experience Associated With Schizophrenia or Psychotic Disorders, But Mitigating Factors


    Your answers to this schizophrenia screening test fall into a range which suggests higher levels of experiences which might, under the careful evaluation of a psychiatrist, be considered clinically significant. However, you also reported one or more of the following mitigating factors which ordinarily preclude (or at least complicate) a diagnosis of schizophrenia or other psychotic disorders:

    http://counsellingresource.com/lib/quizzes/misc-tests/schizophrenia-test/


    Scoring for Questions 1-13:

    • 0 points No, not at all
    • 1 point Yes, slightly
    • 4 points Yes, somewhat or moderately
    • 12 points Yes, definitely

    This yields a total maximum score of 156.
    Question 14 is scored on the same scale but is used to adjudicate on whether a diagnosis of schizophrenia should be excluded; it is not included in the final total.
    Questions 15, 16 and 17 are each scored as a binary choice and are again used to adjudicate on whether a diagnosis of schizophrenia should be excluded.
    When your quiz is scored, one of four different information pages will appear to describe the results for scores in your range, along with further details of how your score was computed.
    This quiz is sensitive to positive as well as negative prodromal symptoms, and it takes account of mitigating factors which ordinarily preclude (or at least complicate) a diagnosis of schizophrenia or other psychotic disorders.
    Constructed with a forced-choice semantic interval question design, schizophrenia screening with the Schizophrenia Test and Early Psychosis Indicator (STEPI) is intended to avoid the pitfalls of central tendency bias as well as acquiescence bias, reflecting clinically relevant self-assessments of experiences that correlate directly with some (but not all) important DSM diagnostic criteria for schizophrenia and related psychotic symptoms.
    Additional Information and Note on Validity

    The Schizophrenia Test and Early Psychosis Indicator (STEPI) was developed by Dr Greg Mulhauser. Like most mental health screening tests you will find on the internet, this test has not been evaluated for validity in terms of sensitivity and specificity via comparison with a Structured Clinical Interview for the DSM (SCID). Therefore, this instrument should not be relied upon in any way as a diagnostic aid but should be used solely as a tool for increasing your own awareness of experiences which might, under the careful evaluation of a psychiatrist, be considered indicative of schizophrenia or other psychotic disorders.
    Dr Greg Mulhauser, an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, has also developed:






    Self-Assessment Test


    SELF-TEST for SCHIZOAFFECTIVE DISORDER
    (You must be at least 18 years old to take this test.)

    Read more about SCHIZOAFFECTIVE DISORDER




    Your Score Is 19 of a possible score of 24.

    The average score for women in the age range is 13.0.



    According to the DSM-5, General Personality Disorder is the umbrella category under which a variety of specific disorders are iterated. There are multiple parameters offered which may be used to identify the presence of General Personality Disorder (American Psychiatric Association, 2013); after which the mental health professional can further clarify the specific diagnosis according to clusters of symptom presentations. Cluster A disorders are characterized by odd or eccentric behavior; Cluster B by dramatic and overly emotional behavior and Cluster C by anxious, fearful thinking and behavior. Beneath the General Personality Disorder heading there are three clusters of specific personality disorders as well as an area labeled Other Personality Disorders that provides the framework for diagnosing the illness that may manifest in unique and unusual ways (Wakefield, 2013).

But Factor 1 is also associated with extraversion and positive affect - affected persons usually score high on scales of achievement and well-being, so some aspects of the personality disorder may even be beneficial for the psychopath (in terms of nondeviant social functioning or if it comes to profit from manipulation or lies).

    You reached, however, 75,00% in other relevant traits that can indicate this personality disorder.

    You reached 88,89% of Factor 2 which captures the traits of antisocial behavior (e.g. criminal versatility, impulsiveness, irresponsibility, poor behaviour controls, juvenile delinquency) and is associated with reactive anger, social deviance, sensation seeking, anxiety, increased risk of suicide, low socio-economic status, criminality, and impulsive violence.
    You reached 100,00% in other relevant traits that can indicate this personality disorder.
    However, there are disputes over the correct diagnosis of psychopathic resp. antisocial personality disorders, and the standardization of clinical testing for APD/PPD is still in the process.
    Regarding the perspective for psychopathic/antisocial personalities and treatment options, please refer to my article about psychopathy and antisocial behavior in the "Papers" section of my website.

    narcissistic personality disorder.

