This test, sponsored by 4degreez.com, is meant to help determine whether or not you have a personality disorder. It is not meant to be used as a diagnostic tool, but rather as a tool to give you insight into a potential disorder that may be having a negative impact on your life. If you believe you may be suffering from a personality disorder or any other disorder, you should ask your family doctor to recommend a therapist in your area to meet with.
First, what is a personality disorder?
A personality disorder is basically a set of traits that combine to negatively affect your life. They have a wide range of causes and some are easier to treat than others. This test is set up to look for the ten recognized personality disorders which are Paranoid, Schizoid, Schizotypal, Antisocial, Borderline, Histrionic, Narcissistic, Avoidant, Dependent, and Obsessive-Compulsive.
I find the whole approach of pigeonholing and labeling every single character variation rather convenient, self serving to the mental "health" industry, and quote frankly full of scientific flaws, slightly more precise than astrology.

I just took the test and I scored Low on every one. I answered honestly. Does that mean I'm normal?

I just love how there is a question: "Do you see things as Black and White, as in no in between or shades of gray?" On a test that the only options are yes or no for answers.
