    It's just so annoying when that happens!! That used to happen to me A LOT!
    Hum...
    I think I was too hard on me, I used to get too anxious and I couldn't think of anything to say. If I thought of something, that wasn't good enought to be said, so I didn't say it. So I stayed in silence and people found me weird. So they asked me to speak and I got even more anxious and my mind would go completely blank. I don't know if it's like that for you, but it is how it was for me.

    Yeah, some people say everyone has passed through something like that, but, well... Knowing that didn't help me much. "Don't worry, be happy", has never helped me anything, but to make me feel even worse of not being able to not worry and just being happy.

    I've identified myself with the avoidant personality disorder before... I think I could fit in the wikipedia description when I was younger, but I'm not like that anymore. ^^

    You've got many high rates to disorders... o.o But I wouldn't take those tests seriously...

    I used to stay a lot in my inner fantasy worlds too... But they were really fantasy worlds xD. And I played MMORPGs too... I don't know if those were ways of escaping... I just thought I liked daydreaming and playing. '-' Anyway, I stopped with the MMORPGs and excessive fantasy worlds eventually. Without them, I feel my mind is more in the here and now and I can pay more attention to what was happening around me and to the people around me, and so I can socialize more. It actually helped me being more there for people. I still daydream, but not as much as before.

    I've seen it's ok to want to be alone sometimes and to feel some things sometimes... And that has helped me the most.

    Just wanted to share my experience, which seems to be kinda similar...

    Nothing like a good therapist to keep you believing in your disorder to keep you coming back for more and more sessions. It's really the therapist who is the needy one. Testing will cause you to sink deeper into your symptoms.

    It really depends on the therapist. The bad ones may do that, but good professionals will know when their patient is fine and does not need them anymore. At least is what my therapist has done last week, she said her work is by objectives, so I needed I new objective, since I've reached the one that made me go there. Since I didn't have any new objective at the moment, she suggested me living without the therapy and calling her if ever thought I needed it. She a comportamental psychologist.

    But tests do really suck sometimes.

    "Comportamental" is an obscure term. What does it mean?

    I'm so sorry!!! I used a portuguese term! xD

    She is a radical behaviorist psychologist. Another name for that is behavior analyst.

    (comportamental=behaviorist)

    You mean radical as in stimulus/response?

    Hum... I'm not sure what you mean with that...

    I mean radical in contrast with methodological behaviorism (from Watson). I think the methodological behaviorism is the stimulus/response one you are referring to.