    There are slight differences between the major diagnostic manuals in how to diagnose a narcissistic personality disorder, with the ICD-10 manual stating that a person may only be diagnosed with a Narcissistic Personality Disorder if she/he does not meet the diagnostic criteria for a dissocial (antisocial, psychopathic), histrionic or any of the other personality disorders at the same time. For the DSM-IV manual, there is no such exclusion. It is unusual for NPD personality types to seek therapy, as they unconsciously fear exposure or inadequacy and will usually disdain therapeutic processes or the idea of psychotherapy itself, sabotage the therapeutic process or openly oppose it. Pharmacotherapy is rarely effective.

    If you feel that this positive result might be incorrect because it doesn't match your self-assessment, you may want to try the other self-tests on my website - or even better, seek a professional diagnosis to find out what you may be dealing with. This would also help to find ways to deal with it in the most efficient manner if that turns out necessary.
    But if you feel okay, the others do that with you as well, and you just got all that reconfirmed - congratulations! :-)[G:1]

    Edit: Just looking at the thread and some self-typings of those who scored high. I think it is a good idea though to pay careful attention to the wording in this quiz and identifying with the whole phrase not just parts. :/

    The results in this thread are very very interesting. I'm thinking this forum is a great place for med students to come study about these conditions and thought/behavioral patterns involved... there really is no set-up quite like this that allows for this degree of ability to probe the depths of people's minds.

    I like observing everyone and seeing patterns/correlations emerge and evolve. Making my own connections... Of course I am not qualified to determine anyone else's mental health but I do think I have some interesting insights now and then. In general the insights are more helpful to me, than to others. so not usually worth sharing. People, irl, have told me I should be a therapist but the truth is, I don't think I could dedicate myself to having people rely on me to be there for them and stick to schedules. It seems a bit overwhelming and I appreciate those who have the patience to do it. I would probably do better as a researcher instead of being in the trenches, sts.

    Members take so many tests and quizzes here it's not difficult to draw correlations - don't see why this particular test would be such a shocking revelation, when you have tests like MOTIV and BIG 5 and a bunch of amateur ones people take all the time. Don't need a specific test titled ARE YOU A PSYCHOPATH???!!! to put 2 and 2 together when it comes to how people fall on cluster B spectrum, unless blind and deaf.

    There are also other disorders, not just cluster B...just sayin.

    People are also more honest on this forum about their shortcomings and personality defects- not just when taking tests, but also when talking about themselves - because it's a psychology forum and it's supposed to be a place where you can open up.

    For example i understand why I score high on this test, I do have many traits, but you can score very high even when many times choosing the medium option such as superficial charm, lies - not all lies are the same either) and then choosing the highest in irresponsibility, risk taking, hedonism, feeling like you have the right to take care of yourself first or believing in absolute right to personal freedom and expression, so I'm personally a bit offended to be put in the same box as someone who steals money from people, abuses their partners or puts baby animals on fire

    I also get a feeling that some people are very uncritical when it comes to assessing themselves (not talking about you suz, idk you enough, maybe that 0 score is justified). It's like watching reality shows and then reading forums where people bash contestants for being dirty liars, gossipers and manipulators, while at the same time calling these same contestants very derogatory names, gossiping about them all over the forums and wishing them all the worst. I'm not saying, some people truly are saints, but with most there's just a bunch of hypocrisy.

    See I don't lie or cheat people, this might come as a shock to you, or others (I know it will be a shock to some based on previous conversations) but people who do lie and cheat, I would place them in a box amongst those who steal money from people, what else is cheating people if it's not?

    Words nice that you never cheat or lie, you're a better person than me in that regard. Since statistics on cheating partners are around 40-50% for both sexes, lots of people can be shitty. That's not an excuse ofc, I just wouldn't call all of them sociopaths. You were also asking once in chatbox if going to a prostitute is worse then cheating with random girls, and what do we girls think, so I'm confused why you were even asking that.

    Also, if you're such a stellar person, it would be nice if you wouldn't call people extremely derogatory names in chatbox completely out of the blue and with zero provocation, while they are not even talking to you. Or is that ok and ethical in your book, something that a kind person does ?

    Ok, fair enough. You do seem like you you'd be extremely low on cluster B, I admit that. But most people I know, regular people who are very different to me in many other regards- well at least half of them cheated on their partners (it was mostly one time impulsive occurrence) and many of them can be full of themselves or make up small lies to get by easier in life. I also firmly believe that most people are very egocentric and selfish deep down- that's just human nature.

    Other traits connected with impulsivity, irresponsibility, etc., yeah, I admit most people are not like that.

