How accurate is this self-test?
This self-assessment is actually administered by professionals in clinical settings. However, here we have published this test in the form of a quiz, and it is based on a scoring system that may be accurate in calculating points but lacks human evaluation, which is necessary for making a professional diagnosis. We have worked hard to make the paranoid personality test reliable and valid, but to be honest, this test cannot be compared to a professional diagnosis.
About Paranoid Personality Disorder
It is normal to feel suspicion or mistrust of others if there is a reason to do so, but if there is no reason to interpret the actions of others as threatening or untrustworthy, it may not be normal and could indicate a sign of Paranoid Personality Disorder. People with paranoid personality disorder are overly guarded, hostile, and defensive, and they have difficulty maintaining long-term or close relationships. These behaviors do not necessarily indicate that someone may be suffering from Paranoid Personality Disorder. Therefore, for a diagnosis of PPD, these behaviors must cause significant distress or impairment in personal or professional life. PPD is a mental health condition, and only a mental health professional can make a proper diagnosis and provide appropriate treatment.
