as if i need this to tell me how crazy i am

need a reason to go to counseling? want a laugh? suspect you're psychologically unstable but can't figure out why?

then this is the test for you!

diagnose your very own personality disorder(s) by answering about 20 simple questions!

just to make you all feel better about your results, here are mine:


DisorderRating
Paranoid Personality Disorder:Low
Schizoid Personality Disorder:Low
Schizotypal Personality Disorder:Low
Antisocial Personality Disorder:Low
Borderline Personality Disorder:Moderate
Histrionic Personality Disorder:High
Narcissistic Personality Disorder:Low
Avoidant Personality Disorder:Low
Dependent Personality Disorder:Low
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder:Low

if you don't know what any of these are, this great little quiz explains them to you.

(by the way, i don't really suffer from histrionic or borderline personality disorder.) (usually.) (okay sometimes but don't tell.)

i especially loved this having studied psych in college. thanks to my hubby for sending it to me. he's just as crazy as i am, but luckily we have different disorders so we kind of balance each other out.

so what personality disorders do you have? share the crazy, people!

p.s. i am in no way mocking or making fun of those who suffer from these disorders, or any disorders. i am only mocking and making fun of the fact that there is a stupid internet quiz that thinks it can tell you that you are "likely" to have one of these disorders. they are serious disorders that can only be diagnosed by a professional. if you really, actually, in fact, think you may suffer from one of these, seek professional help immediately. so don't fry me for this post. i'm being satirical here.

I remember in my psych classes in college I TOTALLY thought I had a little of everything!! I now firmly believe that everyone is a little crazy in some way! :)

On another note, it's so sad that you had to put a disclaimer at the bottom of that entry..people need to learn how to take a joke!!

hi cornnut -- thank you for popping over to my blog and telling me about the quiz link. i am off to take the test now. i occasionally like answering quizzes/assessments (varied subjects) totally honest just to see what happens. fun fun.

and thank you for your kind comment on what i wrote earlier. it was meaningful to me, so i appreciated your positive words of praise :)

g'night, kathleen :)
