What's your score? :P

I got 4/8 but there's no guide saying what it means. I'm assuming I'm halfway along the histrionic spectrum? :lol:

That's quite funny because I always take a test before I ask other people what their score is, I can't resist!

It's a bit pointless without a guide isn't it! :lol:

Yeah I wouldn't expect most people on WP to score high on this.

Ah I see about the microwave! :lol:

I got 19/48! That's 40% or about 2/5. I think that's acceptable, I know I've got the artistic temperament! :wink:

Ugh yes. Awful. If people expect me to 'perform' I hide in the kitchen or wherever.

My high scores were that I'm very emotional. And I often think someone is a good friend whereas they think I'm a casual friend/ acquaintance.

I scored a zero - the description of the condition doesn't fit me at all.

I can never decide if my stepmother had hpd or Npd.

I mean I'd like to think pw hdp have some redeeming qualities at least but she had none so probably Npd.

It's funny because I usually score quite high on these kinds of tests but not on this one.

I often wonder if I've been 'conditioned' to be autistic.

I was a very talkative, emotional child with big feelings, but I was constantly told to shut up, stop talking, calm down, don't overreact, keep my feelings private, or my mum and others got very angry with me.

So I learned to do all that. To basically stop showing or even having emotions, because they upset other people and I got punished. Therefore I became an unemotional person who rarely shows her feelings, but has a tornado of feelings inside all the time. And also because I wasn't allowed to have feelings, I never learned what feelings are or how to cope with them.

First one: 2/8

Second: 10/48

I can’t not take any relationship seriously, otherwise I’m about the exact opposite. I hate having attention drawn to me for any reason.
