i believe i may have anti-social personality disorder I'm sure I meet 5 of the 7 criteria for diagnosis under the DSM IV and I'm not sure how to go about talking to a psychiatrist about it when they ask me certain questions i usually lie or avoid them.

Hi Hydes, I'm not really sure

Hi Hydes,

I'm not really sure what your question is. I will say this - most people with antisocial personality disorder aren't usually concerned about having it. That doesn't mean you don't, but it's not the norm.

It's unclear as to whether you've already seen a psychiatrist or are considering it, as you say you lie in response to, or avoid, certain questions. That doesn't necessarily mean you are antisocial - it could be that certain questions make you anxious, uncomfortable, or ashamed - so you make something up or avoid the question.
