Just call me "Mr. Well Adjusted"

So I took the Personality Disorder Test. Turns out I'm not an immediate danger to go all Unibomber, so I got that going for me.

Which is nice.

My results:

Paranoid: Low
Schizoid: Low
Schizotypal: Low
Antisocial: Low
Borderline: Low
Histrionic: High
Narcissistic: Low
Avoidant: Low
Dependent: Low
Obsessive-Compulsive: Low

I would have thought narcissistic for sure. Big with the "histrionic" though.

People with histrionic personality disorder are constant attention seekers. They need to be the center of attention all the time, often interrupting others in order to dominate the conversation. They use grandiose language to discribe everyday events and seek constant praise. They may dress provacatively or exaggerate illnesses in order to gain attention. They also tend to exaggerate friendships and relationships, believing that everyone loves them. They are often manipulative.

Thanks to Sheila for the link.

Dress provocatively, eh? Wouldn't have thought it.

Well, not really. I guess I can make anything look good, though.

Ok. Everything but the provocative dress. Although I DO like it when women dress provocatively... does that count?

I'm not surprised. I'm moderately schizoid and low across the board on other categories. That seems a tad harsh.
