Borderline Test




Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a mental condition characterised by long-term emotional turbulence, intense and often unstable relationships with others, and a lack of sense of self.



The PDChat borderline test is designed to help you understand whether you may have Borderline Personality Disorder. Answer each question according to how much it describes you. Think of yourself as you generally are right now and not how you were or how you would like to be. Answer honestly for the most accurate result.
If you are logged in, you will be given the opportunity to save your results at the end of the test.
