The Paranoid Personality Disorder Test is based on the diagnostic criteria of PPD.
According DSM, these diagnostic criteria include: suspects, without sufficient basis, that others are exploiting, harming, or deceiving him or her; preoccupation with unjustified doubts about the loyalty of friends; reluctance to confide in others; reading hidden demeaning or threatening meanings in benign word or actions of other people; persistent bearing of grudges; unjustified perception of attacks on his or her reputation; without justification, recurrent and unjustified suspicions about fidelity of spouse or sexual partner.
Paranoid personality is distinguished by paranoia and a pervading, enduring suspiciousness and generalized mistrust of other people. Individuals with PPD are keen observers. They tend to vigilantly scan the milieu for evidence that justifies their fears and biases. They are hypersensitive and could be easily insulted.
This test covers all the main symptoms of paranoid personality disorder. 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 a paranoid 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.
