The IDRLabs Cluster B Indicators Test is inspired by psychometric methodology and research related to behavioral domains often associated with Cluster B personality structure.

The test provides feedback such as the following:

Atypical Accessories refer to an underlying need for attention and admiration, characteristics often associated with cluster b personality disorders. This inclination towards ostentatious items serves as a mechanism to stand out and be noticed, fulfilling a desire for external validation and acknowledgment. It reflects a deeper issue of self-esteem dysregulation, where self-worth is excessively tied to physical appearance and material possessions. Individuals may rely on these conspicuous symbols of status to bolster a fragile ego, masking feelings of emptiness or inadequacy with external displays of success or beauty.

Social Media Self-Promotion reflects a constant showcasing of one's life, achievements, and appearance online, often stemming from a need for external validation and attention. This trait can indicate personality pathology, especially within cluster b, where there is a high dependency on others for self-esteem regulation. The compulsive use of social media as a platform for validation can reveal underlying issues of identity diffusion and narcissistic tendencies, as individuals curate an idealized self-image to project to the world, often disconnecting from their authentic selves in the process.

Tattoos refer to self-expression that may also signal a deeper psychological need for identity exploration and differentiation, particularly in the context of personality pathology. For individuals with cluster b traits, tattoos can serve as a tangible representation of the self or as markers of personal significance in the face of self-concept dysregulation. However, when driven by impulsivity or a need for attention and recognition, this behavior might reflect an underlying struggle with self-esteem, where tattoos become a means to assert individuality and garner external validation.

Piercings denote an expression of individuality that, when excessive, might indicate a tendency towards self-differentiation struggles and identity diffusion, which are traits often seen in cluster b personality structures. Piercings can become a tool for asserting uniqueness and autonomy, yet an overreliance on such physical alterations for identity formation can signal underlying issues with self-esteem and a need for external validation. This behavior suggests a deeper psychological conflict, where body modifications are used to navigate feelings of emptiness and to seek attention in a visibly tangible manner.

Emotionality denotes an outward manifestation of emotional dysregulation, a common feature in cluster b disorders. While expressivity can facilitate communication and connection, an overemphasis on emotionality may also reflect an underlying attempt to control perceptions and elicit specific responses from others. This behavior can signify a reliance on external validation to regulate self-esteem, where exaggerated emotional displays are used strategically to manipulate social interactions and affirm one's identity in the absence of a stable self-concept.

Unusual Appearance may reflect a deeper struggle with identity diffusion and self-esteem dysregulation characteristic of personality pathology, particularly within cluster b disorders. Aesthetic transformation may be an attempt to explore different facets of identity or to escape from oneself, indicating a lack of a cohesive self-image. The reliance on external changes as a means of self-expression and the pursuit of novelty in appearance can also signal a dependency on external validation to feel valued and recognized, highlighting the fluid and often unstable nature of self-perception in individuals with cluster b disorders.
