How paranoid are you? Take this quiz, coauthored by paranoia expert Daniel Freeman, to see where you fall along the paranoia spectrum. First, scan the 10 statements below. Then use the scale from 1 (not at all) to 5 (totally) to indicate how strongly you agree with each statement, given the thoughts and feelings you've had within the past month. Once finished, tally your score.
1 = Not at all 5 = Totally
The higher your score, the farther you are along the spectrum toward paranoia.
- 50 percent of all people score 10 to 15 points
- 25 percent of people score 16 to 20 points
- 20 percent of people score 21 to 28 points
