Name That Disorder II

Here, back by popular demand, is another DSM-5 quiz. What you do: Name the disorder based upon the single criterion provided. Got it? Easy (if you know the disorder!). And...go.

1. A repetitive and persistent pattern of behavior in which the basic rights of others or major age-appropriate societal norms or rules are violated.

2. Recurrent behavioral outbursts representing a failure to control aggressive impulses.

3. Deliberate and purposeful fire setting on more than one occasion.

4. Consistent failure to speak in specific social situations in which there is an expectation for speaking.

5. Persistent difficulty discarding or parting with possessions, regardless of their actual value.

Answers are in comments.

Remember, actual ASWB exam questions don't tend to look like these. Expect vignette-style test questions that don't readily lend themselves to one, obvious answer. On the exam (and on good practice tests), you can usually narrow down to one of two answers without too much difficulty. Choosing between the two that remain is the tricky part. But you can do it. Happy studying and good luck with the exam!
