Evaluate your risk for Paranoid Personality Disorder with a validated screening questionnaire.

Paranoid Personality Disorder is a mental illness characterized by paranoid delusions and pervasive, persistent, and enduring mistrust of of others.

The DSM requires 4 of the following to qualify for a diagnosis of Paranoid Personality Disorder:

1. Suspects, without sufficient basis, that others are exploiting, harming, or deceiving them.
2. Is preoccupied with unjustified doubts about the loyalty or trustworthiness of friends or associates.
3. Is reluctant to confide in others because of unwarranted fear that the information will be used maliciously against them.
4. Reads hidden demeaning or threatening meanings into benign remarks or events.
5. Persistently bears grudges (i.e., is unforgiving of insults, injuries, or slights).
6. Perceives attacks on their character or reputation that are not
apparent to others and is quick to react angrily or to counterattack.
7. Has recurrent suspicions, without justification, regarding fidelity of spouse or sexual partner.

Paranoid Personality Disorder can be treated through psychotherapy or medication when the person is receptive to intervention.
