Am I crazy?

It being a lazy Sunday evening and having nothing much to do, I took an online Psychological Disorders test. Here are the results.

    My Score Web Avg.
Paranoid |||||| 30% 49%
Schizoid |||||||||||||| 58% 53%
Schizotypal |||||||||||||||||||| 86% 53%
Antisocial   |||||||||||| 50% 47%
Borderline |||||| 30% 47%
Histrionic |||||||||||||||||| 78% 43%
Narcissistic |||||||||||||||| 70% 41%
Avoidant |||||| 26% 39%
Dependent |||||||||||||| 54% 37%
Obsessive-Compulsive |||||||||| 38% 40%

Paranoid - generally tends to interpret the actions of others as threatening.

Schizoid - generally detached from social relationships, and shows a narrow range of emotional expression in various social settings.

Schizotypal - uncomfortable in close relationships, has thought or perceptual distortions, and peculiarities of behaviour.

Antisocial - shows a pervasive disregard for, and violation of, the rights of others.

Borderline - shows a generalized pattern of instability in interpersonal relationships, self-image, and observable emotions, and significant impulsiveness.

Histrionic - often displays excessive emotionality and attention seeking in various contexts. They tend to overreact to other people, and are often perceived as shallow and self-centred.

Narcissistic - has a grandiose view of themselves, a need for admiration, and a lack of empathy that begins by early adulthood and is present in various situations. These individuals are very demanding in their relationships.

Avoidant - socially inhibited, feels inadequate, and is oversensitive to criticism

Dependent - shows an extreme need to be taken care of that leads to fears of separation, and passive and clinging behaviour.

Obsessive-Compulsive - preoccupied with orderliness, perfectionism, and control at the expense of flexibility, openness, and efficiency.


I’m shocked! Anyone who knows me knows about my OCD! And I avoid everything like the plague! This must mean I really AM going crazy for not knowing these things! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!

On the other hand, they’re spot on about the narcissism and the histrionics.

No way ... Get out of town.

Also, when you say you are going crazy, does that imply that you have not accomplished said goal already?

And you thought anonymous trolls were your only problem.

Menaka said...

yeah... apart from the histrionics and the naecissism everything else was crap... ur nothing like that...

Jhayu said...

@ Preeti.
Ooh, I want to know!

And that's right back at you, my dearest.

@ Over.
Yeah... Hoodathunkit!

And now that you mention it, yeah... =p

@ Akanem.
Oh, if you're saying it must be gospel!

Menaka said...

Do you want to debate on this?

Jhayu said...

@ blipblip.
No, not really. Just don't say it like your word is the eternal truth, na?

Priyanka said...

woah! the test couldn't be more accurate. but i guess it's the crazy Jayant that people like. how would you be without ur OCD, narcissism, histronics and paranoias.

Jhayu said...

@ Pinkesh.
What are you saying??? The test says I'm LESS obsessive-compulsive than most. It says i'm LESS avoiding than others!
And you say it couldn't be more right! Haw!

Look at the bright side - at least your score was lower than the web average in three cases....

I will check out the test later just to see what sort of questions do they ask to figure such things out lol.

Also I don't quite trust the rating scale. Comparison to an average is not indication at all.

But ya it did figure out correctly for you on some counts didnt it hehe 'peculiarities of behaviour', 'attention seeking', 'overreact to other people', 'shallow and self-centered', 'grandiose view of themselves', etc alllllll fit so well lol.

Okay but seriously peculiarities of behaviour do remember once incident when I said 'you seem crazy (or psychotic)' or something on those lines

Talk, my friend. Now that you've read this section, the urge to speak has increased. I know. It's all right. It happens...
Stop fighting it. Talk.
