It seemed very broad to me. I have schizophrenia and many of the things on the test that I scored highly on are also present for my schizophrenia. I don't think I have problems with what the test was for.

66.. I've had issues with depersonalisation in the past but I feel like my answers to a lot of those questions were just caused by mood disorders.

I think it's too short a questionnaire to give a very precise result. Or maybe I'm just too embarrassed to take it - I'm just getting to grips with my DDNOS Dx.

Just like Kinsey found that peoples sexuality could change over time, tests/questionnaires like these are always to be taken with a grain of salt. I scored very high on both. I think the concepts of depersonalization/derealization will help me to articulate how I feel to my pdoc tomorrow, but I'm not gonna waltz in there and way, "Well, I've got depersonalization disorder, there's no doubt about it." It'll be more like, "I happened to read about the symptoms of depersonalization, and I identified with a lot of it. Same thing goes for 'mystical psychosis.'"

YOUR SCORE IS 26
Your score of 26 falls in the range of Severe Depersonalization (25-75).We recommend that you be evaluated by a professional who is trained in the administration of the full SCID-D interview.
I think I scored on the low end because I've only just started seeing this weird crap happen. How about getting in the car, driving to work (Perfectly between the lines at exactly the right speed) I watched myself work, talk and so on an amazed...t Pretty good since I wasn't doing anything but trying to send this other guy the signal to choke down some benzos. I have to admit I was doing a much better job then my usual half assed mess. Running on autopilot? Anyway, I never heard of Depersonalization until my Doc added it to my DX. Just what I need...
I half expected it to say You scored a 26 but don't worry with the miserable drama / anxiety filled screwed and messed up life you have it will be a 75 anytime now!
"I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill and think things over. Dave, my mind is going. I can feel it. I can feel it. My mind is going. There is no question about it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I can feel it. I'm a...fraid. "

i scored 51...but like others mention, this seems too short to give anything but the most surface conclusion...or cause someone a butt-load of anxiety thinking they have something when they don't
Posted 13 November 2013 - 02:33 AM
I didn't put "never" for any of the questions, so maybe that's why I scored so high, but I would think most people have all of these experiences at least "once or twice". but then I also put "almost all the time" for 4 of them.
Dx: OCD & bipolar II

I have really come to dislike that quiz. It scares people. It isn't accurate. It is the sort of thing where you can say, "Well, that isn't happening now, but it did last year, so do I count it or not?" Over the years, I've learned to gauge when I am actually doing badly, and when I am just nervous about about a given situation.

"Your score of 47 falls in the range of Severe Depersonalization (25-75).We recommend that you be evaluated by a professional who is trained in the administration of the full SCID-D interview. If your depersonalization has interfered with your relationships with friends, family or coworkers, or has affected your ability to work or has caused you distress, it is particularly important that you obtain a professional consultation."
That was my answer. But I have to say I agree with it as I KNOW I suffer from dissociation/depersonalization quite significantly and so does my psychiatrist...

Nah, not a terribly good quiz to have linked.
...And online quizzes are generally about as sharp a tool as a rubber mallet.
I was trying to figure out if I was possibly DID or not.
I have been Dx'ed DID-NOS, so the answer's pretty much yes.
...STILL a sucky quiz.
