Dependent Test




Dependent Personality Disorder (DPD) is a personality disorder where the sufferers tend to depend on others to meet their needs, be it physical or emotional. People with DPD tend to be clingy and portray themselves as helpless and passive, and have a fear of separation or being alone.



The PDChat dependent test is designed to help you understand whether you may have Dependent Personality Disorder. Answer each question according to how much it describes you.
