Internet Addicition Test

  1. Jun 3, 2008 #1
    Just taken an online test for this, and although you may question it's accuracy it's just a bit of fun!

    "http://www.netaddiction.com/resources/internet_addiction_test.htm" [Broken]

    I got 35, which is 'normal' :approve:

    32, normal. I hope getting a high score isn't too common

    Hah hah. Funny test.

    a] You can check all 120 boxes.
    b] You can manage to get a score that isn't even on the rating chart (0-19).
    c] You can do both a] AND b] by checking all but one box and still getting a score of 19.

    But the big one:
    What kind of test has only one outcome - failure? You can fail only a little bit or you can fail a lot. There is no succeed option.

    36, seems like there's nothing wrong with me after all.

    Wow, only a 30, and it tells me I'm normal. There MUST be something wrong with the test. :biggrin:

    Hmm... it's pretty bad when we're all considered normal....
  8. Jun 3, 2008 #7
    err.. I got 70!

    Hmm 42. I don't feel that's accurate because some of the wording is vague. One of the questions read something like "do you ever try to cut back on your usage but find yourself unable to do so?" I spend too much time probably, but I never have tried to cut back, so I was forced to mark "rarely" when in fact that question worded slightly differently would have made me respond differently.

    Why does the title now have goog after it?

    I have no idea! I've changed it back.

    36. That's just wrong.

    Theres no "never" choice. So apparently I do everything on that list "rarely". Fun test either way, better than working : ?/

    I think it's not such a big deal since quiting is pretty simple for me!
