PersonalityDrive is all about understanding more about your personality. This includes looking at different types of personality and also personality disoerders.

Your mental state defines much about you.  If you’re feeling good, nothing is beyond you.  If you’re feeling down, however, it feels as though you can’t cope.  It can be much more extreme.

Mental problems occur more often in people suffering physical health issues

  • A personality disorder can affect how you cope with life, manage relationships, how you behave, and how you feel.
  • There are different types of personality disorders.
  • There is no single cause of personality disorder. It is likely to be a combination of reasons, including genetic and environmental causes.
  • Talking therapies are recommended as treatment for personality disorders.
  • You can have a personality disorder alongside other mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression.

Rethink Mental Illness show what these are, what the symptonms are and how to get treatment.

In order for you to assess what you know about this health area, we suggest using a questionnaire. This might help you understand your situation in this area, or taking it might improve your understanding of the area.

You may be able to take this questionnaire online – either here on our site or on an external site – or download it and complete it on paper – it depends on copyright (and whether we’ve managed to build it on our site!).

The ways you can take a questionnaire:

PDF for download, More than one questionnaire on our site

Take Questionnaire on our site

We have two questionnaires on our site – you will see a brief description of two questionnaires, followed by tabs with the questionnaires contained.   If you scroll down you will see links to external questionnaire(s) or downloads if there are any. Scroll down until you get to the right place for you!

YDH Questionnaire Selection

The first questionnaire is a simple 9 questions which gives an indication of how likely it is that you suffer from a Borderline Personality Disorder. The second is slightly more detailed with 12 questions and gives a more detailed range of possibilities.

Download questionnaire and take it yourself

You can download at least one questionnaire from our site.  You will have to score the questionnaire yourself.

Rather than a questionnaire, this download is a factsheet from Rethink Mental Illness on personality disorders.  It tells you what personality disorders are, what the symptoms are, and how you can get treatment. You might find it useful if you have a personality disorder yourself, or if you care for someone who does.
