The Avoidant Personality Disorder Test is based on the diagnostic criteria of APD. The main symptoms of the disorder includes: avoidance of occupational activities that need significant interpersonal contact, because of fears of criticism, disapproval, or rejection; unwillingness of being involved with people unless certain of being liked; restraint within close relationships because of the fear of being shamed or ridiculed; reluctance of testing yourself to take personal risks or to engage in any new activities because they may prove embarrassing.


This test covers all the above-mentioned symptoms. However, as any other self-reported test, it does not replace proper professional assessment. If your score indicates that, you have a probability of having an avoidant personality disorder, but proper mental health assessment does not find any, it means that the test is mistaken in your case and provided a false-positive result.


Many individuals who have avoidant personality disorder may also suffer from an additional mental disorder, most commonly Generalized Anxiety DisorderSocial Phobia, and Depression
