It is beyond heartbreaking to try to search through the “personality disorder” image tags in an attempt to see things I can relate to, find comfort in, and actually like, only to see it excessively filled with people taking personality disorder tests either showing off and gloating their results, or claiming to be crazy and insane cause of it. Others are mocking it. Scratch that, stuff like this is everywhere on personality disorder tags and even other social media websites. And there are people actually taking it seriously o_O
We are not some joke. We are not some set, online test. We are not some fashion statement. We are not some accessory. We are not some thing you can just read about online then claim you have. And we are certainly not just some fucking ‘personality trait/quirk’ someone has.
Also, I took a look at the test. It is beyond idiotic, biased, vague, inaccurate, and quite sad actually. Also, I have extreme Borderline Personality Disorder, and my result were so screwed up. One of my lowest results was BPD! My highest result was the personality disorder I am least likely to have. haha.
It is literally a set of normal questions. Like, oh shit if you believe that life needs organization, you have Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder (OCPD)! If you follow your feelings more than thoughts, you have BPD! If you believe image is important, you have Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD)! If you want to work in the science or art field, if you care about others, if you’re interested in plant/animal research, if you’re private and reserved person, etc, you have a personality disorder. These are literally questions asked on some of those stupid online tests.
This is pathetic. It’s also set up to specifically say you have to have them, and traits of them. Stop running around making mental illnesses out to be some harmless thing you can suddenly just say you have. Stop taking these stupid tests for bragging and entertainment. I don’t care what kind of online “test” it is. Our pain and struggle is not your damn entertainment and joke, and it’s not something you can look up and just say you have. That shit is hardly ever accurate, regardless if it’s set up in a better manner than the questions I just mentioned.
