Below is a list of questions that relate to life experiences common among people who have been diagnosed with paranoid personality disorder. Please read each question carefully, and indicate how often you have experienced the same or similar challenges in the past few months.

This quiz is NOT a diagnostic tool. Mental health disorders can only be diagnosed by a qualified/licensed mental health professional or doctor.

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.

Your privacy is important to us. All results are completely anonymous.
