Borderline Personality Disorder Results 2

Your Results:

Your responses show that you possibly are dealing with Borderline Personality Disorder.

You answered this self-report test in a way that is sometimes consistent with people who have been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. This suggests that these concerns may be an issue for you as well. If they are a concern to you, you should perhaps consider seeking out further assistance with this issue from a trained mental health professional. Borderline Personality Disorder is characterized by a pattern of unstable and intense relationships, as well as frantic efforts to avoid abandonment -- even if it's not real. You should not take this as a diagnosis of any sort, or a recommendation for treatment. However, you may want to look into seeking further consultation with a trained mental health professional if you are experiencing any difficulties in daily functioning or if you'd like a more in-depth answer.

Screening quizzes are not diagnostic tests, nor can they provide you with a diagnosis. The only person who can provide you with a diagnosis is a physician, psychiatrist, psychologist, or other mental health care professional. It is generally not beneficial for you to identify a diagnosis ahead of time, and then go to a doctor telling them you believe you have that diagnosis. Instead, we encourage you to identify symptoms of concern to your doctor that are having a significant impact in your daily life. A valid and reliable diagnosis can only be made in partnership with your doctor or mental health professional.

We believe in the importance of screening quizzes because they help in the effort to reduce the stigma, prejudice and discrimination people who have mental health concerns often suffer in silence, because others believe their symptoms aren’t “real.” Mental disorders are real and screening quizzes help identify serious, life-changing symptoms of concern in people who might not otherwise consult with a mental health professional.
