The IDRlabs Star Wars Pathology Test (IDR-SWPT©) is the property of IDRlabs International. The IDR-SWPT utilizes the concept of Star Wars characters but is not associated with Lucasfilm, Disney, or the Star Wars franchise. It is not the equivalent of other “Star Wars” or “New Trilogy” quizzes. STAR WARS is a trademark of Lucasfilm (U.S. Registration No. 1127229), along with the names of several Star Wars characters (Darth Vader, R2-D2, etc.). The present test is in no way endorsed by, nor affiliated with, Disney, Lucasfilm, or similar entities. No infringement is intended by the present test.

This Star Wars Pathology Test has been made with the aid of professional analysts who have experience with organizational psychology. While the concept of Star Wars characters is fictitious, this quiz nonetheless uses genuine research-based items and diagnoses to measure the respondent’s correspondence to seven Star Wars characters, as well as their psychiatric pathologies. The methodology of the Star Wars Pathology Quiz is based on original research carried out by psychiatrists Dr. Ryan C.W. Hall (M.D.), Dr. Susan H. Friedman (M.D.), and associates and published in the scientific journal Academic Psychiatry, 39(6), 726–732. doi:10.1007/s40596-015-0337-6.

Star Wars tests and quizzes, whether they are professional, used in academic research, or free online quizzes like this one, can indicate your personality match with one of seven Star Wars characters (Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine, Han Solo, R2-D2, C3-PO, Anakin Skywalker, and the Jawas) for educational purposes only. In general, when dealing with personality tests, no quiz ever devised can designate your personality match with complete validity or precision, and no test can replace familiarizing yourself with theory, models, and the relevant knowledge in depth.
