Below is a list of questions that relate to life experiences common among people diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder—a mental health condition characterized by a persistent disregard for the feelings of others and a lack of empathy. Please read each question carefully and indicate whether you have experienced these thoughts or behaviors since the age of 15.

The quiz questions were derived using the DSM-5 Criteria for the Personality Disorders, established by the American Psychiatric Association (2012). This quiz and the results are NOT diagnostic tools or a substitute for a formal diagnosis. Only a licensed mental health professional or doctor can provide a formal diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder.

Psycom believes assessments can be a valuable first step toward getting treatment. All too often people stop short of seeking help out of fear their concerns aren't legitimate or severe enough to warrant professional intervention.
