Is Your Family a Toxic Narcissistic or Psychopathic Family? Test Free Online Family Toxicity Self-Assessment Quiz Based Test to Evaluate Effect of Family Toxicity on Your Health

A. Toxic Narcissistic/Psychopathic Family

Family is the safest place in the world, a place that provides us with the opportunity to survive and grow in life, to go out and hunt for food, and to come back and get healed. A family contains grandparents, parents, siblings, children, partners, and maybe other relationships like cousins.

A family is the first-degree relationship we have. A family provides us with a base to return to and is our first-degree socialization place.

However, when the practices in the family, the behaviors of the family members are such that it keeps us on the edge, makes us feel walking on a shell, takes immense effort to communicate and converse, give a sense of negative emotions, such a family is called a toxic family.

The environment acts on our genes.

As the family is our primary environment, a toxic family creates a toxic environment that not only threatens to impair growth, but also at the same time presents severe risks to our mental, emotional, and overall well-being.

B. Why Family Toxicity Test?

Staying in such a family makes us go down a spiral in our personal life, professional life, social life, and physical health. It is therefore super important to identify if your family has such toxicity. If your family’s toxicity score is in the alert zone, then you must leave the family and go in contact with the family. Failing to do so would eventually destroy your mental, emotional, and psychological well-being.

A family toxicity test is an important tool to check if your family’s toxicity is affecting your overall well-being or not. Toxic families also make you feel responsible for anything that goes wrong within the family and have a tendency to guilt or shame-trip its members, and criminalize them, which eventually leads to several neurotic and psychological distress, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, aggression, and so on.

C. Theory Behind the Test

This test was created based on the video of Prof. Dr. Sam Vaknin, a professor of psychology, and author of the book “Malignant Self-Love, Narcissism Revisited.”


Prof. Vaknin coined the word “Narcissism” back in the 1990s and has been actively educating students and the general public alike on the subjects of psychology, general well-being, relationships, sexuality, narcissism, and various other topics.

D. Diagnosis

Please note that ICD-10, ICD-11, DSM-IV, and DSM-V don’t recognize any “Family Toxicity”-specific disorder. Therefore, no clinical conditions can be diagnosed using this test.

However, we highly recommend that general physicians and endocrinologists recommend this test to their patients due to the high influence of toxic families in autonomic neuropathy, neuroticism, endovascular, genetic disorders, and so on.

E. Prescribing Medicines

No medicine can be prescribed solely based on the results of this test without a physical examination and implementation of other standard clinical protocols, such as clinically correlating the test results.
