Dissociative identity disorder (DID) is a mental health condition in which a person experiences two or more distinct and separate identities or personalities, each with its own unique set of behaviors, thoughts, and feelings.
This self-test is based on the criteria outlined in the DSM-5 by the American Psychiatric Association for the diagnosis of dissociative identity disorder (DID). This self-test is not a self-diagnostic tool, and you should seek professional help if you are concerned with your symptoms.
The self-test consists of 25 items, and you have to provide responses indicating how well you agree with the statements.
How accurate is this self-test
This self-test can help identify symptoms and also help in tracking the severity of your symptoms associated with this disorder.
Dissociative identity disorder is a serious mental health condition, and there is no accurate self-assessment for the diagnosis of this condition. If you are concerned with your symptoms, you must consult a mental health professional for a proper diagnosis.
Does a high score mean I have dissociative identity disorder?
No, if you got a high score, it does not necessarily mean you are suffering from this disorder because there are other health conditions that share the same set of symptoms associated with a dissociative identity disorder. You must consult a doctor, and he will conduct laboratory tests, psychological assessments, and other tools to make a definite diagnosis.
