• Now, for the first time ever, you can take the test psychologists use to determine psychotic personality tendencies in patients. What is being psychotic? The term psychotic was coined in 1890, from the word, "psychosis". It's based on the model of neurotic/neurosis, from Greek psykhe- "mind, soul". A mental state caused by psychiatric or organic illness, characterized by a loss of contact with reality and an inability to think rationally. A psychotic person often behaves inappropriately and is incapable of normal social functioning. This test is the actual test used by clinical psychologists to determine whether a patient has psychotic tendencies. Most of these answers will be true or false. Try to answer the questions based on personal interpretation, not theoretical possibility. (You might also use this test to see if someone you like on OkCupid is going to flip out on you later.) Good luck, and if you don't like your results, please don't kill me.
