    Of course, the big joke about all of this is that PDs, by nature, are supposedly things that can almost never be self-diagnosed. The people who really have them would likely answer no to all the questions that imply excess or deficiency, since they would not perceive their own behavior to be excessive or deficient.

    Haha exactly. But still it's fun to take the tests and tell everyone you have a PD.

    Haha, I don't really tell them I have a PD, but I show them the test. I'm very interested in the mind.

    I am too, but that's why I am cautious to not misrepresent it.

    Hah, not quite. But there are actually more than that test lists, depending on which diagnostic source you go to. Check out the ICD-10. Also, there are many PDs of DSM past. Cyclothymia used to be considered a PD, it's now under the mood disorder class, as a form of bipolarism. I personally think that was an odd choice on their part, as they now have no classifcation for bipolarism like behavior that is cognitive rather than mood related. But oh well, the DSM does a lot of crap I disagree with.

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

    *nods* I am avoidant to the max. Chicken shit.

    DSM isn't the be-all-end-all sort of guide for personality disorder. Actually the whole field is so fuzzy that there's isn't really true distinction between the types. I personally think cognitive therapy in conjunction to drug treatment by individual cases would be best.

    Sounds very interesting. I'll have to check it out some time.

    I learned from the MBTI and observing people who try to use it, that the most accurate approach appeared to be a quantitative and composite one, while the least accureat approaches have been qualitative and archetypical ones.

    I've found that I can apply that discovery of mine to abnormal psychology. I personally feel that at this time, the DSM is indeed much too qualitative and archetypical in it's approach.
