Dissociation Test

Dissociation involves a disruption in the normal integration of consciousness, memory, identity, emotion, perception, bodily sensation, and behavior. It can manifest in various forms, from amnesia and depersonalization to complex dissociative disorders. Based on research from the University of New England, this test measures personal characteristics associated with fragmented consciousness to evaluate your dissociative tendencies.

Question 1 of 56

I am able to remember very little of my past.



The IDRLabs Dissociation Test is inspired by the Multidimensional Inventory of Dissociation (MID-60) authored by Kate et al. at the University of New England, Australia. IDRLabs is not affiliated with either authors or institutions.

The test provides feedback such as the following:

General Amnesia: Denotes a condition where an individual discovers alterations in their personal appearance or finds themselves in unfamiliar locations without any memory of the actions or decisions leading to these changes. This facet encompasses sudden, unexplained instances of memory loss regarding recent events and personal actions.

Alter Personalities: Refers to the subjective experience of having multiple, distinct identities or personalities within oneself. Each may possess its own patterns of perceiving, relating to, and thinking about the environment and the self. This awareness includes hearing internal voices or feeling the presence of these distinct self-states.

Angry Intrusions: Denotes the experience of uncontrolled anger expression, where words or actions emerge without the individual's volition, often feeling alien or external. This facet captures instances where anger seems to be driven by an internal force or alter, leading to behaviors or speech that are uncharacteristic or regrettable.

Persecutory Intrusions: Refers to the experience of internal voices or thoughts that are hostile, critical, or harmful in nature, urging self-harm or expressing derogatory assessments of the self. This facet highlights the internal struggle with parts of the self that seem to act against the individual’s well-being or self-image.

Derealization-Depersonalization: Denotes the sensation of being detached from one’s surroundings, feelings, or body, leading to a sense of unreality. Individuals with high scores may feel as though they are observing their lives from an external viewpoint or that the world around them is foggy, dreamlike, or artificial.

Dissociative Amnesia: Refers to significant distress or functional impairment caused by the inability to recall important personal information, typically of a recent nature. This goes beyond normal forgetfulness, affecting daily functioning and leading to notable upset over the memory gaps.

Autobiographical Amnesia: Denotes a profound loss or blocking of critical personal history, including childhood memories or significant life events. This facet captures the experience of being unable to access substantial portions of one’s life story, leading to a fragmented sense of self and history.

PTSD: Flashbacks: Refers to the involuntary, vivid re-experiencing of traumatic events as if they were occurring in the present. This includes sensory, emotional, and physical reactions, causing significant distress and impairment in functioning, as the past trauma intrusively breaks into current awareness.

Conversion Disorder: Denotes the manifestation of psychological stress in physical ways, resulting in symptoms like paralysis, blindness, or difficulty swallowing without a medical basis. These symptoms symbolize deeper emotional conflicts, surfacing as physical impairments that defy organic explanation.

Trances: Denotes periods where an individual experiences a disconnection from immediate surroundings, often entering a state of focused attention or absorption resembling a trance. This can interfere with daily activities and responsibilities, as the person may lose track of time or become unresponsive to external stimuli.

Self-confusion: Refers to a pervasive sense of uncertainty about one’s identity, actions, or the nature of one's reality. It encompasses feelings of detachment from one’s behaviors, experiencing actions as automatic or foreign, and a disconnection from one’s thoughts, feelings, or sense of self.

Total Dissociation: Your overall degree of dissociative symptoms. Higher scores indicate greater problems with dissociation.
