The following screening test has been developed by me to assist in detecting symptoms of a Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) (link: German language article) according to the criteria outlined in the DSM IV manual.
Note: this is as screening test, no diagnostic test - so it can't replace a medical, psychological or psychotherapeutic diagnosis. A screening test is used to distinguish between individuals who require a detailed examination of certain symptoms and those where it is not required.
The test involves 40 questions and will take about 4 minutes to complete.
After submitting your answers, your results will be displayed (at no cost at all).
Privacy is considered as important by me as a psychotherapist: your answers will be saved for statistical purposes, but without any personal reference which would allow a conclusion about your identity. To avoid abuse of this questionnaire, your IP address will be recorded.
Instructions and complementary notes
The results of the test will be most accurate if you answer honestly.
While most of the other tests on my website recommend to answer spontaneously, in view of the particular personality disorder this test screens for, it is recommended you consider whether other persons would share your self-assessment in the responses.
- please answer all questions and don't leave any of them unanswered -
a result will only be displayed if you completed the questionnaire.
- please pay attention on the wording of the questions and try to answer as exactly as possible to get accurate results
