If your test result indicates that you may have symptoms of Intermittent Explosive Disorder, you will need further evaluation to confirm the diagnosis. This online self-test is based on the diagnostic criteria of Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED).
IED is one of the DSM-5 Disruptive, Impulse-Control, and Conduct Disorders. IED is characterized by impulsive and aggressive outbursts, which are usually not premeditated. These outbursts can be in form of verbal and/or physical aggression, and can lead to very disruptive behavior. 
Intermittent explosive disorder is most often diagnosed with depressive disorder, substance use and post-traumatic stress syndrome. Personality disorders, such as borderline personality disorder may also be comorbid with intermittent explosive disorder
