I have psychopathic tendencies

Self-test for psychopathy ('Am I a psychopath?' - self-test, (...)

This self-test checks for signs of the following personality disorders:

  • Psychopathy / Antisocial Personality Disorder
  • Narcissistic Personality Disorder
  • Histrionic Personality Disorder

In order to achieve the most reliable results possible, this self-test combines methods based on the Hare Psychopathy Checklist (used in research and clinical practice to test for psychopathy) with tests for clinical markers for narcissistic and histrionic personality disorders according to the diagnostic manuals DSM-IV and ICD-10. The test thus has a relatively high potential to achieve reliable results, even if it is carried out via the Internet - even if it should be noted that, especially for the personality disorders tested here, the quality of the results can be lower if the questions are not answered honestly or the person carrying out the exercise perceives himself or the environment in a distorted manner ... which, however, are both parameters that are not uncommon, especially in psychopathic or antisocial personalities.

For many people, there is confusion about the exact symptoms and differences between psychopathy, sociopathy, antisocial and histrionic personality disorder, which can particularly unsettle those people who have problems in their relationships with others (be it as individuals or relatives) and want guidance about them what causes these problems. This test tries to help with this orientation.
However, for the reasons mentioned above and because of the limitations of what an online test can do, it should not be confused with a diagnostic test: it cannot be used as a substitute for a psychological, psychotherapeutic or psychiatric diagnosis. So if there is even a spark of doubt in the result or if a reliable diagnosis is required for certain reasons, it is strongly recommended to consult a psychologist, experienced psychotherapist or psychiatrist for a reliable and neutral diagnosis.

The test contains 42 questions and takes about 10-15 minutes.
After taking the test, you will receive a free of charge evaluation Of your answers.

privacy is important to me: Your answers will be saved for statistical purposes, but without any personal reference that allows conclusions to be drawn about your identity. To avoid misuse of the questionnaire, your IP address is recorded.
The self-test and its evaluation are completely free of charge for you.