    In the reading i've done, it's been noted that people with PDs tend to gravitate to one another and congregate together and vice versa. It could explain your observation about your acquaintances/friends, as well as my own observations about mine. And yes some degree of selfishness is a normal and important part of human nature, and does not in and of itself amount to a personality disorder. The questions were more extreme than that though.

    I think that scoring low on this test does not make someone a saint. All people have some faults. It just means that there might be a lower chance of these faults being examined by this particular test. And scoring high might be for many reasons, including some personal difficulties but not necessarily being a guarantee of a disorder. This is an online test. It's not an official diagnosis. This is an important difference.

    Scoring high or low is not imo correlated to type etc either. That's too simplistic. If anything scoring high while not being truly disordered might be correlated with various people understanding the phrasing in the test a different manner. Also someone in their teens/early twenties will probably have higher scores on average as it's the time of figuring many things out and testing the waters sts. Add cultural differences and upbringing on top.

    There are too many factors in play here for it to be justified to go on a witch-hunt in this thread imo.

This is an important difference.

    Scoring high or low is not imo correlated to type etc either. That's too simplistic. If anything scoring high while not being truly disordered might be correlated with various people understanding the phrasing in the test a different manner. Also someone in their teens/early twenties will probably have higher scores on average as it's the time of figuring many things out and testing the waters sts. Add cultural differences and upbringing on top.

    There are too many factors in place here for it to be justified to go on a witch-hunt in this thread imo.
    I fully agree. Not all bad deeds happen in the context of personality disorder, and people with personality disorders can still be good people.

    I just find it very interesting to observe from a purely professional clinical standpoint.

    And yes to no witch-hunts!! Please!!

    None of my friends have any sort of PD - i'd score way higher than any of them. They're very different than me . My exes are a different breed completely, those would get a golden star from psychiatrist. Personality disorders are spectrums, it's not 0% or officially diagnosed NPD .And you know, my last ex was truly NPD and HPD, and it's once you compare someone like him, who leaves a bunch of destroyed people and wrecked jobs behind, you see a clear difference between someone who's really NPD (him) and someone who just has traits of this disorder (me). It's a huge difference. But if it's more convenient for you to just put all people in one box, that's your decision.

    yep i totally hear u darya on a bunch of points you made there. Actually, as far as your narcissistic traits -- could it be possible that those are just remnants of narcissistic abuse by your ex? sometimes that can happen.... just something to consider. I absolutely agree with you on spectrum, incidentally, never said otherwise.

    There is no clear indication that you might have a
    psychopathic / antisocial personality disorder.
    You reached, however, 37,50% of Factor 1

    You reached, however, 16,67% of Factor 2 Score: 10 of 38 [10:6/3/1]

    There are strong indications that you might have a
    narcissistic personality disorder. Score: 6 of 9

    There are strong indications that you might have a
    histrionic personality disorder.

    Results, aside, I'm perfectly normal in that I function like a sane, reasonable human being professionally, socially, and privately.

    Also, being charming, socially gregarious, expressive, and enjoying being social and being in the spotlight =/= a personality disorder. I know probable narcissists who are all those things, but that's not why I peg them as narcissists: it's the way they use people as tools and capacity for manipulation and treachery over even small slights (both real and imagined). What darya said about leaving behind wrecked jobs and relationships is usually a good clue, though there are those who climb the ladder by stepping on a lot of people and are just downright ruthless (know a few of those, too).
    Life's a bitch and she's got me pussy whipped.

    Not all NPD are physically aggressive. Those that aren't can get into important jobs by running over people in other ways than their fists.

    I would recommend you look into these things though if you have any concerns, because often than not people with these types of disorders end up alone and isolated, some later than others.

    You know what, I have been thinking about this before...it feels like being in relationship with narcissists somehow rubs off on you in behavior and thinking patterns over years. I've also noticed this at work - I've been working with a bunch of seriously fucked up NPD's for years and I feel like you become more full of yourself and cut-throat just for the sole reason of survival of the fittest. If you're not on your A game and constantly observant of office games and how to survive the back-stabbing, you get stomped on. So I agree these are very unhealthy environments. Probably why all people in Hollywood or politics increase in douchiness over time, even when they were naive in beginning : )

    You're right about that aixel, and i could see how there might be some false positives on the basis of that kind of question -- i personally did not resonate with it, but i'm sure there are people who do resonate and aren't NPDs.

    And I also understand NPD to be largely based in their underlying approach to people -- seeing them as objects to be used, entertained by, bought, manipulated, just as you said. You hit the nail on the head actually, with all that you said except it's possible for them to not wreck their jobs if they play their cards right and suck up to the right people.
